Nahum 3:8

WYC 8 Whether thou art better than Alexandria of peoples, that dwelleth in floods? Waters be in compass thereof, whose riches is the sea, waters be [the] walls thereof. (Art thou any better than Thebes, or No, of the peoples of Egypt, which is set by the river? Water is all around it, and its protection cometh from the sea, yea, the waters be its walls.) NIV 8 Are you better than Thebes, situated on the Nile, with water around her? The river was her defense, the waters her wall.
