Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO NAHUM 2\\

This chapter gives an account of the destruction of the city of
Nineveh; describes the instruments of it as very terrible and powerful,
and not to be resisted, \\#Na 2:1-4\\. The manner of taking it, the
flight of its inhabitants, and the spoil of its riches and treasures,
\\#Na 2:5-10\\ and the king and the princes thereof, compared to a
lion, and a lion's whelp, are insulted as being without a den or
dwelling place, because of their cruelty and ravening, for which the
Lord was against them, and threatened them with utter ruin, which he
brought upon them, \\#Na 2:11-13\\.
