Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:1 -

Woe to those who enact evil statutes

And to those who constantly record [fn]mischief,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:2 -

So as to turn the poor away from their cause

And rob the afflicted of My people of their justice,

So that widows may be their spoil

And that they may plunder the [fn]orphans.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:3 -

Now what will you do in the day of visitation,

And in the devastation which will come from afar?

To whom will you flee for help?

And where will you leave your [fn]glory?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:4 -

Nothing remains but to crouch [fn]among the captives

Or fall [fn]among those killed.

In spite of all this, His anger does not turn back

And His hand is still stretched out.

Yahweh’s Anger with Assyria’s Arrogance

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:5 -

Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger

And the staff in whose hands is My indignation,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:6 -

I send it against a godless nation

And command it against the people of My fury

To capture spoil and to seize plunder,

And to [fn]trample them down like mud in the streets.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:7 -

But it does not intend to act in this way,

And it does not think in its heart in this way,

Rather, what is in its heart is to destroy

And to cut off [fn]many nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:8 -

For it says, “Are not my princes [fn]all kings?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:9 -

“Is not Calno like Carchemish,

Or Hamath like Arpad,

Or Samaria like Damascus?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:10 -

“As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols,

Whose graven images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Samaria,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:11 -

Shall I not [fn]do to Jerusalem and her images

Just as I have done to Samaria and her idols?”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:12 -

So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, “I will [fn]punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the pomp of his eyes which are raised high.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:13 - For he has said,

“By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I did this,

For I have understanding;

And I removed the boundaries of the peoples

And plundered their treasures,

And like a mighty man I brought down [fn]their inhabitants,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:14 -

And my hand reached for the wealth of the peoples like a nest,

And as one gathers abandoned eggs, I gathered all the earth;

And there was not one that flapped its wing or opened its beak or chirped.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:15 -

Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it?

Is the saw to magnify itself over the one who wields it?

That would be like a rod wielding those who lift it,

Or like a staff lifting him who is not wood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:16 -

Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of hosts, will send a wasting disease among his stout warriors;

And under his glory a fire will be kindled like a burning flame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:17 -

And the light of Israel will become a fire and his Holy One a flame,

And it will burn and devour his thorns and his briars in a single day.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:18 -

And He will bring to an end the glory of his forest and of his fruitful orchard, both soul and body,

And it will be as when a sick man wastes away.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:19 -

And the rest of the trees of his forest will be so small in number

That a child could write them down.

A Remnant Will Return

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:20 -

Now it will be in that day, that the remnant of Israel and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:21 -

A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:22 -

For though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea,

Only a remnant within them will return;

A destructive end is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:23 -

For a complete destruction, one that is decreed, Lord Yahweh of hosts will do in the midst of the whole land.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:24 -

Therefore thus says Lord Yahweh of hosts, “O My people who inhabit Zion, do not fear the Assyrian [fn]who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:25 - “For in a very little while My indignation against you will end and My anger will be directed to their destruction.”
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:26 - And Yahweh of hosts will waken a scourge against him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:27 - So it will be in that day, that [fn]his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:28 -

He has come against Aiath,

He has passed through Migron;

At Michmash he deposited his baggage.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:29 -

They have gone through the pass, saying,

“Geba will be our lodging place.”

Ramah trembles, and Gibeah of Saul has fled away.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:30 -

Cry aloud with your voice, O daughter of Gallim!

Pay attention, Laishah and [fn]afflicted Anathoth!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:31 -

Madmenah has fled.

The inhabitants of Gebim have sought refuge.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:32 -

Yet today he will stand at Nob;

He shakes his fist at the mountain of the [fn]daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:33 -

Behold, the Lord, Yahweh of hosts, will lop off the boughs with a terrible crash;

Those also who are high in stature will be cut in pieces

And those who are lofty will be made low.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:34 -

He will cut down the thickets of the forest with an iron axe,

And Lebanon will fall [fn]by the Mighty One.
