The Root of Jesse (Isaiah 10:20-11:16)

However, Assyria will become prideful and go too far by thinking that their power resides in themselves rather than seeing themselves as instruments in the hand of God. Therefore God will judge Assyria as well. We pick in prophecy in verse 20 of the tenth chapter of Isaiah. Isaiah now describes what the future holds for Israel and Judah.
