There you will be delivered, there the LORD will rescue you from the power of your enemies." 11 "Now many nations have gathered against you, saying, "Let her be defiled,' and "Let's look down on Zion.' 12 But they don't know the thoughts of the LORD, and they don't understand his tactics, for he will gather them like harvested grain to his threshing floor.
