16 That one will survive and prosper on the heights of Zion
and take comfort in the shelter of rock fortresses,

Your eyes will take in a land that stretches far beyond the horizon.
18 You will think back on the terror you experienced:
“Where is the officer who counted the plunder, weighed out our taxes, and calculated our defenses?”
