God Will Punish Assyria

God says, “How terrible it will be for the king of Assyria.
    I use him like a rod to show my anger;
    in anger I use Assyria like a club.
I send it to fight against a nation that is separated from God.
    I am angry with those people,
    so I command Assyria to fight against them,
to take their wealth from them,
    to trample them down like dirt in the streets.
But Assyria’s king doesn’t understand that I am using him;
    he doesn’t know he is a tool for me.
He only wants to destroy other people
    and to defeat many nations.
