Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:1 - The oracle against Nineveh; the book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite:

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:2 - The LORD is a zealous and avenging God; the LORD is avenging and very angry. The LORD takes vengeance against his foes; he sustains his rage against his enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:3 - The LORD is slow to anger but great in power; the LORD will certainly not allow the wicked to go unpunished. He marches out in the whirlwind and the raging storm; dark storm clouds billow like dust under his feet.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:4 - He shouts a battle cry against the sea and makes it dry up; he makes all the rivers run dry. Bashan and Carmel wither; the blossom of Lebanon withers.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:5 - The mountains tremble before him, the hills convulse; the earth is laid waste before him, the world and all its inhabitants are laid waste.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:6 - No one can withstand his indignation! No one can resist his fierce anger! His wrath is poured out like volcanic fire, boulders are broken up as he approaches.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:7 - The LORD is good - indeed, he is a fortress in time of distress, and he protects those who seek refuge in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:8 - But with an overwhelming flood he will make a complete end of Nineveh; he will drive his enemies into darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:9 - Whatever you plot against the LORD, he will completely destroy! Distress will not arise a second time.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:10 - Surely they will be totally consumed like entangled thorn bushes, like the drink of drunkards, like very dry stubble.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:11 - From you, O Nineveh, one has marched forth who plots evil against the LORD, a wicked military strategist.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:12 - This is what the LORD says: "Even though they are powerful - and what is more, even though their army is numerous - nevertheless, they will be destroyed and trickle away! Although I afflicted you, I will afflict you no more.

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:13 - And now, I will break Assyria's yoke bar from your neck; I will tear apart the shackles that are on you."

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:14 - The LORD has issued a decree against you: "Your dynasty will come to an end. I will destroy the idols and images in the temples of your gods. I will desecrate your grave - because you are accursed!"

Unchecked Copy BoxNah 1:15 - (2:1) Look! A herald is running on the mountains! A messenger is proclaiming deliverance: "Celebrate your sacred festivals, O Judah! Fulfill your sacred vows to praise God! For never again will the wicked Assyrians invade you, they have been completely destroyed."
