For You have shattered their burdensome yoke and the rod on their shoulders, the staff of their oppressor, just as [You did] on the day of Midian.
I will break Assyria in My land; I will tread him down on My mountain. Then his yoke will be taken from them, and his burden will be removed from their shoulders.
In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria attacked all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them.
So Hezekiah king of Judah sent word to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, "I have done wrong. Withdraw from me. Whatever you demand from me, I will pay." The king of Assyria demanded from King Hezekiah of Judah 11 tons of silver and one ton of gold.
Whatever you plot against the Lord, He will bring [it] to complete destruction; oppression will not rise up a second time.
For they will be consumed like entangled thorns, like a drunkard's drink, and like straw that is fully dry.
One has gone out from Nineveh, who plots evil against the LORD, and is a wicked counselor.
This is what the LORD says: Though they are strong and numerous, they will still be mowed down, and he will pass away. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no longer.
For I will now break off his yoke from you and tear off your shackles.
I will defend this city and rescue it, because of Me and because of My servant David.'"
Mountains of Gilboa, let no dew or rain be on you, or fields of offerings, for there the shield of the mighty was defiled-- the shield of Saul, no longer anointed with oil.
Why do the nations rebel and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the LORD and His Anointed One:
"Let us tear off their chains and free ourselves from their restraints."
Now I know that the LORD gives victory to His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with mighty victories from His right hand.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you, more than your companions, with the oil of joy.
Consider our shield, God; look on the face of Your anointed one.
I have found David My servant; I have anointed him with My sacred oil.
My hand will always be with him, and My arm will strengthen him.
The enemy will not afflict him; no wicked man will oppress him.
I will crush his foes before him and strike those who hate him.
My faithfulness and love will be with him, and through My name his horn will be exalted.
I will extend his power to the sea and his right hand to the rivers.
He will call to Me, 'You are my Father, my God, the rock of my salvation.'
I will also make him My firstborn, greatest of the kings of the earth.
I will always preserve My faithful love for him, and My covenant with him will endure.
I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as heaven lasts.
If his sons forsake My instruction and do not live by My ordinances,
if they dishonor My statutes and do not keep My commandments,
then I will call their rebellion to account with the rod, their sin with blows.
But I will not withdraw My faithful love from him or betray My faithfulness.
I will not violate My covenant or change what My lips have said.
Once and for all I have sworn an oath by My holiness; I will not lie to David.
His offspring will continue forever, his throne like the sun before Me,
like the moon, established forever, a faithful witness in the sky." Selah
But You have spurned and rejected him; You have become enraged with Your anointed.
You have repudiated the covenant with Your servant; You have completely dishonored his crown.
You have broken down all his walls; You have reduced his fortified cities to ruins.
All who pass by plunder him; he has become a joke to his neighbors.
You have lifted high the right hand of his foes; You have made all his enemies rejoice.
You have also turned back his sharp sword and have not let him stand in battle.
You have made his splendor cease and have overturned his throne.
You have shortened the days of his youth; You have covered him with shame. Selah
How long, LORD? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your anger keep burning like fire?
Remember how short my life is. Have You created everyone for nothing?
What man can live and never see death? Who can save himself from the power of Sheol? Selah
Lord, where are the former acts of Your faithful love that You swore to David in Your faithfulness?
Remember, Lord, the ridicule against Your servants-- in my heart I carry [abuse] from all the peoples--
how Your enemies have ridiculed, LORD, how they have ridiculed every step of Your anointed.
May the LORD be praised forever. Amen and amen.
"Do not touch My anointed ones, or harm My prophets."
Because of Your servant David, do not reject Your anointed one.
There I will make a horn grow for David; I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.
I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown he wears will be glorious."
Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city-- to bring the rebellion to an end, to put a stop to sin, to wipe away injustice, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy place.
Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince will be seven weeks and 62 weeks. It will be rebuilt with a plaza and a moat, but in difficult times.
After those 62 weeks the Messiah will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the coming prince will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come with a flood, and until the end there will be war; desolations are decreed.
The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed,
He first found his own brother Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which means "Anointed One"),
"For, in fact, in this city both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, assembled together against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed,
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge.
The anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you don't need anyone to teach you. Instead, His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie; just as it has taught you, remain in Him.
