5For I will be a wall of fire all around it, says the Lord, and I will be the glory within it.”Interlude: An Appeal to the Exiles
6Up, up! Flee from the land of the north, says the Lord; for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven, says the Lord.7Up! Escape to Zion, you that live with daughter Babylon.8For thus said the Lord of hosts (after his glory sent me) regarding the nations that plundered you: Truly, one who touches you touches the apple of my eye.9See now, I am going to raise my hand against them, and they shall become plunder for their own slaves. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me.
