Nahum 2:1-6 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

Nineveh to Fall

1 An attacker1 advances against you, [Nineveh]. Guard the fortress, watch the road, brace yourselves, marshal all your strength! 2 The LORD will restore2 the splendor3 of Jacob like the splendor of Israel, though destroyers have laid them waste and have ruined their vines. 3 The shields of his soldiers are red; the warriors are clad in scarlet.4 The metal on the chariots flashes on the day they are made ready; the spears of pine are brandished.a 4 The chariots5 storm through the streets, rushing back and forth through the squares. They look like flaming torches; they dart about like lightning. 5 He summons his picked troops, yet they stumble6 on their way. They dash to the city wall; the protective shield is put in place. 6 The river gates7 are thrown open and the palace collapses.
