31 The voice of the Lord will shatter Assyria;(A)
    with his rod he will strike(B) them down.
32 Every stroke the Lord lays on them
    with his punishing club(C)
will be to the music of timbrels(D) and harps,
    as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm.(E)
33 Topheth(F) has long been prepared;
    it has been made ready for the king.

    with an abundance of fire and wood;

    like a stream of burning sulfur,(H)
    sets it ablaze.(I)
