Isaiah 10:6-9 The Voice (VOICE)
6 I am sending Assyria against a nation that refuses to act rightly,
delegating it to humble a people who have frustrated
and infuriated Me by their blithe dismissal.
Assyria will snatch their wealth, seize their treasures,
and trample over them like mud in the streets.
7 But they will get cocky. Assyria has its own intentions for destruction,
to move against other people and other places to cut them down.
8-9 The victories make them think they’re invincible:
The king of Assyria says:
“Aren’t all of my princes destined to be kings?
Calno fell just like Carchemish.
I took Hamath as easily as Arpad. Samaria, too, fell like Damascus.
