Nahum 1

1
1 # See Isa. 13:1 An oracle concerning #ch. 2:8; 3:7; See Jonah 1:2Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum of Elkosh.
God’s Wrath Against Nineveh
2 # See Ex. 20:5 The Lord is a jealous and avenging God;
the Lord is avenging and wrathful;
# [Ps. 92:9] the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries
and #[Ps. 103:9]keeps wrath for his enemies.
3 # See Ex. 34:6 The Lord is slow to anger and #Job 9:4; Ps. 147:5 great in power,
and #See Ex. 34:7 the Lord will by no means clear the guilty.
# [Ps. 97:2]; See Ps. 18:9-13 His way is in whirlwind and storm,
and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 # Ps. 106:9; [Isa. 50:2] He rebukes the sea and makes it dry;
he dries up all the rivers;
# Isa. 33:9 Bashan and #See Josh. 19:26Carmel wither;
the bloom of #Isa. 33:9 Lebanon withers.
5 # [Jer. 4:24; Hab. 3:6] The mountains quake before him;
# Amos 9:13 the hills melt;
the earth heaves before him,
# Ps. 98:7 the world and all who dwell in it.
6 # [Mal. 3:2] Who can stand before his indignation?
Who can endure the heat of his anger?
His wrath #2 Chr. 34:21; [Ps. 79:6] is poured out like fire,
and #Ezek. 38:20the rocks are broken into pieces by him.
7 # Jer. 33:11; See Ps. 100:5 The Lord is good,
# Ps. 46:1; Isa. 25:4 a stronghold in the day of trouble;
# Ps. 1:6; John 10:14, 27; 1 Cor. 8:3; 2 Tim. 2:19 he knows those who take refuge in him.
8But #[Isa. 30:28] with an overflowing flood
he will make a complete end of the adversaries,#1:8 Hebrew of her place
and #Isa. 8:22will pursue his enemies into darkness.
9What #[Isa. 10:7] do you plot against the Lord?
# [Jer. 4:27] He will make a complete end;
trouble will not rise up a second time.
10For they are #See Mic. 7:4 like entangled thorns,
like drunkards as they drink;
# See Joel 2:5 they are consumed like stubble fully dried.
11From you came one
# [ver. 9; 2 Kgs. 19:22, 23] who plotted evil against the Lord,
a worthless counselor.
12Thus says the Lord,
“Though they are at full strength and many,
# Isa. 10:33, 34; [Isa. 37:36] they will be cut down and pass away.
# ver. 9; [Isa. 9:1] Though I have afflicted you,
I will afflict you no more.
13And now #[Isa. 9:4; 10:27; 14:25]I will break his yoke from off you
and will burst your bonds apart.”
14The Lord has given commandment about you:
# [Ps. 109:13] “No more shall your name be perpetuated;
from #[2 Kgs. 19:37] the house of your gods I will cut off
the carved image and the metal image.
# [Isa. 30:33]; See Ezek. 32:21-23 I will make your grave, #[ch. 3:6]for you are vile.”
15 # 1:15 Ch 2:1 in Hebrew #See Isa. 52:7 Behold, upon the mountains, #[Rom. 10:15] the feet of him
who brings good news,
who publishes peace!
# [Isa. 30:29] Keep your feasts, O Judah;
# See Num. 30:2 fulfill your vows,
# [ver. 12]; See Joel 3:17 for never again shall the worthless pass through you;
he is utterly cut off.
