Nahum 3:9-19 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
9 Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was infinite ; Put and Lubim were thy helpers.a 10 Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity: her young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they cast lots for her honourable men , and all her great men were bound in chains. 11 Thou also shalt be drunken : thou shalt be hid , thou also shalt seek strength because of the enemy . 12 All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the firstripe figs: if they be shaken , they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater . 13 Behold, thy people in the midst of thee are women: the gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies : the fire shall devour thy bars. 14 Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds: go into clay, and tread the morter, make strong the brickkiln. 15 There shall the fire devour thee; the sword shall cut thee off , it shall eat thee up like the cankerworm: make thyself many as the cankerworm, make thyself many as the locusts. 16 Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of heaven: the cankerworm spoileth ,b and flieth away . 17 Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away , and their place is not known where they are. 18 Thy shepherds slumber , O king of Assyria: thy noblesc shall dwell in the dust: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them. 19 There is no healingd of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous : all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
