The LORD Almighty has sworn,1 "Surely, as I have planned,2 so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.325
I will crush the Assyrian4 in my land; on my mountains I will trample him down. His yoke5 will be taken from my people, and his burden removed from their shoulders.6"
This is the plan7 determined for the whole world; this is the hand8 stretched out over all nations.
For the LORD Almighty has purposed,9 and who can thwart him? His hand10 is stretched out, and who can turn it back?11
