Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nahum 1:15

_ _ This verse is joined in the Hebrew text to the second chapter. It is nearly the same as Isaiah 52:7, referring to the similar deliverance from Babylon.

_ _ him that bringeth good tidings — announcing the overthrow of Sennacherib and deliverance of Jerusalem. The “mountains” are those round Jerusalem, on which Sennacherib’s host had so lately encamped, preventing Judah from keeping her “feasts,” but on which messengers now speed to Jerusalem, publishing his overthrow with a loud voice where lately they durst not have opened their mouths. A type of the far more glorious spiritual deliverance of God’s people from Satan by Messiah, heralded by ministers of the Gospel (Romans 10:15).

_ _ perform thy vows — which thou didst promise if God would deliver thee from the Assyrian.

_ _ the wicked — literally, “Belial”; the same as the “counsellor of Belial” (Nahum 1:11, Margin); namely, Sennacherib.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 1:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nahum 1:15

Keep — Be careful to serve God. Thy vows — Made in thy distress. The wicked — That wicked oppressor, Sennacherib.
