New King James Version
16 And you said, “No, for we will flee on horses”—
Therefore you shall flee!
And, “We will ride on swift horses”—
Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
God Will Be Gracious
18 Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be (B)gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
(C)Blessed are all those who (D)wait for Him.
- Isaiah 30:17 A tree stripped of branches
