Nahum 1:9-14 NLT
Why are you scheming against the LORD?
He will destroy you with one blow;
he won’t need to strike twice!
His enemies, tangled like thornbushes
and staggering like drunks,
will be burned up like dry stubble in a field.
Who is this wicked counselor of yours
who plots evil against the LORD?
This is what the LORD says:
“Though the Assyrians have many allies,
they will be destroyed and disappear.
O my people, I have punished you before,
but I will not punish you again.
Now I will break the yoke of bondage from your neck
and tear off the chains of Assyrian oppression.”
And this is what the LORD says concerning the Assyrians in Nineveh:
“You will have no more children to carry on your name.
I will destroy all the idols in the temples of your gods.
I am preparing a grave for you
because you are despicable!”
