32 This very day he will halt at Nob,
    he will shake his fist
    at the mount of daughter Zion,
    the hill of Jerusalem.

    will lop the boughs with terrifying power;
the tallest trees will be cut down,
    and the lofty will be brought low.
34 He will hack down the thickets of the forest with an ax,
    and Lebanon with its majestic trees[a] will fall.

  1. Isaiah 10:34 Cn Compare Gk Vg: Heb with a majestic one

therefore, the Lord is bringing up against it the mighty flood waters of the River, the king of Assyria and all his glory; it will rise above all its channels and overflow all its banks; it will sweep on into Judah as a flood, and, pouring over, it will reach up to the neck; and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.

Band together, you peoples, and be dismayed;
    listen, all you far countries;
gird yourselves and be dismayed;
    gird yourselves and be dismayed!
10 Take counsel together, but it shall be brought to naught;
    speak a word, but it will not stand,
    for God is with us.[a]
