What to Do When All Seems Lost – Isaiah 14:28-32

14 (28) This oracle came in the year king Ahaz died.

You are melted away, O Philistia—all of you, for a cloud of smoke comes from the north, and there is not one straggler in his ranks. (32) What answer shall be given to the envoys of that nation? They shall declare that Jehovah has established Zion, and in her his afflicted people will find refuge.
