Nahum – Chapter 2: Nineveh to Fall

Thus far God is an angry and jealous god in the book of Nahum. Let’s see if his anger continues in the second chapter.

“The Lord will restore the splendor of Jacob like the splendor of Israel, though destroyers have laid them waste and have ruined their vines.” – Nahum 2:2

God is going to fix what he allowed to be destroyed in the first place. Hero? Savior? Nope, just a jackass.

“Her female slaves moan like doves and beat on their breasts.” – Nahum 2:7

God allows slaves. Doesn’t stop it.

“‘I am against you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” – Nahum 2:13

Great, but God wasn’t against them before. This is too little, too late from this worthless god.

This chapter shows us that God is now fixing what he caused to happen in the first place. It’s like calling the fire department for the fire you intentionally started.
