God’s Judgment on Assyria
5“Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger, in whose hand is the club of my wrath!
6I send him against a godless nation, I dispatch him against a people who anger me, to seize loot and snatch plunder, and to trample them down like mud in the streets.
7But this is not what he intends, this is not what he has in mind; his purpose is to destroy, to put an end to many nations.
