Nahum 3

1 Wee die bloedstad wat louter bedrog, vol geweld is, terwyl rowery nie ophou nie!

2 Hoor, die sweep! En hoor, die gedreun van wiele! En perde wat jaag, en waens wat stamp!

3 Ruiters op 'n galop en geglinster van swaarde en geblits van spiese! En 'n menigte wat verslaan is, en hope dooies en geen einde aan die lyke nie--'n mens struikel oor hulle lyke!

4 Weens die veelheid van die hoererye van die hoer vol bevalligheid, 'n meesteres in towerkunste, wat nasies met haar hoererye verkoop het en volkstamme met haar towerkunste.

5 Kyk, Ek het dit teen jou, spreek die HERE van die leërskare, en Ek sal jou slippe optel oor jou aangesig en nasies jou naaktheid laat sien en koninkryke jou skande.

6 En Ek sal vuilgoed op jou gooi en jou aan minagting prysgee en van jou 'n skouspel maak,

7 sodat elkeen wat jou sien, van jou af sal wegvlug en : Verwoes is Ninevé! Wie sal met haar medelyde hê? Waar sal ek troosters vir jou gaan soek?

8 Is jy beter as No-Amon wat gelê het aan die Nylstrome, met waters rondom hom; wie se voorskans die groot water was, waters sy muur?

9 Kus was sy krag en Egiptenaars sonder getal, Putéërs en Líbiërs was jou tot hulp.

10 Nogtans het dit as gevangene in ballingskap gegaan; nogtans is sy kinders by al die straathoeke verpletter, en oor sy edeles is die lot gewerp, en al sy groot manne is met kettings geboei.

11 Ook jy sal dronk word, beneweld wees, ook jy sal 'n toevlug soek teen die vyand.

12 Al jou vestings is vyebome met voorvye: as 'n mens skud, val hulle in die mond van die eter.

13 Kyk, jou volk binne-in jou is soos vroue, die poorte van jou land is wyd oopgemaak vir jou vyande, die vuur het jou grendels verteer.

14 Skep vir jou water vir die beleëring, versterk jou vestings, gaan in die modder en trap klei, gryp die steenvorm.

15 Daar sal die vuur jou verteer, die swaard jou uitroei, jou verslind net soos voetgangersprinkane. Al vermenigvuldig jy soos voetgangers, al vermenigvuldig jy soos treksprinkane;

16 al het jy jou koopmans meer gemaak as die sterre aan die hemel--die voetgangers vervel en vlieg weg!

17 Jou wagters is soos treksprinkane, en jou amptenare is soos swerms sprinkane wat op 'n koue dag op die heining sit--die son breek deur, en hulle vlieg weg, en niemand weet waar hulle beland het nie.

18 Jou herders sluimer, o koning van Assur, jou edeles lê daar, jou volk is op die berge verstrooi, en niemand versamel hulle nie.

19 Daar is geen herstel vir jou verbreking nie; jou wond is ongeneeslik; almal wat die tyding omtrent jou verneem, slaan hulle hande saam oor jou; want oor wie het jou boosheid nie voortdurend heengegaan nie?



Exploring the Meaning of Nahum 3      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Nahum 3, the inner meaning is mostly teaching us about the need to reason from a sound spiritual foundation -- to root out false ideas, adopt true ones, and genuinely live by them.

In Nahum 3:1-4, All those who would like to destroy the truths of the Lord’s church will be gathered in the spiritual world; they gravitate towards each other, and essentially form hellish societies.

This is explained further, in Nahum 3:5-7: In the spiritual world it becomes impossible for evil people to hide their true loves behind a pretense of being good.

In Nahum 3:8-17, the inner meaning is that any doctrinal truths will be forgotten by those people, because they have lost all desire to know them, and certainly all desire to use them as a guide to behavior.

Nahum 3:18 makes the point that human reason isn't a reliable foundation. Assyria stands for the ability to reason, but if it starts from an unsound framework, it's not useful.

Nahum 3:19 hammers the point home: There is nothing of any soundness left in them.
