You will not need to fight this battle. Position yourselves, stand firm, and see the salvation of Yahweh on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Go out against them tomorrow, for Yahweh is with you.’” Bible see other translations

“Stand firm.” The Hebrew text is just “stand,” but in this context it means to stand firm. In the face of the huge enemy army, it would be reasonable that some of the people would have run away.
