Nahum 1:1 – The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

Nahum 1:3 – The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
Nahum 1:4 – He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.
Nahum 1:5 – The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Nahum 1:6 – Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
Nahum 1:7 – The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
Nahum 1:8 – But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
Celebrating the memory
of Thy prophet Nahum, O Lord,
through him we entreat Thee: Save Thou our souls!
Thy pure heart, enlightened by the Spirit,
became the dwelling place of most splendid prophecy;
for thou beholdest things afar off as though they were near.
Wherefore, we honor thee,
O blessed and glorious Prophet Nahum.
Both now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
