Nahum 1:2–8

||dGod is jealous, and ethe Lord revengeth;

The Lord revengeth, and is furious;

The Lord will take vengeance fon his adversaries,

And ghe reserveth wrath for his enemies.

The Lord is hslow to anger, and igreat in power,

And kwill not at all acquit the wicked:

lThe Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in mthe storm,

And the clouds are the dust of his feet.

nHe rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry,

And drieth up all the rivers:

opBashan qlanguisheth, and opCarmel,

And the flower of oLebanon qlanguisheth.

rThe mountains quake at him, and sthe hills melt,

And the earth tis burned at his presence,

Yea, uthe world, and all that dwell therein.

vwWho can stand before his indignation?

And who can abide in xthe fierceness of his anger?

His fury yis poured out wlike fire,

And zthe rocks are thrown down by him.

aThe Lord is good, ba ||strong hold in the day of trouble;

And che knoweth dthem that trust in him.

But with ean overrunning flood he will fmake an utter end of gthe place thereof,

And darkness shall pursue his enemies.
