My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Nahum 2

Sucks to be Nineveh. Or a plugless bath.

Summary:
Nineveh will be attacked, and Israel restored. The city is taken over, and it's guard collapses with the palace. Nineveh will be carried away in exile. If Nineveh was a bath, its plug would be pulled. The city is plundered, the lions are eating you, and God is against you.

Key verse:
13. "I am against you,"
declares the Lord Almighty.

My thoughts:
Ooh... burn... That's a nasty sentence to be issued! Be aware that Nineveh was a massive city at the time, and declaring its downfall was a massive call.
