The Lord is good,
    giving protection in times of trouble.
    He knows who trusts in him.
But like a rushing flood,
    he will completely destroy Nineveh;
    he will chase his enemies until he kills them.

The Lord will completely destroy
    anyone making plans against him.
    Trouble will not come a second time.
