despises you and scorns you:
Daughter Jerusalem
shakes her head behind your back. Who is it you mocked and blasphemed?
Against whom have you raised your voice
and lifted your eyes in pride?
Against the Holy One of Israel!read more.
You have mocked the Lord through your messengers.
You have said:With my many chariots
I have gone up to the heights of the mountains,
to the far recesses of Lebanon.
I cut down its tallest cedars,
its choice cypress trees.
I came to its farthest outpost,
its densest forest. I dug wells,
and I drank foreign waters.
I dried up all the streams of Egypt
with the soles of my feet. Have you not heard?
I designed it long ago;
I planned it in days gone by.
I have now brought it to pass,
and you have crushed fortified cities
into piles of rubble. Their inhabitants have become powerless,
dismayed, and ashamed.
They are plants of the field,
tender grass,
grass on the rooftops,
blasted by the east wind. But I know your sitting down,
your going out and your coming in,
and your raging against Me. Because your raging against Me
and your arrogance have reached My ears,
I will put My hook in your nose
and My bit in your mouth;
I will make you go back
the way you came. “This will be the sign for you: This year you will eat what grows on its own, and in the second year what grows from that. But in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit. The surviving remnant of the house of Israel will again take root downward and bear fruit upward. For a remnant will go out from Jerusalem and survivors, from Mount Zion. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will accomplish this. Therefore, this is what the Lord says about the king of Assyria:
He will not enter this city
or shoot an arrow there
or come before it with a shield
or build up an assault ramp against it. He will go back
on the road that he came
and he will not enter this city.
This is the Lord’s declaration. I will defend this city and rescue it
for My sake and for the sake of My servant David.” That night the angel of the Lord went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies! So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke camp and left. He returned home and lived in Nineveh. One day, while he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisroch, his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword and escaped to the land of Ararat. Then his son Esar-haddon became king in his place.

Habakkuk 1:6-11

Look! I am raising up the Chaldeans,
that bitter, impetuous nation
that marches across the earth’s open spaces
to seize territories not its own. They are fierce and terrifying;
their views of justice and sovereignty
stem from themselves. Their horses are swifter than leopards
and more fierce than wolves of the night.
Their horsemen charge ahead;
their horsemen come from distant lands.
They fly like an eagle, swooping to devour.read more.
All of them come to do violence;
their faces are set in determination.
They gather prisoners like sand. They mock kings,
and rulers are a joke to them.
They laugh at every fortress
and build siege ramps to capture it. Then they sweep by like the wind
and pass through.
They are guilty; their strength is their god.
