The Assyrian King’s Demise

14 The Lord has issued an order concerning you:

There will be no offspring
to carry on your name.[a](A)
I will eliminate the carved idol and cast image
from the house of your gods;(B)
I will prepare your grave,
for you are contemptible.

15 [b]Look to the mountains—
the feet of one bringing good news(C)
and proclaiming peace!
Celebrate your festivals, Judah;
fulfill your vows.
For the wicked one will never again
march through you;
he will be entirely wiped out.
