“On that day,
Yahweh will shave
With a razor
Hired beyond the River,
The king of Assyria.
It will shave the head.
It will shave the hair of the feet,
It will take off the beard as well.”
On this day to come, Yahweh was going to let the king of Assyria, from beyond the Euphrates River, come and attack. He would act like Yahweh’s razor, shaving the head and the feet, and even the beards as well.
