until Asshur shall carry thee away captive
Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.
Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.
