15 “I am going to make you into a new threshing[a] sledge
    with sharp, double-edged teeth.
    You will thresh the mountains and crush them to dust.
    You will turn the hills into straw.
16 You will winnow[b] them.
    The wind will carry them away.
    The windstorm will scatter them.
    But you will find joy in Yahweh
    and praise Qedosh Yisrael.

17 “The poor and needy are looking for water, but there is none.
    Their tongues are parched with thirst.
    I, Yahweh, will answer them.
    I, the Elohim of Israel, will not abandon them.
