SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE FOR 13TH APRIL 2021 TODAY OUTLINE
You are reading Today’s Scripture Union
Part of the immediate punishment on the wicked city of Nineveh and the entire Assyrian empire was to be implemented through a foreign attacker. Vs.1 and 3-5 give out a call for the defence of the city, but their story is that of desolation and woe as their defence collapses (vs.6ff).
Vs.11-12 are a mockery of the Assyrian imperial symbol of the lion, and their goddess, Ishtar, often depicted as a lioness. While the Assyrian empire is called upon to defend itself (which it couldn’t!), notice what the Lord is going to do for Jacob (Israel) in v.2.
Other men of God in the past have been encouraged by the knowledge that God is on their side. See 2 Chronicles 32:7-8 for Hezekiah’s example as he faced the same Assyrian army many years before Nahum. All who are in positions of power should learn a lesson from Nineveh’s fall. In the day that God comes to settle accounts with men, every man will receive his due as in vs.7 – 10.
