Judgment on Assyria’s Arrogance

Ah! Assyria, the rod of my anger,
    and a staff is in their hand: my wrath!
I send him against a godless nation,
    and I command him against the people of my wrath,
to capture spoil
    and to carry off plunder,
and to make them[a] a trampling place,
    like the clay of the streets.
But he does not think this,[b]
    and his heart does not plan this.
For it is in his heart to destroy
    and to cut off not a few nations.
