Nahum 3:1-9 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 Ah! City of bloodshed, utterly deceitful, full of booty— no end to the plunder! 2 The crack of whip and rumble of wheel, galloping horse and bounding chariot! 3 Horsemen charging, flashing sword and glittering spear, piles of dead, heaps of corpses, dead bodies without end— they stumble over the bodies! 4 Because of the countless debaucheries of the prostitute, gracefully alluring, mistress of sorcery, who enslaves a nations through her debaucheries, and peoples through her sorcery, 5 I am against you, says the Lord of hosts, and will lift up your skirts over your face; and I will let nations look on your nakedness and kingdoms on your shame. 6 I will throw filth at you and treat you with contempt, and make you a spectacle. 7 Then all who see you will shrink from you and say, "Nineveh is devastated; who will bemoan her?" Where shall I seek comforters for you? 8 Are you better than Thebes b that sat by the Nile, with water around her, her rampart a sea, water her wall? 9 Ethiopia c was her strength, Egypt too, and that without limit; Put and the Libyans were her d helpers.
