Nahum

NAHUM.  Na.1.1

1An oracle concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum of Elkosh.

The LORD's anger against Nineveh.  Na.1.2-15

2Yahweh is a jealous God and avenging,
Yahweh is avenging and wrathful;
Yahweh takes vengeance on his adversaries
and keeps wrath for his enemies.
3Yahweh is slow to anger and of great might,
and Yahweh will by no means clear the guilty.
His way is in whirlwind and storm,
and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4He rebukes the sea and makes it dry,
he dries up all the rivers;
Bashan and Carmel wither,
the bloom of Lebanon fades.
5The mountains quake before him,
the hills melt;
the earth is laid waste before him,
the world and all that dwell therein.

6Who can stand before his indignation?
Who can endure the heat of his anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire,
and the rocks are broken asunder by him.
7Yahweh is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.
8But with an overflowing flood
he will make a full end of his adversaries,
and will pursue his enemies into darkness.
9What do you plot against Yahweh?
He will make a full end;
he will not take vengeance twice on his foes.
10Like entangled thorns
they are consumed,
like dry stubble.
11Did one not come out from you,
who plotted evil against Yahweh,
and counseled villainy?

12Thus says Yahweh,
"Though they be strong and many,
they will be cut off and pass away.
Though I have afflicted you,
I will afflict you no more.
13And now I will break his yoke from off you
and will burst your bonds asunder."

14Yahweh has given commandment about you:
"No more shall your name be perpetuated;
from the house of your gods
I will cut off the graven image
and the molten image.
I will make your grave,
for you are vile."

15Behold, on the mountains the feet of him
who brings good tidings,
who proclaims peace!
Keep your feast, O Judah,
fulfil your vows,
for never again shall the wicked come against you,
he is utterly cut off.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
