The Lord’s Purpose and the King of Assyria

The Lord says:

I am furious! And I will use the king of Assyria[a] as a club to beat down you godless people. I am angry with you, and I will send him to attack you. He will take what he wants and walk on you like mud in the streets. He has even bigger plans in mind, because he wants to destroy many nations.
