Isaiah 33:7-9 Living Bible (TLB)
7 But now your ambassadors weep in bitter disappointment, for Assyria has refused their cry for peace. 8 Your roads lie in ruins; travelers detour on back roads. The Assyrians have broken their peace pact[a] and care nothing for the promises they made in the presence of witnesses—they have no respect for anyone. 9 All the land of Israel is in trouble; Lebanon has been destroyed; Sharon has become a wilderness; Bashan and Carmel are plundered.
