1 ニネベについての託宣。エルコシびとナホムの幻の書。

2 はねたみ、かつあだを報いる神、はあだを報いる者、また憤る者、はおのがあだに報復し、おのがに対して憤りをいだく。

3 は怒ることおそく、力強き者、すべき者を決してゆるされない者、主の道はつむじ風と大風の中にあり、はそののちりである。

4 彼はを戒めて、これをかわかし、すべてのをかれさせる。バシャンとカルメルはしおれ、レバノンはしぼむ。

5 もろもろのは彼のに震い、もろもろのは溶け、地は彼のにむなしくなり、世界とその中に住む者も皆、むなしくなる。

6 だれが彼の憤りのに立つことができよう。だれが彼の燃える怒りに耐えることができよう。その憤りはのように注がれ、も彼によって裂かれる。

7 は恵み深く、なやみのの要害である。彼はご自分を避け所とする者を知っておられる。

8 しかし、彼はみなぎる洪水であだを全く滅ぼし、おのがを暗やみに追いやられる。

9 あなたがたはに対して何を計るか。彼はその敵に二度としかえしをする必要がないように敵を全く滅ぼされる。

10 彼らは結びからまったいばらのように、かわいた刈り株のように、焼き尽される。

11 に対して悪事を計り、よこしまな事を勧める者があなたのうちから出たではないか。

12 はこう言われる、「たとい彼らは強く、かつ多くあっても、切り倒されて絶えはてる。わたしはあなたを苦しめたが、重ねてあなたを苦しめない。

13 今わたしは彼のくびきを砕いて、あなたからとり除き、あなたのなわめを切りはなす」。

14 はあなたについてお命じになった、「あなたの名は長く続かない。わたしはあなたの神々から、彫像および鋳造を除き去る。あなたは罪深い者だから、わたしはあなたのを設ける」。

15 見よ、良きおとずれを伝える者のの上にある。彼は平安を宣べている。ユダよ、あなたの祭を行い、あなたの誓願をはたせ。よこしまな者は重ねて、あなたに向かって攻めてこないからである。彼は全く断たれる。

What's the Book of Nahum about?

We can never really satisfactorily find our way into a book of the Bible, especially a book of the Old Testament, unless we take on board that it's a mirror to us of the inner challenges and experiences we face. Its message, for us, is not about the world outside of us, but about the world inside of us. Beneath the surface, these Bible books focus on this inner world of our thoughts and feelings, burdens and challenges, successes and failures, achievements and disappointments, as we make our journey towards being a more spiritual person.

Most people readily see this "inner meaning" when it comes to the story of Moses leading the ancient people of Israel out of slavery in Egypt to, eventually, the Promised Land. It's movement forward, and movement backward, a longing for what we dream was the past, and more. It speaks to us all.

All of ancient Israel’s enemies symbolize things that attack, plunder, weaken, marginalise and imprison what is from the Lord in our lives. We try to stand up for what's right and decent in a given situation, but in no time, a voice is whispering to us ‘Why bother?’, ‘Who cares?’

Some of those enemies of ancient Israel were fearsome, like the Assyrians and the Babylonians. They were ruthless, rich, powerful and had massive armies.

So think for a moment: what might be amongst the most intimidating ‘enemies’ of our spiritual well-being? What are those things likely to do the most damage?

Babylon has long been recognized as a symbol of power and self-aggrandizement. But what about the Assyrians, who are the antagonists here in the Book of Nahum?

The Assyrians were menacing the ancient Israelites for more than a century, first sweeping away the northern kingdom of Israel in 721 BC, and then hanging around in the area for decades afterwards, a considerable threat to the remaining, southern, kingdom of Judea. How feared and despised they were is so evident in this prophecy of Nahum.

So, in us, what might the Assyrians symbolize? Outside the fortified and walled city of Jerusalem, on one famous occasion they showed themselves to be adept talkers and persuaders. (See the story, in 2 Kings 18).

