(7) But the king of Assyria will not understand that he is My tool; his mind does not work that way. His plan is simply to destroy, to cut down nation after nation.

(8) He will say, 'Each of my princes will soon be a king.

(9) We destroyed Calno just as we did Carchemish. Hamath fell before us as Arpad did. And we destroyed Samaria just as we did Damascus.

(13) calamity will come upon you suddenly—like a bulging wall that bursts and falls. In an instant it will collapse and come crashing down.
