Nahum 3

1 Guai alla città di sangue, che è tutta piena di menzogna e di violenza e che non cessa di far preda!

2 S’ode rumor di sferza, strepito di ruote, galoppo di cavalli, balzar di carri.

3 I cavalieri dànno la carica, fiammeggiano le spade, sfolgoran le lance, i feriti abbondano, s’ammontano i cadaveri, sono infiniti i morti, s’inciampa nei cadaveri.

4 E questo a cagione delle tante fornicazioni dell’avvenente prostituta, dell’abile incantatrice, che vendeva le nazioni con le sue fornicazioni, e i popoli con i suoi incantesimi.

5 Eccomi a te, dice l’Eterno degli eserciti; io t’alzerò i lembi della veste fin sulla faccia e mostrerò alle nazioni la tua nudità, e ai regni la tua vergogna;

6 E ti getterò a dosso delle immondizie, t’avvilirò e ti esporrò in spettacolo.

7 Tutti quelli che ti vedranno fuggiranno lungi da te, e diranno: "Ninive è devastata! Chi la compiangerà? Dove ti cercherei dei consolatori?

8 Vali tu meglio di No-Amon, ch’era assisa tra i fiumi, circondata dalle acque, che aveva il mare per baluardo, il mare per mura?

9 L’Etiopia e l’Egitto eran la sua forza, e non avea limiti; Put ed i Libi erano i suoi ausiliari.

10 Eppure, anch’essa è stata deportata, è andata in cattività; anche i bambini suoi sono stati sfracellati a ogni canto di strada; s’è tirata la sorte sopra i suoi uomini onorati, e tutti i suoi grandi sono stati messi in catene.

11 Tu pure sarai ubriacata, t’andrai a nascondere; tu pure cercherai un rifugio davanti al nemico.

12 Tutte le tue fortezze saranno come fichi dai frutti primaticci, che, quando li si scuote, cadono in bocca di chi li vuol mangiare.

13 Ecco, il tuo popolo, in mezzo a te, son tante donne; le porte del tuo paese sono spalancate davanti ai tuoi nemici, il fuoco ha divorato le tue sbarre.

14 Attingiti pure acqua per l’assedio! Rinforza le tue fortificazioni! Entra nella malta, pesta l’argilla! Restaura la fornace da mattoni!

15 Là il fuoco ti divorerà, la spada ti distruggerà; ti divorerà come la cavalletta, fossi tu pur numerosa come le cavallette, fossi tu pur numerosa come le locuste.

16 Tu hai moltiplicato i tuoi mercanti, più delle stelle del cielo; le cavallette spogliano ogni cosa e volano via.

17 I tuoi principi son come le locuste, i tuoi ufficiali come sciami di giovani locuste, che s’accampano lungo le siepi in giorno di freddo, e quando il sole si leva volano via, e non si conosce più il posto dov’erano.

18 O re d’Assiria, i tuoi pastori si sono addormentati; i tuoi valorosi ufficiali riposano; il tuo popolo è disperso su per i monti, e non v’è chi li raduni.

19 Non v’è rimedio per la tua ferita; la tua piaga è grave; tutti quelli che udranno parlare di te batteranno le mani alla tua sorte; poiché su chi non è passata del continuo la tua malvagità?



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.
