And he will be their peace.1 When the Assyrian invades2 our land and marches through our fortresses, we will raise against him seven shepherds, even eight leaders of men.3
They will rule the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod4 with drawn sword.5 He will deliver us from the Assyrian when he invades our land and marches into our borders.6
