Nahum 1

1:1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the
1:2 God [is] jealous, and the LORD avengeth; the LORD avengeth,
 and [is] furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his
 adversaries, and he reserveth [wrath] for his enemies.
1:3 The LORD [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will
 not at all acquit [the wicked]: the LORD [hath] his way in the
 whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of
 his feet.
1:4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all
 the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of
 Lebanon languisheth.
1:5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the
 earth is burned at his presence, even the world, and all that
 dwell therein.
1:6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in
 the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire,
 and the rocks are thrown down by him.
1:7 The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and
 he knoweth them that trust in him.
1:8 But with an over-running flood he will make an utter end of
 the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter
 end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
1:10 For while [they] are folded together [as] thorns, and while
 they are drunken [as] drunkards, they shall be devoured as
 stubble fully dry.
1:11 There is [one] come out of thee, that imagineth evil
 against the LORD, a wicked counselor.
1:12 Thus saith the LORD; Though [they are] quiet, and likewise
 many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass
 through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no
1:13 For now I will break his yoke from off thee, and will burst
 thy bonds asunder.
1:14 And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee,
 [that] no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy
 gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I
 will make thy grave; for thou art vile.
1:15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth
 good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn
 feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass
 through thee; he is utterly cut off.
