54 Revised Standard Version Passage

11"O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted,
behold, I will set your stones in antimony,
and lay your foundations with sapphires Or: lapis lazuli.
The future Jerusalem. Is.54.11-17
12I will make your pinnacles of agate,
your gates of carbuncles,
and all your wall of precious stones.
 
13All your sons shall be taught by the LORD,
and great shall be the prosperity of your sons.
 
14In 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.
 
15If any one stirs up strife,
it is not from me;
whoever stirs up strife with you
shall fall because of you.
 
16Behold, 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;
 
17no weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper,
and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD
and their vindication from me,
 says the LORD."
