About Assyria The Lord says:
5 «Woe to Assyria, the rod of my anger!
The stick of my anger is in your hand!
6 What shipping against a godless nation,
command against a people it infuriates me,
to plunder and strip,
to trample them down like mud in the streets.
7 But this is not what proposed Assyria;
Did not even think!
Only seeks to destroy
and annihilate many nations.
Woe to the city bloodthirsty
full of lies,
insatiable in their prey,
clinging to the dam! Nahum 3.1, NIV.
All they know what happened to you,
hold your misfortune.
For who was not a victim
of your constant iniquity? Nahum 3.19B, NIV.
16 Therefore the Lord sent,
the LORD Almighty,
a devastating disease
upon his sturdy warriors.
Instead of honoring them, set them ablaze,
a fire like flame.
17 The light of Israel will become a fire;
the * Holy One a flame.
In one day devour its thorns
and consume his thorns.
18 destroy from end to end
the splendor of its forests and its gardens,
as sick riddled with plague.
19 So few trees remain in their forest
that a child may write them.
Summons the King of Nineveh to his chosen people,
that jostle career.
Was launched against the wall
to lift the barricade,
6 But the floodgates open rivers
and the palace collapses.
7 It's decided:
the city [to] be taken into exile.
Her maids moan like doves,
and beat their chests.
8 Nineveh is like a broken tank
whose waters spilled.
'Stop!' "Stop!" Shout,
but no one turns back.
9 Plunder the silver!
Plunder the gold!
The treasure is inexhaustible,
and abundance of wealth and precious objects.
10 Destruction, desolation, devastation!
The * faint hearts
pale faces. Nahum 2.5 - 10, NIV.
