Nahum 2

CEB 1 A scatterer has come up against you. Guard the ramparts, watch the road, protect your groin, save your strength! NIV 1 An attacker advances against you, Nineveh. Guard the fortress, watch the road, brace yourselves, marshal all your strength! CEB 2 The LORD will restore the pride of Jacob, indeed, the pride of Israel, because ravagers have destroyed them and spoiled their branches. NIV 2 The LORD will restore the splendor of Jacob like the splendor of Israel, though destroyers have laid them waste and have ruined their vines. CEB 3 The shields of his warriors are red; his soldiers are dressed in crimson. The ironwork of the chariots flashes like fire on the day he has prepared; the horses quiver. NIV 3 The shields of the soldiers are red; the warriors are clad in scarlet. The metal on the chariots flashes on the day they are made ready; the spears of juniper are brandished. CEB 4 The chariots race wildly through the streets; they rush back and forth through the squares. They look like flaming torches; they dart like bolts of lightning. NIV 4 The chariots storm through the streets, rushing back and forth through the squares. They look like flaming torches; they dart about like lightning. CEB 5 He musters his officers; they stumble as they press forward. They hurry to the city wall, and the portable shield is set up. NIV 5 Nineveh summons her picked troops, yet they stumble on their way. They dash to the city wall; the protective shield is put in place. CEB 6 The gates of the rivers are opened; the palace melts. NIV 6 The river gates are thrown open and the palace collapses. CEB 7 It is decreed: She is sent into exile, carried away, while her female servants moan like doves, beating their breasts. NIV 7 It is decreed that Nineveh be exiled and carried away. Her female slaves moan like doves and beat on their breasts. CEB 8 Nineveh has been like a pool of water. Such are its waters, and others are fleeing. "Stop, stop!"—but no one can turn them back. NIV 8 Nineveh is like a pool whose water is draining away. “Stop! Stop!” they cry, but no one turns back. CEB 9 Plunder silver! Plunder gold! There is no end to the supplies, an abundance of precious objects! NIV 9 Plunder the silver! Plunder the gold! The supply is endless, the wealth from all its treasures! CEB 10 Destruction and devastation; the city is laid waste! The heart grows faint and knees buckle; there is anguish in every groin; all the faces grow pale. NIV 10 She is pillaged, plundered, stripped! Hearts melt, knees give way, bodies tremble, every face grows pale. CEB 11 Where is the lions' den, the meadow of the young lions, where lion, lioness, even lion cub go about with no one to terrify them? NIV 11 Where now is the lions’ den, the place where they fed their young, where the lion and lioness went, and the cubs, with nothing to fear? CEB 12 The lion has torn enough prey for his cubs and strangled enough for his lionesses; he has filled his lairs with prey, his dens with torn flesh. NIV 12 The lion killed enough for his cubs and strangled the prey for his mate, filling his lairs with the kill and his dens with the prey. CEB 13 Look! I am against you, proclaims the LORD of heavenly forces. I will burn your chariots in smoke; the sword will devour your young lions; I will cut off your prey from the earth, the voice of your messengers will never again be heard! NIV 13 “I am against you,” declares the LORD Almighty. “I will burn up your chariots in smoke, and the sword will devour your young lions. I will leave you no prey on the earth. The voices of your messengers will no longer be heard.”
