Nahum 2
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The Ruler went up before you and he keeps guard, and he watches the road, and he fastens the loins and his power is very mighty

2Because I return the honor of Yaqob like the honor of Israel, because the oppressors have trodden them, and they have destroyed their shoots

3The shields of their mighty men are stained red and the men mighty men parade with torches of fire and in chariots in the day when they are prepared and the horsemen are encouraged

4And in the streets they sing in their chariots and they are boasting, and their appearance is like lamps and they run like lightning

5They shall seize their Rulers and they shall be stumbled in their marching and they shall hurry to the wall and they shall prepare the battlements

6The gates of Judea were opened and the Temple shook

7And she has set her horsemen and she went up and her maids were moaning in their hearts like doves

8And Nineva is like a lake of waters and she is between the waters, and those men have fled. Stand! Stand! And there is none who returns

9Plunder silver and plunder gold and there is no end to its jewels. Abundant are all of the garments of its desire

10She is trampled and gangrenous and broken through and the heart is broken and knocking of the knees and trembling in all loins, and all faces I shall make black as the soot of cedar wood

11Where is the den of lions and the house of feeding of whelps of lions where a lion and the whelp of a lion goes to enter there? And there is none that harms

12A lion breaks apart enough for the food of his whelps and has killed also for his mates and filled his caves and his dens with prey

13Behold, I am against you, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, and I shall destroy your multitudes in smoke and your young lions shall consume the sword, and I shall destroy your prey from the Earth, and the sound of your deeds shall not be heard again
