1 Le destructeur marche contre toi. Garde la forteresse! Veille sur la route! affermis tes reins! Recueille toute ta force!...

2 Car l'Eternel rétablit la gloire de Jacob Et la gloire d'Israël, Parce que les pillards les ont pillés Et ont détruit leurs ceps....

3 Les boucliers de ses héros sont rouges, Les guerriers sont vêtus de pourpre; Avec le fer qui étincelle apparaissent les chars, Au jour qu'il a fixé pour la bataille, Et les lances sont agitées.

4 Les chars s'élancent dans la campagne, Se précipitent sur les places; A les voir, on dirait des flambeaux, Ils courent comme des éclairs...

5 Il se souvient de ses vaillants hommes, Mais ils chancellent dans leur marche; On se hâte vers les murs, Et l'on se prépare à la défense....

6 Les portes des fleuves sont ouvertes, Et le palais s'écroule!...

7 C'en est fait: elle est mise à nu, elle est emmenée; Ses servantes gémissent comme des colombes, Et se frappent la poitrine.

8 Ninive était jadis comme un réservoir plein d'eau.... Les voilà qui fuient.... Arrêtez! arrêtez!... Mais nul ne se retourne....

9 Pillez l'argent! pillez l'or! Il y a des trésors sans fin, Des richesses en objets précieux de toute espèce.

10 On pille, on dévaste, on ravage! Et les coeurs sont abattus, Les genoux chancellent, Tous les reins souffrent, Tous les visages pâlissent.

11 Qu'est devenu ce repaire de lions, Ce pâturage des lionceaux, Où se retiraient le lion, la lionne, le petit du lion, Sans qu'il y eût personne pour les troubler?

12 Le lion déchirait pour ses petits, Etranglait pour ses lionnes; Il remplissait de proie ses antres, De dépouilles ses repaires.

13 Voici, j'en veux à toi, dit l'Eternel des armées; Je réduirai tes chars en fumée, L'épée dévorera tes lionceaux, J'arracherai du pays ta proie, Et l'on n'entendra plus la voix de tes messagers.


Exploring the Meaning of Nahum 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

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.
