Bible: Isaiah 10:15-19
10:15 Does an ax exalt itself over the one who wields it,
or a saw magnify itself over the one who cuts with it? 1
As if a scepter should brandish the one who raises it,
or a staff should lift up what is not made of wood!
10:17 The light of Israel 5 will become a fire,
their Holy One 6 will become a flame;
it will burn and consume the Assyrian king’s 7 briers
and his thorns in one day.
10:18 The splendor of his forest and his orchard
will be completely destroyed, 8
as when a sick man’s life ebbs away. 9
10:19 There will be so few trees left in his forest,
a child will be able to count them. 10
