|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
12 ut you don't have to be in a hurry. You're not running from anybody! God is leading you out of here, and the God of Israel is also your rear guard. It Was Our Pains He Carried
12 But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
