Tree of Life Version
Assyria, the Rod
5 Oy to Assyria, the rod of My anger—
the club in their hand is My indignation!
6 I am sending it against an ungodly nation,
and against the people of My fury I am commissioning it,
to take spoil and plunder,
to trample them down
like mud in the streets.
7 Yet that is not what Assyria intends,
nor is that what he is thinking about.
Rather his heart is to destroy,
and to cut down nations—only a few!
