ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_23 10:16-19
16
Therefore the Lord God of Hosts will inflict an emaciating disease on the well-fed of Assyria, and He will kindle a burning fire under its glory.
17
Israel's Light will become a fire, and its Holy One, a flame. In one day it will burn up Assyria's thorns and thistles.
18
He will completely destroy the glory of its forests and orchards as a sickness consumes a person.
19
The remaining trees of its forest will be so few in number that a child could count them.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_23 37:24-36
24
You have mocked the LORD through your servants. You have said: With my many chariots I have gone up to the heights of the mountains, to the far recesses of Lebanon. I cut down its tallest cedars, its choice cypress trees. I came to its remotest heights, its densest forest.
25
I dug [wells] and drank water. I dried up all the streams of Egypt with the soles of my feet.
26
Have you not heard? I designed it long ago; I planned it in days gone by. I have now brought it to pass, and you have crushed fortified cities into piles of rubble.
27
Their inhabitants have become powerless, dismayed, and ashamed. They are plants of the field, tender grass, grass on the rooftops, blasted by the east wind.
28
But I know your sitting down, your going out and your coming in, and your raging against Me.
29
Because your raging against Me and your arrogance has reached My ears, I will put My hook in your nose and My bit in your mouth; I will make you go back the way you came.
30
" 'This will be the sign for you: This year you will eat what grows on its own, and in the second year what grows from that. But in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
31
The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward.
32
For a remnant will go out from Jerusalem, and survivors from Mount Zion. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.'
33
" 'Therefore, this is what the LORD says about the king of Assyria: He will not enter this city or shoot an arrow there or come before it with a shield or build up an assault ramp against it.
34
He will go back on the road that he came and he will not enter this city. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
35
I will defend this city and rescue it, because of Me and because of My servant David.'"
36
Then the angel of the LORD went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. When the people got up the [next] morning-- there were all the dead bodies!

21
This is the word the LORD has spoken against him: The young woman, Daughter Zion, despises you and scorns you: Daughter Jerusalem shakes [her] head behind your back.
22
Who is it you mocked and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised [your] voice and lifted your eyes in pride? Against the Holy One of Israel!
23
You have mocked the Lord through your messengers. You have said: With my many chariots I have gone up to the heights of the mountains, to the far recesses of Lebanon. I cut down its tallest cedars, its choice cypress trees. I came to its farthest outpost, its densest forest.
24
I dug [wells], and I drank foreign waters. I dried up all the streams of Egypt with the soles of my feet.
25

Therefore, this is what the LORD says about the king of Assyria: He will not enter this city or shoot an arrow there or come before it with a shield or build up an assault ramp against it.
33
He will go back on the road that he came and he will not enter this city, declares the LORD.
34
I will defend this city and rescue it for My sake and for the sake of My servant David.
35
That night the angel of the LORD went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. When the people got up the [next] morning-- there were all the dead bodies!

Human pride will be humbled, and the loftiness of men will be brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted on that day.
12
For a day belonging to the LORD of Hosts is [coming] against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up-- it will be humbled--
13
against all the cedars of Lebanon, lofty and lifted up, against all the oaks of Bashan,

against every ship of Tarshish, and against every splendid sea vessel.
