English Standard Version
Judgment on Arrogant Assyria
5 Woe to Assyria, (A)the rod of my anger;
the staff in their hands is my fury!
6 Against a (B)godless nation I send him,
and against the people of my wrath I command him,
to take (C)spoil and seize plunder,
and to (D)tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7 But he (E)does not so intend,
and his heart does not so think;
but it is in his heart to destroy,
and to cut off nations not a few;
