Nahum 2:1-6 MSG

1 he juggernaut's coming! Post guards, lay in supplies. Get yourselves together, get ready for the big battle.
2 God has restored the Pride of Jacob, the Pride of Israel. Israel's lived through hard times. He's been to hell and back.
3 Weapons flash in the sun, the soldiers splendid in battle dress, Chariots burnished and glistening, ready to charge, A spiked forest of brandished spears, lethal on the horizon.
4 The chariots pour into the streets. They fill the public squares, Flaming like torches in the sun, like lightning darting and flashing.
5 The Assyrian king rallies his men, but they stagger and stumble. They run to the ramparts to stem the tide, but it's too late.
6 Soldiers pour through the gates. The palace is demolished.
