The third vision of the measurement (Zech 2:1-2:1)

“I looked up!

I saw a man

With a measuring line

In his hand!”

The next vision of Zechariah was about a man with a measuring line in his hand.  This was somewhat like the prophet Ezekiel, chapters 40-41, with the bronze man who was measuring everything in Jerusalem.

The eastern gate (Ezek 42:15-42:15)

“When he had finished measuring

The interior

Of the temple area,

He led me out

By the gate

That faces east.

He measured the temple area

All around.”

The bronze man had finished measuring the inside of the Temple area.  He then took Ezekiel out the east gate, so that that they could measure the outer wall of the Temple area.
