s“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
tBut you would not,
Therefore you shall flee!
And, “We will ride on swift horses”—
Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
17 uOne thousand shall flee at the threat of one,
At the threat of five you shall flee,
Till you are left as a 5pole on top of a mountain
And as a banner on a hill.
18 Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be vgracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
A tree stripped of branches
