6 I will send him against kan hypocritical nation,
And against the people of my wrath lwill I give him a charge,
mTo take the spoil, and to take the prey,
And †to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7 Howbeit nhe meaneth not so,
Neither doth his heart think so;
But it is in his heart to destroy
And cut off nations not a few.
