Isaiah 30:16-18 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

16 but you said,
“No! We will speed upon horses,”
    therefore you shall speed away;
and, “We will ride upon swift steeds,”
    therefore your pursuers shall be swift.
17 A thousand shall flee at the threat of one,
    at the threat of five you shall flee,
till you are left
    like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain,
    like a signal on a hill.

God’s Promise to Zion

18 Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you;
    therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
    blessed are all those who wait for him.
