Isaiah 28:2


28:2 Look, the sovereign master 1  sends a strong, powerful one. 2 

With the force of a hailstorm or a destructive windstorm, 3 

with the might of a driving, torrential rainstorm, 4 

he will knock that crown 5  to the ground with his hand. 6 

Isaiah 28:17


28:17 I will make justice the measuring line,

fairness the plumb line;

hail will sweep away the unreliable refuge, 7 

the floodwaters will overwhelm the hiding place.
