Isaiah 10:25

For yet a very little while
Within a few days; for in a very short time after Sennacherib was come up against Jerusalem his army was destroyed by an angel: and the indignation shall cease;
the indignation of the Lord against his people Israel, shown by bringing the Assyrian monarch against them, of which he was the staff or instrument, ( Isaiah 10:5 ) : and mine anger in their destruction;

``for yet a very little while, and the curses shall cease from you of the house of Jacob; and mine anger shall be upon the people that work iniquity, to destroy them;''
that is, the Assyrians.