Hold to this for a moment – “talkers and persuaders”. The thing is that there are those forces and influences that become active within us, trying to talk and persuade us that, for example, sin is fine if it remains undiscovered, or that the Ten Commandments don’t have a place in this day and age, or that 'my lapses are nothing by comparison with what goes on in the world generally'.

If we can see this for what it is, it is pretty fearsome stuff, capable of inflicting great damage to us spiritually.

So, read the Book of Nahum - just 3 chapters of prophecy - with this in mind. It is not people, or tribes, that the Lord pits Himself against - but those very things which hold the potential to devastate us spiritually.

In Chapter 1, “Nineveh” represents a state of life in which we're bringing bad things on ourselves because we aren't basing our lives on spiritual truths from the Lord's Word.

In Nahum 1:2-6, it's saying that Jehovah appears as an enemy to people who are wanting to stay in evil ways. In the spiritual world, all pretences of innocence or any good thing are stripped away, and our true selfish motives are seen.

In Nahum 1:7, there's a hopeful note; people who turn to the Lord and walk with Him are helped.

But, next there's a warning... in Nahum 1:8-11, that people who stick with their false ideas and evils will perish. It's worth noting that, in New Christian thought, there's the concept that God doesn't condemn us; we end up living in a society that fits our own values. If we're essentially selfish, we'll find a spiritual home in a society of essentially selfish people, and... it's probably pretty grim. It's a form of "perishing".

In Nahum 1:12-14, it's talking about people who are in evil because they don't know any better -- it's evil from ignorance. They can be helped if they listen and repent, and allow their false ideas to be removed (as was described in Jonah 3. That's what is meant by this: “…for I will break his, (Belial’s) brace from off thee and pull apart thy bonds.”

Finally, in Nahum 1:15, there's the beginning of a new theme, which leads into Nahum 2.

怒り
怒りは、それが定義を必要としないほど、人々にとって非常に一般的な感情です。しかし、興味のある点をいくつか挙げることができます。 1) 主は決して怒られません。怒りが主に帰するのは、この言葉が人間に意味を持たせるために書かれているからであり、人間が悪であるときには、主は怒るべきであるかのように思えるからです。そして、そのように考えることは人を傷つけることではありません。また、悪人が自分の計画がうまくいかない時に、主に怒りを感じて、それが返ってくると思っています。 2) 熱意はしばしば怒りのように見えますが、そうではなく、悪い動機ではなく、良い動機から来ています。怒りは利己的な愛が妨げられたり、攻撃されたりしたときに人に現れますが、熱意は善良な愛や価値ある真理が妨げられたり、攻撃されたりしたときに人に現れます。悪魔やサタンは怒りを感じ、それをよく感じ、攻撃しようとします。天使は熱意を感じ、しばしばそれを感じ、守ろうとすることがあります。

神々
主は愛そのものであり、知恵そのものの形で表現されます。それから、愛は彼の本質であり、彼の最深部です。知恵-愛を行動に移す方法についての愛情のある理解-はわずかに外的であり、愛に自分自身を表現する方法を与えます。 聖書が「エホバ」について語るとき、それは主の本質である最も深い愛を表しています。その愛はそれ自体で一つの完全で完全なものであり、エホバもまた一つであり、主にのみ適用される名前です。しかし、知恵は、著作がまとめて神の真実と呼ぶ、非常に多様な思考とアイデアで表現されます。また、多くの想像上の神がいます、そして時々天使と人々は神と呼ばれることができます(主はモーセがアーロンにとって神であると言った)。ですから、聖書が主を「神」と呼ぶとき、ほとんどの場合、それは神の真理を指します。 他の場合、「神」は神の人間と呼ばれるものに言及しています。これがある場合: 人間として、私たちは神の愛として主に直接関わることはできません。強力すぎて純粋すぎます。代わりに、神の真理を通して神を理解することによって、神にアプローチしなければなりません。神の真理は、人間の形の主であり、私たちがアプローチし理解できる形です。したがって、「神」は、この人間的側面に関しても使用されます。なぜなら、それは真実の表現だからです。
