The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying,
"Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
And as I have purposed, so it shall y stand: 25 That I will break the z Assyrian in My land,
And on My mountains tread him underfoot.
Then a his yoke shall be removed from them,
And his burden removed from their shoulders.
This is the b purpose that is purposed against the whole earth,
And this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. 27 For the LORD of hosts has c purposed,
And who will annul it?
His hand is stretched out,
And who will turn it back?"
