Judgment on Arrogant Assyria
5 Woe to Assyria, ethe rod of my anger;
the staff in their hands is my fury!
15 Shall xthe axe boast over him who hews with it,
or the saw magnify itself against him who wields it?
As if a rod should wield him who lifts it,
or as if a staff should lift him who is not wood!
God Will Swallow Up Death Forever
25 O Lord, jyou are my God;
kI will exalt you; I will praise your name,
for you have done wonderful things,
lplans formed of old, faithful and sure.
2 For you have made the city ma heap,
the fortified city a ruin;
the foreigners' palace is a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.
