Nahum, Day 2 Readings

A Great Battle  

Today's reading describes the great battle between the armies of Assyria and God.  There will be chaos as soldiers rush around trying to mount a defense against an enemy they do not understand -- in fact, there are questions as to whether they will be able to see their enemy.  During the uncertainty, all of the riches will be stolen as spoils of war, everything will be destroyed, the men will be killed and the women enslaved and taken into exile.  For the honor of Judah and Israel, God will act with complete vengeance.

Read Nahum 2:1-13  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
