24 The Lord of hosts has sworn:
q“As I have planned,
so shall it be,
and as I have purposed,
so shall it stand,
25 that rI will break the Assyrian in my land,
and on my mountains trample him underfoot;
and shis yoke shall depart from them,
and shis burden from their shoulder.”
concerning the whole earth,
and this is tthe hand that is stretched out
over all the nations.
27 uFor the Lord of hosts has purposed,
and who will annul it?
tHis hand is stretched out,
and who will turn it back?
