2 Samuel 8:2
And he smote Moab, and measured them with the line casting, them down to the ground, and be measured with two lines to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive, - so the Moabites became David's, as servants, bringing gifts.
2 Kings 21:13
And I will stretch over Jerusalem, the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab, - and will wipe out Jerusalem, as one wipeth out a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down;
But I will make - Justice the line, and Righteousness the plummet, - And the hail shall, sweep away, your refuge of lying, And your hiding-place, the waters shall overflow;
That the vomiting pelican and the bittern may possess it: And the great owl and the raven, dwell therein; Then will he stretch out over it The line of desolation, and The plummet of emptiness.
Yahweh hath devised to lay in ruins, the wall of the daughter of Zion, he hath stretched out a line, he hath not turned back his hand from swallowing up, - Thus hath he caused to mourn - rampart and wall, together, have they languished!
And when he brought me thither, then lo! a man whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze, with a flax-cord in his hand and measuring reed, - and he was standing in the gate.
Then lifted I up mine eyes and looked, and lo! a Man, - and, in his hand, a Measuring Line.
And there was given unto me a reed, like unto a staff, saying - Rise, and measure the Sanctuary of God, and the altar, and them who are doing homage therein;
And, he that was talking with me, had, for a measure, a reed of gold, that he might measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
Here, My Lord, Yahweh, gave me to see, - and lo! there was a basket of summer fruit.
