The Power of Assyria Will Be Broken

The Lord is good.
He protects those who trust him
    in times of trouble.
But like a roaring flood,
the Lord chases his enemies
    into dark places
    and destroys them.
So don’t plot against the Lord!
He wipes out his enemies,
    and they never revive.

The Lord is good,(A)
    a refuge in times of trouble.(B)
He cares for(C) those who trust in him,(D)
    but with an overwhelming flood(E)
he will make an end of Nineveh;
    he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.

Whatever they plot(F) against the Lord
    he will bring[a] to an end;
    trouble will not come a second time.
