Nahum 1:15 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

15 [a] Behold, on the mountains the feet of him
    who brings good tidings,
    who proclaims peace!
Keep your feasts, O Judah,
    fulfil your vows,
for never again shall the wicked come against you,
    he is utterly cut off.

Nahum 3:1-3 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Ruin Imminent and Inevitable

Woe to the bloody city,
all full of lies and booty—
    no end to the plunder!
The crack of whip, and rumble of wheel,
    galloping horse and bounding chariot!
Horsemen charging,
    flashing sword and glittering spear,
hosts of slain,
    heaps of corpses,
dead bodies without end—
    they stumble over the bodies!

Nahum 3:6-7 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

I will throw filth at you
    and treat you with contempt,
    and make you a gazingstock.
And all who look on you will shrink from you and say,
Wasted is Nin′eveh; who will bemoan her?
    whence shall I seek comforters for her?[a]
