The Book of Nahum Chapter 3 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 3. Woe to the bloody City it is all full of Lies and robbery its victim never Departs The noise of a whip and the noise of Rattling wheels of galloping horses of Clattering Chariots Horsemen charged with bright sword and Glittering spear There is a multitude of slain a great Number of bodies countless Corpses They stumble over the Corpses Because of the multitude of harlet trees Of the seductive harlot the Mistress of Sorceries who sells Nations through her Holidays and families through her Sorceries Behold I am against you says the Lord of hosts I will lift your skirts over your face I will show the Nations your nakedness And the kingdoms your shame I will cast abominable filth upon you Make you vile and make you a spectacle It shall come to pass that all who look Upon you will flee from you and say Nineveh is laid waste who will bemoan Her where shall I seek comforters for You Are you better than no Ammon that was Situated by the river that had the Waters around her whose Rampart was the Sea whose wall was the sea Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength and

It was boundless Put and lubim were your helpers Yet she was carried away She went into captivity Her young children also were dashed to Pieces at the head of every street They cast lots for her Honorable Men And all her great men were Bound in Chains You also will be drunk You will be hidden You also will seek Refuge from the enemy All your strongholds are fig trees with Ripened figs If they are shaken they fall into the Mouth of the eater Surely your people in your midst are Women The gates of your land are wide open for Your enemies Fire shall Devour the bars of your Gates Draw your water for The Siege fortify Your strongholds go into the clay and Tread the mortar make strong The Brick Kiln There the fire will devour you the sword Will cut you off It will eat you up like a locust Make yourself many like the Locust make Yourself many like the swarming locusts You have multiplied your Merchants more Than the stars of Heaven The Locust plunders and flies away Your commanders are like swarming

Locusts and your generals like great Grasshoppers which camp in the hedges on A cold day When the Sun rises they flee away And the place where they are is not Known Your shepherd's Slumber O King of Assyria Your Nobles rest in the dust Your people are scattered on the Mountains and no one gathers them Your injury has no healing Your wound is severe All who hear news of you will clap their Hands over you For upon whom has not your wickedness Passed continually
