“Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.”
Behold, I will put a spirit in him so that he will hear a rumor and return to his own land. And I will make him fall by the sword in his own land.”’”
‘Because of your raging against Me, And because your arrogance has come up to My ears, Therefore I will put My hook in your nose, And My bridle in your lips, And I will turn you back by the way which you came.
By the way that he came, by the same he will return, and he shall not come to this city,”’ declares the Lord.
From that land he went forth into Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah,
“Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and proclaim to it the proclamation which I am going to tell you.”
The oracle of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
Though Nineveh was like a pool of water throughout her days, Now they are fleeing; “Stop, stop,” But no one turns back.
The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
