The Destruction of Nineveh1 He is finished, he is consumed, [4ascended 5breathing 6in 7your face 1the one being lifted away 2from out of 3affliction]. Watch the way! Hold the loin! Be [2manly 3in 4strength 1very]! 2 For the lord perverted the insolence of Jacob, as the insolence of Israel; for the ones shaking off shook them off, and [2their vine branches 1they ruined]. 3 The weapons of his command of men [2men 1are mighty] mocking with fire; the reins of their chariots in the day of his preparation, and the horsemen shall be making a disruption. 4 In the ways; [3shall be in tumult 1the 2chariots], and shall be closely joined in the squares; the sight of them as lamps of fire, and as lightnings running along. 5 And [2shall be remembering 1their great men], and shall flee by day; and they shall be weak in their goings; and they shall hasten unto the walls, and they shall prepare [2advance guards 1their]. 6 Gates of the cities were opened wide, and the palaces fell into ruin, 7 and the support was uncovered; and she ascended, and her maidservants were led away as doves, uttering sounds in their hearts. 8 And Nineveh, [2are as 3a pool 4of water 1her waters]; and they fleeing did not stand, and there was none paying attention. 9 They plundered the silver, they plundered the gold, and there was no limit to her decoration; they were weighed down by all [2items 1her desirable]. 10 Thrusting and violent shaking, and tumult, and heart breaking, and loosening of the knees, and pangs on every loin, and the face of all as a burnt earthen pot. 11 Where is the home of the lions, and the pasture being to the cubs? Where [2go 1did the lion], for [3to enter 4there 2cub 1the lion], and there was none frightening? 12 The lion seized by force the things fit for his cubs, and choked prey for his young lions, and filled [2with game 1his nest], and his home of things of seizure. 13 Behold, I am against you, says the lord almighty, and I will burn away [3in 4smoke 2multitude 1your], and your lions I will devour by the broadsword, and I will utterly destroy [2from out of 3the 4land 1your game], and in no way should [2be heard of 3yet 1your works].
