In that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more lean on him who struck them, but will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God. For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness. For the Lord GOD of hosts will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.
Isaiah 10:20-23
first, a bit of inclusio

...5-19 Assyria the proud judged
......20-27 Israel the remnant returned
...28-34 Assyria the proud judged

next, a few bits
  • Being in the center of God's will does not equal blessing
  • Being the recipient of God's wrath does not equal rejection
  • God uses whomever he pleases
  • God's justice will prevail
  • God's promises are kept
