1 En folkförskingrare drager upp mot dig; bevaka dina fästen. Speja utåt vägen, omgjorda dina länder bruka din kraft, så mycket du förmår.

2 Ty HERREN vill återställa Jakobs höghet såsom Israels höghet, då nu plundrare så hava ödelagt dem och så fördärvat deras vinträd.

3 Hans hjältars sköldar äro färgade röda, stridsmännen gå klädda i scharlakan; vagnarna gnistra av eld, när han gör dem redo till strid; och man skakar lansar av cypressträ.

4 På vägarna storma vagnarna fram, de köra om varandra på fälten; såsom bloss äro de att skåda lika ljungeldar fara de åstad.

5 Han vet nogsamt vilka väldiga kämpar han äger; de störta överända, där de rusa framåt. De hasta mot stadens murar, och stormtaken göras redo.

6 Strömportarna måste öppna sig, och palatset försmälter av ångest.

7 Ja, domen står fast: hon bliver blottad, bortsläpad; hennes tärnor måste sucka likasom duvor och slå sig för sitt bröst.

8 I all sin tid var Nineve lik en vattenrik damm, men nu flyr vattnet bort. »Stannen! Stannen!» -- Nej, ingen vänder sig om.

9 Röven nu silver, röven guld. Här finnas skatter utan ände, överflöd på alla dyrbara håvor.

10 Ödeläggelse och förödelse och förstörelse! Förfärade hjärtan och skälvande knän! Darrande länder allestädes! Allas ansikten hava skiftat färg.

11 Var är nu lejonens kula, den plats där de unga lejonen förtärde sitt rov, där lejonet och lejoninnan hade sin gång, där lejonungen gick omkring, utan att någon skrämde bort den?

12 Var är lejonet som tog rov, så mycket dess ungar ville hava, och dödade åt sina lejoninnor, ja, uppfyllde sina hålor med rov och sina kulor med rövat gods?

13 Se, jag skall vända mig mot dig, säger HERREN Sebaot; dina vagnar skall jag låta gå upp i rök, och dina unga lejon skall svärdet förtära. Jag skall utrota ditt rövade gods från jorden och man skall ej mer höra dina sändebuds röst



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.
