Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:1 -

The pronouncement concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

God’s Vengeance

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:2 -

The Lord is a jealous and avenging God;

the Lord takes vengeance

and is fierce in[fn] wrath.

The Lord takes vengeance against his foes;

he is furious with his enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:3 -

The Lord is slow to anger but great in power;

the Lord will never leave the guilty unpunished.

His path is in the whirlwind and storm,

and clouds are the dust beneath his feet.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:4 -

He rebukes the sea and dries it up,

and he makes all the rivers run dry.

Bashan and Carmel wither;

even the flower of Lebanon withers.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:5 -

The mountains quake before him,

and the hills melt;

the earth trembles[fn][fn] at his presence —

the world and all who live in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:6 -

Who can withstand his indignation?

Who can endure his burning anger?

His wrath is poured out like fire;

even rocks are shattered before him.

Destruction of Nineveh

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:7 -

The Lord is good,

a stronghold in a day of distress;

he cares for those who take refuge in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:8 -

But he will completely destroy Nineveh[fn]

with an overwhelming flood,

and he will chase his enemies into darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:9 -

Whatever you[fn] plot against the Lord,

he will bring it to complete destruction;

oppression will not rise up a second time.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:10 -

For they will be consumed

like entangled thorns,

like the drink of a drunkard

and like straw that is fully dry.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:11 -

One has gone out from you,[fn]

who plots evil against the Lord,

and is a wicked counselor.

Promise of Judah’s Deliverance

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:12 -

This is what the Lord says:

Though they are strong[fn] and numerous,

they will still be mowed down,

and he[fn] will pass away.

Though I have punished you,[fn]

I will punish you no longer.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:13 -

For I will now break off his yoke from you

and tear off your shackles.

The Assyrian King’s Demise

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:14 -

The Lord has issued an order concerning you:

There will be no offspring

to carry on your name.[fn]

I will eliminate the carved idol and cast image

from the house of your gods;

I will prepare your grave,

for you are contemptible.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:15 -

Look to the mountains —

the feet of the herald,

who proclaims peace.

Celebrate your festivals, Judah;

fulfill your vows.

For the wicked one will never again

march through you;

he will be entirely wiped out.
