July 20, 2019: Day 84 – Nahum 2

This chapter depicts  the destruction of Nineveh, as it is described in vs.8 like “a pool whose waters run away.”  The kiss of death is seen in vs.13 as  we read about the Lord of hosts who says that they will be burned down and that those who hunt them will not be stopped.  It is a pretty wicked continuation of what was promised in the first chapter as we definitely see Nineveh in this book of the Bible as the enemy of God, again in contrast to Jonah where they are seen as enemy and then protagonist, with Jonah, a Hebrew person, the enemy, or at least the antagonist.  There will be no change in theme as we move to the next and last chapter.
