Nahum 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Woe to the city of blood, for all of it is falsehood and it is full of evil, and the ruin in it is not searched out!

2The sound of the whip and the sound of shaking of wheels, the horse snorting and shaking chariots

3The horseman who is driving and the sword that flashes and the javelin that shines and the multitude of the slain and the abundance of the corpses, and there is no end to the corpses; they will stumble on them among their corpses

4From the abundance of the fornication of a harlot beautiful in appearance and Mistress of sorceries who trains up the nations with her fornication, and generations in her witchcraft

5Behold, I am against you, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, and I shall throw your skirts over your faces, and I shall show your nakedness to the nations and your dishonor to the kingdoms

6And I shall cast defilement upon you and I shall disgrace you and I shall make you into a spectacle

7Everyone whoever sees you shall be loathe of you and shall say: “For whom is Nineva plundered? Will you sorrow for yourself, and where shall I seek a comforter for you?

8Are you better than Yavan of Amon who dwells on the rivers and waters surround him, whose power is the sea and the waters, his fortification

9Cush and Egypt is her strength and she has no limit; the Putians and the Libyans were among her allies

10Also she went into captivity and her children were dashed to pieces at the head of all of its streets, and for her honorable men they cast lots and all her great ones were bound in chains

11Also you shall be wretched, and you shall be despised; also you shall seek help from your enemies

12All of your fortified cities are the first fruits like figs, which whenever they are ripe they shall fall into the mouth of the eater

13And your people within you are like women; the gates of your land shall be opened to your enemies, and fire will devour your bars

14Draw for yourself water in the siege and strengthen your fortified cities; bring in mud and tread in clay and strengthen counsel

15Fire shall consume you there and the sword shall destroy you and shall consume you like the crawling locust, because you increased like the crawling locust and you multiplied like locusts

16And you have multiplied your Merchants more than the stars of Heaven the crawling locust sheds skin and flies away

17Your Nazarites are like the locust and your fighters like the locust that settles in hedges in the cold day that whenever the sun has set, it rises, and his place is not known

18Your neighbors slumber, King of Assyria, and your associates have disbanded, your people are scattered on the mountains and there is none gathering them

19There is none who grieves for him, for your brokenness is grievous; all that have heard your disease clapped hands over you, because your evil has passed upon every man constantly The Prophecy of Nakhum is finished
