Yahweh Says Regarding King Sennacherib of Assyria

“Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger,

    in whose hand is the club of my wrath!

I send him against a godless nation,

    I dispatch him against a people who anger me,

to seize loot and snatch plunder,

    and to trample them down like mud in the streets.

But this is not what he intends,

    this is not what he has in mind;

his purpose is to destroy,

    to put an end to many nations.

‘Are not my commanders all kings?’ he says.

    ‘Has not Kalno fared like Carchemish?

Is not Hamath like Arpad,

    and Samaria like Damascus?

10 As my hand seized the kingdoms of the idols,

    kingdoms whose images excelled those of Jerusalem and Samaria—

11 shall I not deal with Jerusalem and her images

    as I dealt with Samaria and her idols?’”

 

(Isaiah 10:5-11)
