When the whirlwind passes,
the wicked are no more,
but the righteous are secure forever.
You lift me up on the wind and make me ride it;
You scatter me in the storm.
when terror strikes you like a storm
and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
when trouble and stress overcome you.
He batters me with a whirlwind
and multiplies my wounds without cause.
I would hurry to my shelter
from the raging wind and the storm.”
For You have been a stronghold for the poor,
a stronghold for the needy person in his distress,
a refuge from the rain, a shade from the heat.
When the breath of the violent
is like rain against a wall,
Each will be like a shelter from the wind,
a refuge from the rain,
like streams of water in a dry land
and the shade of a massive rock in an arid land.
“Poor Jerusalem, storm-tossed, and not comforted,
I will set your stones in black mortar,
and lay your foundations in sapphires.
“This is what the Lord of Hosts says:Pay attention! Disaster spreads
from nation to nation.
A great storm is stirred up
from the ends of the earth.”
You, all of your troops, and many peoples with you will advance, coming like a thunderstorm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on the rock. The rain fell, the rivers rose, and the winds blew and pounded that house. Yet it didn’t collapse, because its foundation was on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of Mine and doesn’t act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.read more.
The rain fell, the rivers rose, the winds blew and pounded that house, and it collapsed. And its collapse was great!”
But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
