Nahum prophesied against Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, while that empire was still at the height of its power, in the mid-seventh century B.C. The prophet, a citizen of Judah, predicted the city’s fall and vividly described the manner in which it was actually taken. This brief book reminds us that God is the God of vengeance as well as love. Though God is gracious, He does not spare the wicked.
