The voice of the LORD will shatter Assyria;7 with his scepter he will strike8 them down.
Every stroke the LORD lays on them with his punishing rod9 will be to the music of tambourines10 and harps, as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm.1133
Topheth12 has long been prepared; it has been made ready for the king. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with an abundance of fire and wood; the breath13 of the LORD, like a stream of burning sulfur,14 sets it ablaze.15
