Nahum - Prophecies against Nineveh
- 1:1 The oracle against Nineveh;
the book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite:
- 1:8 But with an overwhelming flood
he will make a complete end of Nineveh;
he will drive his enemies into darkness.
- 1:10 Surely they will be totally consumed
like entangled thorn bushes,
like the drink of drunkards,
like very dry stubble.
- 2:6 The sluice gates are opened;
the royal palace is deluged and dissolves.
- 2:8 Nineveh was like a pool of water throughout her days,
but now her people are running away;
she cries out: “Stop! Stop!” —
but no one turns back.
- 3:13 Your warriors will be like women in your midst;
the gates of your land will be wide open to your enemies;
fire will consume the bars of your gates.
