Bible: Isaiah 10:5-7

The Lord Turns on Arrogant Assyria

10:5 Assyria, the club I use to vent my anger, is as good as dead, 1 

a cudgel with which I angrily punish. 2 

10:6 I sent him 3  against a godless 4  nation,

I ordered him to attack the people with whom I was angry, 5 

to take plunder and to carry away loot,

to trample them down 6  like dirt in the streets.

10:7 But he does not agree with this,

his mind does not reason this way, 7 

for his goal is to destroy,

and to eliminate many nations. 8
