Isaiah 33:20-22


33:20 Look at Zion, the city where we hold religious festivals!

You 1  will see Jerusalem, 2 

a peaceful settlement,

a tent that stays put; 3 

its stakes will never be pulled up;

none of its ropes will snap in two.

33:21 Instead the Lord will rule there as our mighty king. 4 

Rivers and wide streams will flow through it; 5 

no war galley will enter; 6 

no large ships will sail through. 7 

33:22 For the Lord, our ruler,

the Lord, our commander,

the Lord, our king –

he will deliver us.
