Frantic vs. Quiet

Whoever believes will not be in haste. Isaiah 28:16

"Persons who believe and trust in God will not search about frantically for ways to save their own lives, but they will in quiet and confidence grasp the hand of their all-powerful and merciful God. Such persons of faith will, says Isaiah, form the cornerstone of the city of God."

Elizabeth Achtemeier, in Reading and Preaching the Book of Isaiah, page 35.
