Nahum

Details, Please

“Woe to the bloody city!” Nahum cries (3:1).  Nineveh, capital of the brutal Assyrian Empire, has been targeted for judgment by God Himself, who will “make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock” (3:6) for sins of idolatry and cruelty.  Nahum’s prophecy comes true when the Babylonian Empire overruns Nineveh in 612 BC.
