Zechariah 2:7-11 LITV
(7) Ho, O Zion! Escape, you who live with the daughter of Babylon. (8) For so says Jehovah of Hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations who plundered you; for he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye. (9) For, behold, I will shake My hand over them, and they shall be a prize for their servants. And you shall know that Jehovah has sent Me. (10) Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion. For, lo, I come; and I will dwell among you, says Jehovah. (11) And many nations shall be joined to Jehovah in that day, and they shall be My people. And I will dwell among you; and you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent Me to you.

Zechariah 2:7-11 NWT
7 "Hey there, Zion! Make your escape, you who are dwelling with the daughter of Babylon. 8 For this is what Jehovah of armies has said, 'Following after [the] glory he has sent me to the nations that were despoiling you people; for he that is touching you is touching my eyeball. 9 For here I am waving my hand against them, and they will have to become spoil to their slaves.' And you people will certainly know that Jehovah of armies himself has sent me. 10 "Cry out loudly and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for here I am coming, and I will reside in the midst of you," is the utterance of Jehovah. 11 "And many nations will certainly become joined to Jehovah in that day, and they will actually become my people; and I will reside in the midst of you." And you will have to know that Jehovah of armies himself has sent me to you.
