The cornerstone of justice at Zion (Isa 28:16-28:16)

“Therefore thus says Yahweh God.

‘See!

I am laying in Zion

A foundation stone,

A tested stone,

A precious cornerstone,

A sure foundation.

‘One who trusts

Will not panic.’

I will make

Justice the line

With righteousness the plummet.’”

Yahweh, via Isaiah, says that he is going to lay a new tested foundation as the precious cornerstone in Zion. People who trust in Yahweh will not panic. The line and the plummet lead bob for this construction of the new Jerusalem will be justice and righteousness.
