Nahum 3 ©
The miserable ruin of Nineveh.
rYet was she carried away, she went into captivity: sher young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they tcast lots for her honourable men, and all her great men were ubound in chains.
Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.
Thy ishepherds slumber, O jking of Assyria: thy 6nobles shall kdwell in the dust : thy people is lscattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them.
There is mno 7healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear nthe *bruit of thee shall oclap the hands over thee: for pupon whom hath not qthy wickedness passed continually?
