Nahum – Chapter 3: Woe to Nineveh

Today we take a look at the third chapter in Nahum. Thus far in the first two chapters we’ve seen an angry God that says he will put out the fires he intentionally started. Sure.

“Many casualties, piles of dead, bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses—” – Nahum 3:3

God has the ability to bring peace, but doesn’t.

“…all because of the wanton lust of a prostitute, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nation, by her prostitution, and peoples by her witchcraft.” – Nahum 3:4

Um, sure. Let’s blame women. Fuck God.

“Her infants were dashed to pieces at every street corner.” – Nahum 3:10

God killing babies.

Sigh. God can bring peace, but this chapter is nothing but the destruction God causes. Babies are dashed to pieces in the streets for crying out loud!

And thus ends the book of Nahum.
