1The burden of Nineveh [abode of Ninus, or Offspring’s Habitation]. The book of the vision of Nachum [comfort] the Elkoshi [God is ensnarer].
2God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] jealous, and the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) revenges; the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) revenges, and [is] furious; the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserves [wrath] for his enemies.
3The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit [the wicked]: the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of his feet.
4He rebukes the sea, and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers: Bashan [Fruitful] languishes, and Carmel [Garden-land], and the flower of L’vanon [Whiteness] languishes.
5The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yes, the world, and all that dwell in it.
6Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
7The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knows them that trust in him.
8But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
9What do you2f imagine against the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate)? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
10For while [they be] folded together [as] thorns, and while they are drunken [as] drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.
11There is [one] come out of youi, that imagines evil against the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), a wicked counselor.
12Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); Though [they be] quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted youi, I will afflict youi no more.
13For now will I break his yoke from off youi, and will burst youri bonds in sunder.
14And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has given a commandment concerning youi, [that] no more of youri name be sown: out of the house of youri gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make youri grave; for youi are vile.
15Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that brings good tidings, that proclaims peace! O Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], keep youri solemn feasts, perform youri vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through youi; he is utterly cut off.
