16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmithb
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weaponc fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyerd to wreak havoc;
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,e
and you will refutef every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servantsg of the Lord,
and this is their vindicationh from me,”
declares the Lord.
