The Remnant of Israel Will Return

Isaiah 10

20 g In that day h the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more i lean on him who struck them, but j will lean on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. 21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, k to the mighty God. 22 l For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, m only a remnant of them will return. n Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness. 23 For the Lord God of hosts will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.

24 Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: "O my people, o who dwell in Zion, p be not afraid of the Assyrians when they strike with the rod and lift up their staff against you as q the Egyptians did. 25 For r in a very little while my fury will come to an end, and my anger will be directed to their destruction. 26 And s the Lord of hosts will wield against them a whip, as when he struck t Midian u at the rock of Oreb. And his staff will be over the sea, and he will lift it v as he did in Egypt. 27 And in that day w his burden will depart from your shoulder, and x his yoke from your neck; and the yoke will be broken because of the fat." 1

28 He has come to Aiath;
he has passed through y Migron;
at Michmash he stores z his baggage;
29 they have crossed over a the pass;
at b Geba they lodge for the night;
c Ramah trembles;
d Gibeah of Saul has fled.
30 Cry aloud, O daughter of e Gallim!
Give attention, O Laishah!
O poor f Anathoth!
31 Madmenah is in flight;
the inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety.
32 This very day he will halt at g Nob;
he will shake his fist
at the mount of h the daughter of Zion,
the hill of Jerusalem.

33 Behold, the Lord God of hosts
i will lop j the boughs with terrifying power;
the great in height will be hewn down,
and the lofty will be brought low.
34 He will cut down j the thickets of the forest with an axe,
and k Lebanon will fall by the Majestic One.
