Nahum 2* Nineveh's destruction foretold. (1-10) The true cause, theirsinning against God, and his appearing against them. (11-13)1-10 Nineveh shall not put aside this judgment; there is nocounsel or strength against the Lord. God looks upon proudcities, and brings them down. Particular account is given of theterrors wherein the invading enemy shall appear against Nineveh.The empire of Assyria is represented as a queen, about to be ledcaptive to Babylon. Guilt in the conscience fills men withterror in an evil day; and what will treasures or glory do forus in times of distress, or in the day of wrath? Yet for suchthings how many lose their souls! 11-13 The kings of Assyria had long been terrible and cruel totheir neighbours, but the Lord would destroy their power. Manyplead as an excuse for rapine and fraud, that they have familiesto provide for; but what is thus obtained will never do them anygood. Those that fear the Lord, and get honestly what they have,shall not want for themselves and theirs. It is just with God todeprive those of children, or of comfort in them, who takesinful courses to enrich them. Those are not worthy to be heardagain, that have spoken reproachfully of God. Let us then cometo God upon his mercy-seat, that having peace with him throughour Lord Jesus Christ, we may know that he is for us, and thatall things shall work together for our everlasting good.
