International Standard Version
The Lord’s Goodness in the Midst of Judgment
7 The Lord is good—
a refuge in troubled times.[a]
He knows those who are confiding in him.
8 But with an overwhelming deluge he will bring utter desolation to Nineveh,[b]
and his enemies he will pursue with darkness.
9 What are you scheming against the Lord?
He will bring about utter desolation—
adversity will not strike twice!
