Journal Through the Bible: Week 62 Monday

Nahum chapter 3

God tells Nineveh why they, the conquerors would be conquered.

Does God issue any commands?

  • No, it is too late. God's offer of grace to Nineveh has been withdrawn.

Does God make any promises?

  • There would be many people killed.
  • Many others would be enslaved.
  • Unlike the small children of Nineveh that God, much to the dismay of Jonah, many of the small Ninevite children of Nahum's day would be slain.
  • Their bruising would not be healed. The city would not survive.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • The Assyrian shepherds slumbered. The Shepherd of Israel lives forever.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The descriptions of destruction could be compared to descriptions of the battle of Armegeddan.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
