16 Therefore the Lord God said:
“Look, I have laid a stone(A) in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;(B)
the one who believes will be unshakable.[a](C)
17 And I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the mason’s level.”(D)
Hail will sweep away the false refuge,
and water will flood your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with Death will be dissolved,
and your agreement with Sheol will not last.
When the overwhelming catastrophe passes through,
you will be trampled.
