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.

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.
