Isaiah 30 The Septuagint (LXX)

When Israel fell back into Musical Idolatry at Mount sinai, god turned them over to worship "the starry host." Later, when the elders fired God and demanded a king like the nations so that they could worship like the nations, the full meaning of worshiping the demons under Remphan or Chiun in Israel and Molech in Jerusalem.

Most of the "going in musical procession to Jerusalem" was really to worship Molech with burning babies and lound instrumental music. Therefore, since Israel, Assyrian and Egypt were all participating in essentially the same form of worship. God "sings" a song to define how the firs of judgment break out to "fit the crime."

It is clear that the "all time" and therefore end-time judgment of God is against those who refuse to simply give heed to Him by giving heed to His word is to the beat of musical instruments. It comes as no surprise that as Assyrian was destroyed, Israel would be destroyed. This avenging fire finally destroyed the nation of Israel fit the crime because John wrote:

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Re.11:8
