2 Nephi 20:24–27

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.

For yet a very little while,
and the indignation shall cease,
and mine anger in their destruction.

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.

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.
