NAHUM BIBLE STUDY CHAPTER TWO
This chapter gives a detailed prophetic description of the attack on Nineveh and its destruction by the Babylonian alliance in 612 B.C.
SHIELDS OF HIS SOLDIERS
The appearance of the attackers (verse 1) would cause much fear.
“He” is probably the Assyrian king, calling on his soldiers to resist the attackers.
THE RIVER GATES.
These gates apparently are the floodgates or dams that controlled the Khoser River, which ran through the city. They may have been closed to gather a large body of water and then suddenly released with tremendous force to damage the walls of the city.
ITS WATER IS DRAINING AWAY.
Some interpret this as a picture of the people fleeing from the city, like water rushing out of a large container.
THE LIONS’ DEN.
The Assyrians had unmercifully attacked, robbed and totally destroyed other nations, much like lions that kill and tear apart their prey. The Assyrians showed no compassion or mercy for the people. Now they would be attacked, conquered and killed without mercy (verse 10). Jesus teaches His followers about this principle when He said, “all who draw the sword will die by the sword” (Matthew 26:52; Revelation 13:10).
I AM AGAINST YOU.
It was God Himself who stood opposed to Nineveh. Their brutality, cruelty and inhumane acts had been so extreme that the almighty God of the universe declared war against them. The opportunity for them to repent and turn to God for mercy was past. They would now receive the torture and grief they deserved (Revelation 18:6-8).
