Vivid poetry describes the destruction of the capital city of one of the severest of the enemies of God’s people—Nineveh. The ultimate triumph of God over continuously unrepented evil, balances God’s compassion for the city that we encountered in the book of Jonah.

The meaning of Nahum’s name is “comfort.” Though the book’s three chapters describe anything but comfort to the people of Nineveh, still it is consolation to know that ultimate justice will prevail, that God and God’s goodness is finally going to triumph.

Nations, cities, enterprises, and even minor projects are doomed to defeat if they are built on the sands of sinfulness, pride, deceit, and exploitation, instead of upon the rock of Jesus. The reading will sober and awaken you to deeper justice and mercy in your own life.
