Zechariah 2:10 – Verse of the Day 4/7/13
Zechariah was written to encourage the people of Israel after their return from exile. Chapter 2 in particular refers to the rebuilding of Jerusalem (as indicated by the figure with the measuring line, a reference to Jeremiah 31:39). God has promised not to leave His people, neither the remnant of the faithful that returned to Jerusalem after the exile, nor those who trust in Him today. His presence is the source of our hope.
