Assyria will be Punished by God
27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from afar, Burning with His anger, And His burden is heavy; His lips are full of indignation, And His tongue like a devouring fire.
28 His breath is like an overflowing stream, Which reaches up to the neck, To sift the nations with the sieve of futility; And there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, Causing them to err.
29 You shall have a song As in the night when a holy festival is kept, And gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute, To come into the mountain of the LORD, To the Mighty One of Israel.
30 The LORD will cause His glorious voice to be heard, And show the descent of His arm, With the indignation of His anger And the flame of a devouring fire, With scattering, tempest, and hailstones.
31 For through the voice of the LORD Assyria will be beaten down, As He strikes with the rod.
32 And in every place where the staff of punishment passes, Which the LORD lays on him, It will be with tambourines and harps; And in battles of brandishing He will fight with it.
33 For Tophet was established of old, Yes, for the king it is prepared. He has made it deep and large; Its pyre is fire with much wood; The breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, Kindles it.
? Isaiah uses powerful words to describe the terrifying judgement brought upon the world and upon Sennacherib?s army.
? The Assyrian Empire was destroyed around 100 years later (607 B.C.) and passed into history.
? There will be singing of praise when God destroys Assyria.
? The punishment of the wicked will be Tophet, the place in the Hinnom Valley that was used as a furnace of sacrifice to the god Moloch at one time and became a symbol of eternal hellfire where the fire was not quenched.

"Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My
indignation. I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the
people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the
prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets. Yet he does not
mean so, Nor does his heart think so; But it is in his heart to destroy, And
cut off not a few nations." - Isaiah 10:5-7
