Lexham English Bible
16 Therefore the Lord Yahweh says this:
“Look! I am laying a stone in Zion,
a tested[a] stone,
a precious cornerstone,
a founded foundation:
‘The one who trusts will not panic.’[b]
17 And I will make justice the measuring line,
and righteousness the plumb line;
and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,[c]
and waters will flood over the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death will be annulled,
and your agreement with Sheol will not stand;
you will become a trampling place for the overwhelming flood when it passes through.
