The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.2Goda is jealous, and the LORDrevengeth ; the LORDrevengeth , and is furious ; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies .
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at allacquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.4
He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry , and drieth up all the rivers:Bashanlanguisheth , and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanonlanguisheth .
The mountainsquake at him, and the hillsmelt , and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Who can standbefore his indignation? and who can abideb in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
The LORD is good, a strong holdc in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
