New International Version
But this is not what he intends, this is not what he has in mind; his purpose is to destroy, to put an end to many nations.
King James Bible
Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.
Darby Bible Translation
But he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; for it is in his heart to extirpate and cut off nations not a few.
World English Bible
However he doesn't mean so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy, and to cut off not a few nations.
Young's Literal Translation
And he -- he thinketh not so, And his heart reckoneth not so, For -- to destroy is in his heart, And to cut off nations not a few.

Archbishop Secker was not satisfied with the present reading. He proposes another method of clearing up the sense, by reading ביום beyom, in the day, instead of בידם beyadam, in their hand: "And he is a staff in the day of mine indignation."

Are not my commanders all kings?' he says.
Look at the land of the Babylonians, this people that is now of no account! The Assyrians have made it a place for desert creatures; they raised up their siege towers, they stripped its fortresses bare and turned it into a ruin.
I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign LORD.
