15 The LORD of hosts will defend them. And they will devour and trample on the sling stones; And they will drink and be boisterous as with wine; And they will be filled like a sacrificial basin, Drenched like the corners of the altar. 15 and the LORD Almighty will shield them. They will destroy and overcome with slingstones. They will drink and roar as with wine; they will be full like a bowl used for sprinkling the corners of the altar.
16 And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land. 16 The LORD their God will save them on that day as the flock of his people. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown.
17 For what comeliness and beauty will be theirs! Grain will make the young men flourish, and new wine the virgins. 17 How attractive and beautiful they will be! Grain will make the young men thrive, and new wine the young women.
