Nahum 2 ©
The fearful and victorious armies of God against Nineveh.
bFor the LORD hath turned away 2the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for cthe emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their dvine branches.
fThe chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: 5they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be 8dissolved.
Behold, qI am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and rI will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off sthy prey from the earth, and tthe voice of uthy messengers shall no more be heard.
