Isaiah 10:5-11 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

Arrogant Assyria Also Judged

Ah, Assyria, the rod of my anger—
    the club in their hands is my fury!
Against a godless nation I send him,
    and against the people of my wrath I command him,
to take spoil and seize plunder,
    and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
But this is not what he intends,
    nor does he have this in mind;
but it is in his heart to destroy,
    and to cut off nations not a few.
For he says:
“Are not my commanders all kings?
Is not Calno like Carchemish?
    Is not Hamath like Arpad?
    Is not Samaria like Damascus?
10 As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols
    whose images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Samaria,
11 shall I not do to Jerusalem and her idols
    what I have done to Samaria and her images?”
