    1 Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.
    Isaiah 33:1 (KJV)

    1 Doom to you, Destroyer, not yet destroyed; And doom to you, Betrayer, not yet betrayed. When you finish destroying, your turn will come—destroyed! When you quit betraying, your turn will come—betrayed! Isaiah 33:1 (MSG)

    1 Woe to you, O destroyer, you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, O traitor, you who have not been betrayed! When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed; when you stop betraying, you will be betrayed. Isaiah 33:1 (NIV)

    1 What sorrow awaits you Assyrians, who have destroyed others but have never been destroyed yourselves. You betray others, but you have never been betrayed. When you are done destroying, you will be destroyed. When you are done betraying, you will be betrayed. Isaiah 33:1 (NLT)

    The context speaks of the Assyrians. I thought it may have a double meaning and also refer to Satan. I checked some commentaries (J. Vernon McGee, King James Study Bible) and they say it refers to the anti-Christ.

    What do you think?
