Bible Journey > Nahum

Here are my thoughts and highlights from Nahum as I continue my journey through the Bible:

  • Nahum means “comfort”
  • Possibly from the south
  • Writes his prophecy against Ninevah the Assyrian capital
  • Written between (663 – 612 BC) around the time of King Josiah (Judah)
    • (about 100 yrs after Jonah goes to Ninevah)
  • Best Lines:
    • God is good,
      a hiding place in tough times.
      He recognizes and welcomes
      anyone looking for help (1:7)
    • I’ll pelt you with dog dung
      and place you on a pedestal: ‘Slut on Exhibit.’ (3:6)
  • God destroys Assyria because they are “past the point of no return”
    • Like Edom (in the book of Obadiah) there is no redemptive hope

    May God be praised that you come and listen to edify your brother.
