'Against' in the Bible

The oracle against Nineveh; the book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite:

Yahweh is a jealous God and avenging; Yahweh is avenging and {full of wrath}. Yahweh takes vengeance against his enemies; he rages against his adversaries.

He is pushing against a sea, and drieth it up, Yea, all the floods He hath made dry, Languishing are Bashan and Carmel, Yea, the flower of Lebanon is languishing.

But like water overflowing he will take them away; he will put an end to those who come up against him, driving his haters into the dark.

Whatever you plot against the Lord, he will completely destroy! Distress will not arise a second time.

From you, O Nineveh, one has marched forth who plots evil against the Lord, a wicked military strategist.

This is what the Lord has said: The days of my cause against you are ended; they are cut off and past. Though I have sent trouble on you, you will no longer be troubled.

The Lord has issued a decree against you: "Your dynasty will come to an end. I will destroy the idols and images in the temples of your gods. I will desecrate your grave -- because you are accursed!"

Behold! upon the mountains the feet of him who brings good tidings [telling of the Assyrian's death], who publishes peace! Celebrate your feasts, O Judah; perform your vows. For the wicked counselor [the king of Assyria] shall no more come against you or pass through your land; he is utterly cut off. [Then the prophet Nahum sarcastically addresses his message to Nineveh:]

The destroyer is risen up against thee: keep the fortress, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.

Behold, I am against thee, saith Jehovah of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions; and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.

Here I am against thee, saith the LORD of the hosts, and I will uncover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will show the Gentiles thy nakedness and the kingdoms thy shame.

And you will be overcome with wine, you will become feeble; you will be looking for a safe place from those who are fighting against you.
