Therefore the Lord GOD of hosts will send wasting sickness among his 1stout warriors, and under his glory 2a burning will be kindled, like the burning of fire.
173The light of Israel will become a fire, and 4his Holy One a flame, and 5it will burn and devour his thorns and briers 6in one day.
The glory of 7his forest and of his 8fruitful land the LORD will destroy, both soul and body, and it will be as when a sick man wastes away.
The remnant of the trees of his forest will be so few that a child can write them down.
209In that day 10the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more 11lean on him who struck them, but 12will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, 13to the mighty God.
2214For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, 15only a remnant of them will return. 16Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.
For the Lord GOD of hosts will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: "O my people, 17who dwell in Zion, 18be not afraid of the Assyrians when they strike with the rod and lift up their staff against you as 19the Egyptians did.
For 20in a very little while my fury will come to an end, and my anger will be directed to their destruction.
And 21the LORD of hosts will wield against them a whip, as when he struck 22Midian 23at the rock of Oreb. And his staff will be over the sea, and he will lift it 24as he did in Egypt.
