NAHUM 2
1: He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.
2: For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.
3: The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
4: The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
5: He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared.
6: The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved.
7: And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, tabering upon their breasts.
8: But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall look back.
9: Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: for there is none end of the store and glory out of all the pleasant furniture.
10: She is empty, and void, and waste: and the heart melteth, and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gather blackness.
11: Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feedingplace of the young lions, where the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lion's whelp, and none made them afraid?
12: The lion did tear in pieces enough for his whelps, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey, and his dens with ravin.
13: Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.


NAHUM 3
1: Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;
2: The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots.
3: The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
4: Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
5: Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.
6: And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.
7: And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee?
8: Art thou better than populous No, that was situate among the rivers, that had the waters round about it, whose rampart was the sea, and her wall was from the sea?
9: Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was infinite; Put and Lubim were thy helpers.
10: Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity: her young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they cast lots for her honourable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.
11: Thou also shalt be drunken: thou shalt be hid, thou also shalt seek strength because of the enemy.
12: All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the firstripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater.
13: Behold, thy people in the midst of thee are women: the gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies: the fire shall devour thy bars.
14: Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds: go into clay, and tread the morter, make strong the brickkiln.
15: There shall the fire devour thee; the sword shall cut thee off, it shall eat thee up like the cankerworm: make thyself many as the cankerworm, make thyself many as the locusts.
16: Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of heaven: the cankerworm spoileth, and fleeth away.
17: Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.
18: Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall dwell in the dust: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them.
19: There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?


PSALM 129
1: Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
2: Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
3: The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
4: The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
5: Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
6: Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
7: Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
8: Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.


PSALM 130
1: Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
2: Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
3: If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
4: But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
5: I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
6: My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
7: Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
8: And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.


PSALM 131
1: Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
2: Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
3: Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.


PSALM 132
1: Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2: How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
3: Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4: I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
5: Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
6: Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
7: We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
8: Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
9: Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
10: For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
11: The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
12: If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
13: For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
14: This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
15: I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16: I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
17: There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
18: His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
