God's Vengeance

2 The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord takes vengeance and is fierce ina wrath. The Lord takes vengeance against His foes; He is furious with His enemies.b
3 The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will never leave [the guilty] unpunished. His path is in the whirlwind and storm,c and clouds are the dust beneath His feet.
4 He rebukes the sea so that it dries up, and He makes all the rivers run dry.d Bashan and Carmel wither;e even the flower of Lebanon withers.
5 The mountains quake before Him, and the hills melt; the earth tremblesfg at His presence- the world and all who live in it.h
6 Who can withstand His indignation? Who can endure His burning anger?i His wrath is poured out like fire, even rocks are shattered before Him.

Destruction of Nineveh

7 The Lord is good, a stronghold in a day of distress; He cares for those who take refuge in Him.j
8 But He will completely destroy Ninevehk with an overwhelming flood, and He will chase His enemies into darkness.
