Isaiah 30:16-18 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
16 and you said,
“No! For we will flee on horses!” Therefore you shall flee!
And, “We will ride on swift horses!” Therefore your pursuers shall be swift!
17 One thousand because of a threat of one,
because of a threat of five you shall flee,
until you are left like a flagstaff on top of a mountain,
and like a signal on a hill.
Yahweh Will Show Mercy
18 Therefore Yahweh waits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he will rise up to show you mercy,
for Yahweh is a God of justice;
blessed are all those who wait for him.
