Nahum 1:15-2:9


15 *Look! On the mountains the feet of one
   who brings good tidings,
   who proclaims peace!
Celebrate your festivals, O Judah,
   fulfil your vows,
for never again shall the wicked invade you;
   they are utterly cut off.

The Destruction of the Wicked City

2A shatterer* has come up against you.
   Guard the ramparts;
   watch the road;
gird your loins;
   collect all your strength.


2 (For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob,
   as well as the majesty of Israel,
though ravagers have ravaged them
   and ruined their branches.)


3 The shields of his warriors are red;
   his soldiers are clothed in crimson.
The metal on the chariots flashes
   on the day when he musters them;
   the chargers* prance.
4 The chariots race madly through the streets,
   they rush to and fro through the squares;
their appearance is like torches,
   they dart like lightning.
5 He calls his officers;
   they stumble as they come forward;
they hasten to the wall,
   and the mantelet* is set up.
6 The river gates are opened,
   the palace trembles.
7 It is decreed* that the city* be exiled,
   its slave women led away,
moaning like doves
   and beating their breasts.
8 Nineveh is like a pool
   whose waters* run away.
‘Halt! Halt!’—
   but no one turns back.
9 ‘Plunder the silver,
   plunder the gold!
There is no end of treasure!
   An abundance of every precious thing!’
