Isaiah 10

10:1 Woe to them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write
 grievousness [which] they have prescribed;
10:2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the
 right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their
 prey, and [that] they may rob the fatherless!
10:3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the
 desolation [which] shall come from far? to whom will ye flee
 for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
10:4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and
 they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not
 turned away, but his hand [is] stretched out still.
10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of my anger, and the staff in their
 hand is my indignation.
10:6 I will send him against a hypocritical nation, and against
 the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the
 spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the
 mire of the streets.
10:7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so;
 but [it is] in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a
10:8 For he saith, [Are] not my princes altogether kings?
10:9 [Is] not Calno as Carchemish? [is] not Hamath as Arpad?
 [is] not Samaria as Damascus?
10:10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose
 graven images excelled them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;
10:11 Shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so
 do to Jerusalem and her idols?
10:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, [that] when the LORD hath
 performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I
 will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of
 Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.
10:13 For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done [it],
 and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the
 bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I
 have put down the inhabitants like a valiant [man]:
10:14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people:
 and as one gathereth eggs [that are] left, have I gathered all
 the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened
 the mouth, or peeped.
10:15 Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth with it?
 [or] shall the saw magnify itself against him that moveth it?
 as if the rod should shake [itself] against them that lift it,
 [or] as if the staff should lift [itself], [as if it were] no
10:16 Therefore will the LORD, the LORD of hosts, send among his
 fat ones leanness; and under his glory he will kindle a burning
 like the burning of a fire.
10:17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy
 One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and
 his briers in one day;
10:18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his
 fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a
 standard-bearer fainteth.
10:19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that
 a child may write them.
10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the remnant
 of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob,
 shall no more again lean upon him that smote them; but shall
 lean upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
10:21 The remnant shall return, [even] the remnant of Jacob, to
 the mighty God.
10:22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea,
 [yet] a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed
 shall overflow with righteousness.
10:23 For the Lord GOD of hosts will make a consumption, even
 determined, in the midst of all the land.
10:24 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people
 that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall
 smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against
 thee, after the manner of Egypt.
10:25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall
 cease, and my anger in their destruction.
10:26 And the LORD of hosts will raise up a scourge for him
 according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and
 [as] his rod [was] upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after
 the manner of Egypt.
10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] his burden
 shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from
 off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the
10:28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash
 he hath laid up his furniture.
10:29 They have gone over the passage: they have taken up their
 lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul hath fled.
10:30 Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be
 heard to Laish, O poor Anathoth.
10:31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather
 themselves to flee.
10:32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his
 hand [against] the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of
10:33 Behold, the LORD, the LORD of hosts will lop the bough
 with terror: and the high ones of stature [shall be] hewn down,
 and the haughty shall be humbled.

 iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.
