16     You’ve said, “No, we’ll flee on horses.”
        So you flee.
    You’ve added, “We’ll ride on fast horses.”
        So those who chase you will also be fast.
17 One thousand people will flee when one person threatens them,
    and you will flee when five threaten you.
        Then you will be left alone
            like a flagpole on top of a mountain,
            like a signpost on a hill.
18 The Lord is waiting to be kind to you.
He rises to have compassion on you.
    The Lord is a God of justice.
        Blessed are all those who wait for him.
