God will Break Assyria in Judah
"The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, "Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, And as I have purposed, so it shall stand: That I will break the Assyrian in My land, And on My mountains tread him underfoot. Then his yoke shall be removed from them, And his burden removed from their shoulders." Isaiah 14:24-25

25. That--My purpose, namely, "that."
break . . . yoke-- (Isa 10:27).
