The Lord of Hosts hath sworn, saying:
“Surely as I have thought,
so shall it come to pass.
And as I have purposed,
so shall it stand—
“That I will bring the Assyrian in my land,
and upon my mountains tread him under foot.
Then shall his yoke depart from off them,
and his burden depart from off their shoulders.”
This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth;
and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all nations.
For the Lord of Hosts hath purposed,
and who shall disannul? And his hand is stretched out,
and who shall turn it back?
