|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 But Assyria has another agenda; he has something else in mind. He's out to destroy utterly, to stamp out as many nations as he can.
7 But this is not what he intends, this is not what he has in mind; his purpose is to destroy, to put an end to many nations.
