Nahum 2

1 'n Verwoester trek teen jou op; bewaak die vesting, kyk uit langs die weg, versterk die lendene, versterk jou met alle mag!

2 Want die HERE herstel die heerlikheid van Jakob net soos die heerlikheid van Israel; want plunderaars het hulle geplunder en hulle wingerdlote verniel.

3 Die skild van sy helde is rooi geverf, die dapper manne in skarlaken gekleed, die strydwaens skitter met die glans van staal op die dag as hy hom gereedmaak, en die spiese word geswaai.

4 Langs die paaie raas die strydwaens, hulle jaag rond oor die vlaktes; hulle voorkoms is soos fakkels, soos bliksemstrale skiet hulle heen en weer.

5 Hy dink aan sy vername manne; hulle struikel in hul vaart, hulle hardloop na die muur waar die stormdak opgerig staan.

6 Die poorte van die riviere word oopgemaak, en die paleis smelt weg.

7 En dit is beslis: die stad word ontbloot, sy word weggevoer, en haar slavinne klae soos die stem van duiwe en slaan op hulle bors.

8 En Ninevé is soos 'n vywer van waters, al die dae van haar bestaan. Maar hulle loop weg! Staan tog, Staan! Maar daar is niemand wat omdraai nie.

9 Roof silwer, roof goud! En onuitputlik is die voorraad, 'n rykdom van allerhande kosbare dinge!

10 Leegheid, ontlediging, vernieling! En die hart versmelt, en knieë wankel, en in al die lendene is krampe, en die aangesig van hulle almal word bleek.

11 Waar is die lêplek van die leeus, wat die voedingsplek was van die jong leeus? Waar die leeu, die leeuin, die klein leeutjie rondgeloop het sonder dat iemand hulle skrikmaak?

12 Die leeu wat vir sy kleintjies geroof en vir sy leeuinne gewurg het, wat sy gate met roof gevul het en sy lêplekke met buit.

13 Kyk, Ek het dit teen jou, spreek die HERE van die leërskare, en Ek laat jou strydwaens in rook opgaan; en die swaard sal jou jong leeus verslind, en Ek sal jou roof van die aarde verdelg; en die stem van jou gesante sal nie meer gehoor word nie.


Exploring the Meaning of Nahum 2

In Nahum 2, Nahum is prophesying a spiritual renewal -- the formation of a new church.

A 'church', in New Christian terminology, isn't a building for religious services, or a formal organization -- it's really better thought of as a state of belief, or the religious culture, of a group of people.

In the "church" in Nahum's day, in Judea, the religious culture had gotten hollowed out. People still followed the external rituals of worship, but many had lost sight of the internals -- they might avoid certain foods, or make prescribed sacrifices, but then not do the work of applying themselves to loving the Lord and the neighbor.

In Nahum 2:1-3, there's a prophecy of the Lord’s advent, and the development of a new church from Him, that he will protect. A mountain, here, means the Lord’s Divine Love. Feet mean the most external things, as is reflected in the Lord's taking on an earthly body in His advent.

In Nahum 2:3-6, it's talking about people who destroy the truths of the church in themselves and try to destroy them in others, to push away the Lord's protection.

In Nahum 2:7-10.... false ideas about life will prevail with people who destroy truths. All things that could be part of the church in them will ultimately be taken away.

In Nahum 2:11-13, it's saying that once all things of the church are taken away from a person, that person can no longer harm the church itself.
