NASB — Nahum 1 — KJV

God Is Awesome

1 The Iaoracle of bNineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

[1] IOr burden aIs 13:1; 19:1; Jr 23:33, 34; Hab 1:1; Zc 9:1; Mal 1:1 b2K 19:36; Jna 1:2; Na 2:8; Zp 2:13

  2 ¶ A ajealous and avenging God is the LORD;
  The LORD is bavenging and Iwrathful.
  The LORD takes cvengeance on His adversaries,
  And He reserves wrath for His enemies.
  3 The LORD is aslow to anger and great in power,
  And the LORD will by no means leave [the guilty] unpunished.
  In bwhirlwind and storm is His way,
  And cclouds are the dust beneath His feet.
  4 He arebukes the sea and makes it dry;
  He dries up all the rivers.
  bBashan and Carmel wither;
  The blossoms of Lebanon wither.
  5 Mountains aquake because of Him
  And the hills bdissolve;
  Indeed the earth is cupheaved by His presence,
  The dworld and all the inhabitants in it.
  6 aWho can stand before His indignation?
  Who can endure the bburning of His anger?
  His cwrath is poured out like fire
  And the drocks are broken up by Him.
  7 The LORD is agood,
  A stronghold in the day of trouble,
  And bHe knows those who take refuge in Him.
  8 But with an aoverflowing flood
  He will make a complete end of Iits site,
  And will pursue His enemies into bdarkness.

  9 ¶ Whatever you adevise against the LORD,
  He will make a bcomplete end of it.
  Distress will not rise up twice.
  10 Like tangled athorns,
  And like those who are bdrunken with their drink,
  They are cconsumed
  As stubble completely withered.
  11 From you has gone forth
  One who aplotted evil against the LORD,
  A Ibwicked counselor.
12 Thus says the LORD,
  “Though they are at full [strength] and likewise many,
  Even so, they will be acut off and pass away.
  Though I have afflicted you,
  I will afflict you bno longer.
  13 “So now, I will abreak his yoke bar from upon you,
  And I will tear off your shackles.”

The majesty of God in goodness to his people, and severity against his enemies.

1 ¶ The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite. 2 God [is] jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and [is] furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth [wrath] for his enemies. 3 The LORD [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit [the wicked]: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of his feet. 4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. 5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. 6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. 7 The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. 8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies. 9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time. 10 For while [they be] folden together [as] thorns, and while they are drunken [as] drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry. 11 There is [one] come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the LORD, a wicked counsellor. 12 Thus saith the LORD; Though [they be] quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more. 13 For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder. 14 And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee, [that] no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile. 15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.
