The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of Nineveh; he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.
Whatever they plot against the LORDhe will bring to an end; trouble will not come a second time.
They will be entangled among thorns and drunk from their wine; they will be consumed like dry stubble.
From you, Nineveh, has one come forth who plots evil against the LORDand devises wicked plans.
This is what the LORD says: “Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be destroyed and pass away. Although I have afflicted you, Judah, I will afflict you no more.
