'Measuring Line' in the Bible

Therefore thus says the Lord: I have returned to Jerusalem with compassion (lovingkindness and mercy). My house shall be built in it, says the Lord of hosts, and a measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem [with a view to rebuilding its walls].

I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.
