16 Therefore, the Lord God says:
Look! I’m laying in Zion a stone,
    a tested stone, a valuable cornerstone,
    a sure foundation:
    the one who trusts won’t tremble.
17 I will make justice the measuring line
    and righteousness the plumb line.
But hail will sweep away the hiding place of lies,
    and water will overflow the shelter.
18 Your deal with death[a] will be dissolved,
    and your pact with the grave[b] won’t stand.
The rushing flood: when it passes through,
    you will be annihilated by it.
