Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
‘Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem,
a firm and tested stone.
It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on.
Whoever believes need never be shaken.’
Greek version reads: ‘Look! I am placing a stone in the foundation of Jerusalem [literally Zion], / a precious cornerstone for its foundation, chosen for great honour. / Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.’
Isaiah 54:11 -12:
‘O storm-battered city,
troubled and desolate!
I will rebuild you with precious jewels
and make your foundations from lapis lazuli
I will make your towers of sparkling rubies,
your gates of shining gems,
and your walls of precious stones.’
