1:1

The Lord judges His enemies


1:1 The burden of Nineve: the Book of the Vision of Naum the Elkesite.

1:2 God is jealous, and the Lord avengeth;
The Lord avengeth with wrath;
The Lord taketh vengeance on His adversaries,
And He cuts off His enemies.

1:3 The Lord is long-suffering,
And His power is great,
And the Lord will not hold any guiltless:
His way is in destruction and in the whirlwind,
And the clouds are the dust of His feet.

1:4 He threatens the sea,
And dries it up,
And exhausts all the rivers:
The land of Basan, and Carmel are brought low,
And the flourishing trees of Libanus have come to nought.

1:5 The mountains quake at Him,
And the hills are shaken,
And the earth recoils at His presence,
Even the world,
And all that dwell in it.

1:6 Who shall stand before His anger?
And who shall withstand in the anger of His wrath?
His wrath bringeth to nought kingdoms,
And the rocks are burst asunder by Him.

1:7 The Lord is good to them that wait on Him in the day of affliction;
And He knoweth them that reverence Him.

1:8 But with an overrunning flood He will make an utter end:
Darkness shall pursue those that rise up against Him and His enemies.

1:9 What do ye devise against the Lord?
He will make a complete end:
He will not take vengeance by affliction twice at the same time.

1:10 For the enemy shall be laid bare even to the foundation,
And shall be devoured as twisted yew,
And as stubble fully dry.

1:11 Out of thee shall proceed a device against the Lord,
Counselling evil things hostile to Him.

1:12 Thus saith the Lord who ruleth over many waters,
"Even thus shall they be sent away,
And the report of thee shall not be heard any more.

1:13 And now will I break his rod from off thee,
And will burst thy bonds."

1:14 And the Lord shall give a command concerning thee;
There shall no more of thy name be scattered:
I will utterly destroy the graven images out of the house of thy god,
And the molten images:
I will make thy grave;
For they are swift.
