16 This is what the Almighty Lord says:

I am going to lay a rock in Zion,
    a rock that has been tested,
    a precious cornerstone,
    a solid foundation.
        Whoever believes in him will not worry.
17 I will make justice a measuring line
    and righteousness a plumb line.
Hail will sweep away your refuge of lies,
    and floodwaters will wash away your hiding place.
18 Your treaty with death will be wiped away.
Your agreement with the grave will not stand.
When the overwhelming disaster passes by,
    you will be trampled by it.
