6 I send it against a godless nation And commission it against the people of My fury To capture booty and to seize plunder, And to [a]trample them down like mud in the streets. 7 Yet it does not so intend, Nor does [b]it plan so in its heart, But rather it is [c]its purpose to destroy And to cut off [d]many nations. 8 For it says, “Are not my princes [e]all kings? 9 “Is not Calno like Carchemish, Or Hamath like Arpad, Or Samaria like Damascus? 10 “As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols, Whose graven images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Samaria, 11 Shall I not [f]do to Jerusalem and her images Just as I have done to Samaria and her idols?”
12 So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, “I will [g]punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the pomp of [h]his haughtiness.”
