Isaiah 54, Sapphires and Jasper

Isaiah 54
10 For the mountains shall be moved, and the hills shall tremble; but my mercy shall not depart from you, and the covenant of my peace shall not be moved: said the Lord that has mercy on you. 11 O poor little one, tossed with tempest, without all comfort, behold I will lay your stones in order, and will lay your foundations with sapphires, 12 and I will make your bulwarks of jasper: and your gates of graven stones, and all your borders of desirable stones. 13 All your children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 And you shall be founded in justice: depart far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, an inhabitant shall come, who was not with me, he that was a stranger to you before, shall be joined to you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and brings forth an instrument for his work, and I have created the killer to destroy. 17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper: and every tongue that resists you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of the Lord, and their justice with me, says the Lord.
