Woe to Assyria, the unintentional instrument in the hand of the Lord – it will be punished for its arrogant superiority.
“Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth (chops) therewithin…” (2 Nephi 20:15) Which of course means, Can man Prosper against God? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! Do not be afraid of the Assyrians – the Lord will preserve a remnant of the house of Jacob. Isaiah prophesies attacks on a number of specific Juhan cities. The proud of Judah will be humbled.
