Context Readings

Judgment On Assyria's Arrogance

4 Surely they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. In all this His hand is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still. 5 Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger! And the staff in their hand is My fury. 6 I will send him against an ungodly nation, and against the people of My wrath. I will command him to take the plunder, and to strip off the spoil, and to trample them like the mud of the streets.
