Creation is the work of God's fingers (Ps.8:3)...punishment
of the wicked the work of God's Hand (Ps 39:10)...
salvation the work of God's Arm (Ps 77:1).
This book was written about 150 years after the
book of Jonah. Try to get the meaning of it. One

Nah 1:7 What a wonderful promise! May we lay hold
Nah 1:15 We also find this verse in Is.52:7,
speaking of the beautiful feet of the Lord. Nahum
means "the Lord's affliction"; and in
verse 9 we see that His "affliction shall

the world is becoming even more wicked and
violent, so let us be as separate from it as
Chap. 3:8 Probably refers to Egypt... "whose
rampart was the sea", or the river Nile.
