11 (A)“O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted,
    behold, (B)I will set your stones in antimony,
    (C)and lay your foundations with sapphires.[a]
12 I will make your pinnacles of agate,[b]
    your gates of carbuncles,[c]
    and all your wall of precious stones.
13 (D)All your children (E)shall be taught by the Lord,
    (F)and great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness you shall be established;
    you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
    and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15 (G)If anyone stirs up strife,
    it is not from me;
whoever stirs up strife with you
    shall fall because of you.
16 Behold, I have created the smith
    who blows the fire of coals
    and produces a weapon for its purpose.
I have also created the ravager to destroy;
17     no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed,
    and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord
    (H)and their vindication[d] from me, declares the Lord.”
