DIGEST OF NAHUM'S PREDICTION
When the chariots rage in the streets, when they jostle one against another in the broadways, when they speed like lightning, and glare like torches, in that day shall one who dashes in pieces prepare himself and come up before your face, O king of Assyria. He shall make you empty, void, and waste. Your heart shall melt, your knees shall smite together. There shall be much pain in your loins, and the faces of all shall gather blackness. Woe to your bloody city that is like Nineveh of old! for it is full of lies and of robbery; the prey departs not. The noise of the whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, of the prancing horses, and of the jumping chariots, are in its midst.
Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes peace! that says, O Judah, keep your solemn feasts, perform your vows, for the wicked shall no more pass through you, he is utterly cut off. For now will the Lord break the Assyrian yoke from off your neck, burst your bonds in sunder, and set you free.
God is slow to anger, and great in power. His way is in the whirlwind and in the storm. The clouds are the dust of His feet. He is jealous and will take vengeance on His adversaries. He is also a stronghold in the day of trouble, and knows them that trust in Him. But He will make an utter end of the wicked; darkness shall pursue His enemies. Affliction shall not rise up a second time.
