Nahum 3:1-3 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

The Lord Will Judge Nineveh

How terrible it will be for Nineveh!
    It is a city of murderers!
It is full of liars!
    It is filled with stolen goods!
    The killing never stops!
Whips crack!
    Wheels clack!
Horses charge!
    Chariots rumble!
Horsemen attack!
    Swords flash!
    Spears gleam!
Many people die.
    Dead bodies pile up.
They can’t even be counted.
    People trip over them.

Nahum 3:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Woe to Nineveh

Woe to the city of blood,
    full of lies,
full of plunder,
    never without victims!
The crack of whips,
    the clatter of wheels,
galloping horses
    and jolting chariots!
Charging cavalry,
    flashing swords
    and glittering spears!
Many casualties,
    piles of dead,
bodies without number,
    people stumbling over the corpses
