A pronouncement on Nineveh: The Book of the Prophecy of Nahum the Elkoshite.

1 2‐The LORD is a passionate, avenging God; The LORD is vengeful and fierce in wrath. The LORD takes vengeance on His enemies, He rages against His foes. 3‐The LORD is slow to anger and of great forbearance, But the LORD does not remit all punishment. He travels in whirlwind and storm, And clouds are the dust on His feet. 4‐He rebukes the sea and dries it up, And He makes all rivers fail; Bashan and Carmel languish, And the blossoms a Lit. “bud.” of Lebanon wither. 5The mountains quake because of Him, And the hills melt. The earth heaves b Meaning of Heb.uncertain. before Him, The world and all that dwell therein. 6Who can stand before His wrath? Who can resist His fury? His anger pours out like fire, And rocks are shattered because of Him. 7The LORD is good to [those who hope in Him], A haven on a day of distress; He is mindful of those who seek refuge in Him. 8And with a sweeping flood He makes an end of c‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain; Emendation yields “those who oppose Him.” her place, ‐c Meaning of Heb. uncertain; Emendation yields “those who oppose Him.” And chases His enemies into darkness. 9Why will you plot against the LORD? He wreaks utter destruction: No adversary a Cf. Ugaritic ṣrt. opposes Him twice! 10 b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. For like men besotted with drink, They are burned up like tangled thorns, Like straw that is thoroughly dried. ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. 11 c Vv. 11–14 would read well after 2.1 . The base plotter Who designed evil against the LORD Has left you. 12Thus said the LORD: b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. “Even as they d I.e., the days of your affliction. were full and many, Even so are they over and gone; As surely as I afflicted you, I will afflict you no more.” ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. 13‐And now I will break off his yoke bar from you And burst your cords apart. 14The LORD has commanded concerning him: e Heb. “you.” b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. No posterity shall continue your name. ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. I will do away with The carved and graven images In the temples of your gods; I will make your grave b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. Accord with your worthlessness. ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain.
