Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:4 -

like entangled thorns,

like the drink of a drunkard

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.
