Verse: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
B. A vision of the destruction of Nineveh 2:1-13
Nahum 2 :1 2:1 1He who ascatters has come up before you:
Keep the fortress,
Watch the way,
Strengthen the loins,
Fortify the power greatly.
Nahum 2 :2 2:2 For Jehovah restores
The excellency of Jacob
As the excellency of Israel;
For the emptiers have emptied them out
And destroyed their avine branches.
Nahum 2 :3 2:3 The shield of His mighty men is red;
The valiant men are clad in scarlet;
The chariots flash with the shining of steel
In the day of His preparation,
And the spears are brandished.
Nahum 2 :4 2:4 In the streets the chariots rush madly;
They dash to and fro in the open squares;
Their appearance is like that of torches;
They dart like lightning.
Nahum 2 :5 2:5 1The Assyrian king remembers his glorious ones:
They stumble in their march;
They hasten to the wall 2of the city,
But the besiegers’ shelter is prepared.
Nahum 2 :6 2:6 The 1gates of the rivers are opened,
And the palace is dissolved.
Nahum 2 :7 2:7 And it is determined: 1She is uncovered; she is carried away;
And her maidens moan,
As with the sound of doves,
Beating their breasts.
Nahum 2 :8 2:8 Though Nineveh has been like a pool of water all her days,
Now they are fleeing.
Stand! Stand! But no one turns back.
Nahum 2 :9 2:9 Plunder the silver! Plunder the gold!
And there is no end to what has been prepared.
Oh, the glory of all the desirable vessels!
Nahum 2 :10 2:10 Emptiness and void and waste!
And the heart melts, and the knees knock,
And aanguish is in all the loins,
And the faces of all of them become pale.
Nahum 2 :11 2:11 Where is the den of lions
And the feeding place of young lions,
Where the lion and the lioness walked,
And the lion’s whelp; and no one frightened them?
Nahum 2 :12 2:12 The lion tore in pieces, enough for his whelps,
And strangled for his lioness
And filled his caves with torn prey
And his dens with torn animals.
Nahum 2 :13 2:13 Indeed I am against you,
Declares Jehovah of hosts;
And I will burn 1your chariots in smoke,
And the sword will devour your young lions;
And I will cut off your prey from the earth;
And the voice of your messengers will no longer be heard.
