Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us.
17 Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, 17 Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,
18 Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. 18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
19 The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places.

On my stringed instruments.
