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;
19 For the people yshall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem;
You shall zweep no more.
He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry;
When He hears it, He will aanswer you.
Yet cyour teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore,
But your eyes shall see your teachers.
“This is the way, walk in it,”
Whenever you dturn to the right hand
Or whenever you turn to the left.
