- "Because this people has rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah and rejoices over Rezin and the son of Remaliah,
- therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the River -- the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks
- and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. Its outspread wings will cover the breadth of your land, O Immanuel !"
- Raise the war cry, you nations, and be shattered! Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered!
- Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.
