Here again is hope!  This verse is a clear prophecy of Messiah. The last verse in Chapter 10 describes the complete destruction of the Assyrian army. It is cut down  like trees are felled by an ax.  Although Israel, too had been cut down by Assyria,  there shall come forth:

A rod:   this is a shoot, or the stock that remains in the earth after a tree has been cut down. Image result for a shoot growing from a stump

Out of the stem of Jesse:  Jesse  was David’s father. The dynasty from this family, of the tribe of Judah, would thrive and grow in spite of the efforts of Assyria and Antichrist.

A Branch:  Jesus Christ is the Branch that would appear, born in the line of David, the tribe of Judah, the line of Jesse.

For further study:  Is. 11:1-12:6; Matthew 1; Luke 3.
