ISA-10:1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that

write grievousness [which] they have prescribed;

ISA-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!

ISA-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?

ISA-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.

ISA-10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in

their hand is mine indignation.

ISA-10:6 I will send him against an 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.

ISA-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 few.

ISA-10:8 For he saith, [Are] not my princes altogether kings?

ISA-10:9 [Is] not Calno as Carchemish? [is] not Hamath as Arpad?

[is] not Samaria as Damascus?

ISA-10:10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and

whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria:

ISA-10:11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols,

 so do to Jerusalem and her idols?

ISA-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.

ISA-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]:

ISA-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.

ISA-10:15 Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth

therewith? [or] shall the saw magnify itself against him that

shaketh it? as if the rod should shake [itself] against them

that lift it up, [or] as if the staff should lift up [itself, as

if it were] no wood.

ISA-10:16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send

among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle

a burning like the burning of a fire.

ISA-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;

ISA-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

standardbearer fainteth.

ISA-10:19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few,

that a child may write them.

ISA-10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the

remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob,

 shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall

stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

ISA-10:21 The remnant shall return, [even] the remnant of Jacob,

unto the mighty God.

ISA-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.

ISA-10:23 For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption,

even determined, in the midst of all the land.

ISA-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.

ISA-10:25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall

cease, and mine anger in their destruction.

ISA-10:26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir 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.

ISA-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 anointing.

ISA-10:28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at

Michmash he hath laid up his carriages:

ISA-10:29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up

their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.

ISA-10:30 Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to

be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth.

ISA-10:31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather

themselves to flee.

ISA-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 Jerusalem.

ISA-10:33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the

bough with terror: and the high ones of stature [shall be] hewn

down, and the haughty shall be humbled.

ISA-10:34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with

iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.
