New King James Version
Arrogant Assyria Also Judged
5 “Woe to Assyria, (A)the rod of My anger
And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.
6 I will send him against (B)an ungodly nation,
And against the people of My wrath
I will (C)give him charge,
To seize the spoil, to take the prey,
And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7 (D)Yet he does not mean so,
Nor does his heart think so;
But it is in his heart to destroy,
And cut off not a few nations.
