പിന്നെ ദണ്ഡുപോലെയുള്ള ഒരു കോൽ എന്റെ കയ്യിൽ കിട്ടി കല്പന ലഭിച്ചതു: നീ എഴുന്നേറ്റു ദൈവത്തിന്റെ ആലയത്തെയും യാഗപീ ത്തെയും അതിൽ നമസ്കരിക്കുന്നവരെയും അളക്കുക.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you."

കൊടുപ്പിൻ ; എന്നാൽ നിങ്ങൾക്കു കിട്ടും; അമർത്തി കുലുക്കി കവിയുന്നൊരു നല്ല അളവു നിങ്ങളുടെ മടിയിൽ തരും; നിങ്ങൾ അളക്കുന്ന അളവിനാൽ നിങ്ങൾക്കും അളന്നു കിട്ടും.

Zechariah 2:2

So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length."

നീ എവിടേക്കു പോകുന്നു എന്നു ഞാൻ ചോദിച്ചതിന്നു അവൻ : ഞാൻ യെരൂശലേമിനെ അളന്നു അതിന്റെ വീതി എന്തെന്നും നീളം എന്തെന്നും നോക്കുവാൻ പോകുന്നു എന്നു എന്നോടു പറഞ്ഞു.
