Assyria

Hostile empire; conquerers of Israel

Assyria

Assyria is mentioned many times in Nephi’s quotation of Isaiah. It is portrayed as the enemy of Judah, and the bringer of doom and destruction. Assyria is often the unknowing tool of God; God allows their military success to teach Judah a lesson. However, Assyria does not recognize the influence of God in their success, and boast in their own strength.
