16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,(A) a tested stone,(B)
    a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;(C)
the one who relies on it
    will never be stricken with panic.(D)
17 I will make justice(E) the measuring line
    and righteousness the plumb line;(F)
hail(G) will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
    and water will overflow(H) your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
    your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.(I)
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,(J)
    you will be beaten down(K) by it.
