1:1An oracle concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum of Elkosh.
14The LORD has commanded concerning you:
“Your name shall be perpetuated no longer;
from the house of your gods I will cut off
the carved image and the cast image.
I will make your grave, for you are worthless.”
15 Look! On the mountains the feet of one
who brings good tidings,
who proclaims peace!
Celebrate your festivals, O Judah,
fulfill your vows,
for never again shall the wicked invade you;
they are utterly cut off.
2:1A shatterer has come up against you.
Guard the ramparts;
watch the road;
gird your loins;
collect all your strength.
2(For the LORD is restoring the majesty of Jacob,
as well as the majesty of Israel,
though ravagers have ravaged them
and ruined their branches.)
