Nahum 1 (WEBP)

[1] A revelation about Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
[2] Yahweh° is a jealous God§ and avenges. Yahweh avenges and is full of wrath. Yahweh takes vengeance on his adversaries, and he maintains wrath against his enemies.
[3] Yahweh is slow to anger, and great in power, and will by no means leave the guilty unpunished. Yahweh has his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
[4] He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel languish. The flower of Lebanon languishes.
[5] The mountains quake before him, and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, yes, the world, and all who dwell in it.
[6] Who can stand before his indignation? Who can endure the fierceness of his anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken apart by him.
[7] Yahweh is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who take refuge in him.
[8] But with an overflowing flood, he will make a full end of her place, and will pursue his enemies into darkness.
[9] What do you plot against Yahweh? He will make a full end. Affliction won’t rise up the second time.
[10] For entangled like thorns, and drunken as with their drink, they are consumed utterly like dry stubble.
[11] One has gone out of you who devises evil against Yahweh, who counsels wickedness.
[12] Yahweh says: “Though they are in full strength and likewise many, even so they will be cut down and pass away. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no more.
[13] Now I will break his yoke from off you, and will burst your bonds apart.”
[14] Yahweh has commanded concerning you: “No more descendants will bear your name. Out of the house of your gods, I will cut off the engraved image and the molten image. I will make your grave, for you are vile.”
[15] Behold,§ on the mountains the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace! Keep your feasts, Judah! Perform your vows, for the wicked one will no more pass through you. He is utterly cut off.

Nahum 1:2a “Yahweh” is God’s proper Name, sometimes rendered “LORD” (all caps) in other translations.
Nahum 1:2b The Hebrew word rendered “God” is “אֱלֹהִ֑ים” (Elohim).

Nahum 1 (KJVS)

[1] The burden H4853 of Nineveh H5210. The book H5612 of the vision H2377 of Nahum H5151 the Elkoshite H512.
[2] God H410 [is] jealous H7072, and the LORD H3068 revengeth H5358 (8802); the LORD H3068 revengeth H5358 (8802), and [is] furious H1167 H2534; the LORD H3068 will take vengeance H5358 (8802) on his adversaries H6862, and he reserveth H5201 (8802) [wrath] for his enemies H341 (8802).
[3] The LORD H3068 [is] slow H750 to anger H639, and great H1419 in power H3581, and will not at all H5352 (8763) acquit H5352 (8762) [the wicked]: the LORD H3068 hath his way H1870 in the whirlwind H5492 and in the storm H8183, and the clouds H6051 [are] the dust H80 of his feet H7272.
[4] He rebuketh H1605 (8802) the sea H3220, and maketh it dry H2717 (8689), and drieth up H3001 (8762) all the rivers H5104: Bashan H1316 languisheth H535 (8797), and Carmel H3760, and the flower H6525 of Lebanon H3844 languisheth H535 (8797).
[5] The mountains H2022 quake H7493 (8804) at him, and the hills H1389 melt H4127 (8712), and the earth H776 is burned H5375 (8799) at his presence H6440, yea, the world H8398, and all that dwell H3427 (8802) therein.
[6] Who can stand H5975 (8799) before H6440 his indignation H2195? and who can abide H6965 (8799) in the fierceness H2740 of his anger H639? his fury H2534 is poured out H5413 (8738) like fire H784, and the rocks H6697 are thrown down H5422 (8738) by him.
[7] The LORD H3068 [is] good H2896, a strong hold H4581 in the day H3117 of trouble H6869; and he knoweth H3045 (8802) them that trust H2620 (8802) in him.
[8] But with an overrunning H5674 (8802) flood H7858 he will make H6213 (8799) an utter end H3617 of the place H4725 thereof, and darkness H2822 shall pursue H7291 (8762) his enemies H341 (8802).
[9] What do ye imagine H2803 (8762) against the LORD H3068? he will make H6213 (8802) an utter end H3617: affliction H6869 shall not rise up H6965 (8799) the second time H6471.
[10] For while [they be] folden together H5440 (8803) [as] thorns H5518, and while they are drunken H5433 (8803) [as] drunkards H5435, they shall be devoured H398 (8795) as stubble H7179 fully H4392 dry H3002.
[11] There is [one] come out H3318 (8804) of thee, that imagineth H2803 (8802) evil H7451 against the LORD H3068, a wicked H1100 counsellor H3289 (8802).
[12] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Though [they be] quiet H8003, and likewise many H7227, yet thus shall they be cut down H1494 (8738), when he shall pass through H5674 (8804). Though I have afflicted H6031 (8765) thee, I will afflict H6031 (8762) thee no more.
[13] For now will I break H7665 (8799) his yoke H4132 from off thee, and will burst H5423 thy bonds H4147 in sunder H5423 (8762).
[14] And the LORD H3068 hath given a commandment H6680 (8765) concerning thee, [that] no more of thy name H8034 be sown H2232 (8735): out of the house H1004 of thy gods H430 will I cut off H3772 (8686) the graven image H6459 and the molten image H4541: I will make H7760 (8799) thy grave H6913; for thou art vile H7043 (8804).
[15] Behold upon the mountains H2022 the feet H7272 of him that bringeth good tidings H1319 (8764), that publisheth H8085 (8688) peace H7965! O Judah H3063, keep H2287 (8798) thy solemn feasts H2282, perform H7999 (8761) thy vows H5088: for the wicked H1100 shall no more H3254 (8686) pass through H5674 (8800) thee; he is utterly cut off H3772 (8738).

Young’s Literal Translation

Nahum 1 (YLT)

[1] Burden of Nineveh. The Book of the Vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
[2] A God zealous and avenging is Jehovah, An avenger is Jehovah, and possessing fury. An avenger is Jehovah on His adversaries, And He is watching for His enemies.
[3] Jehovah is slow to anger, and great in power, And Jehovah doth not entirely acquit, In a hurricane and in a tempest is His way, And a cloud is the dust of His feet.
[4] He is pushing against a sea, and drieth it up, Yea, all the floods He hath made dry, Languishing are Bashan and Carmel, Yea, the flower of Lebanon is languishing.
[5] Mountains have shaken because of Him, And the hills have been melted; And lifted up is the earth at His presence, And the world and all dwelling in it.
[6] Before His indignation who doth stand? And who riseth up in the heat of His anger? His fury hath been poured out like fire, And the rocks have been broken by Him.
[7] Good is Jehovah for a strong place in a day of distress. And He knoweth those trusting in Him.
[8] And with a flood passing over, An end He maketh of its place, And His enemies doth darkness pursue.
[9] What do we devise against Jehovah? An end He is making, arise not twice doth distress.
[10] For while princes are perplexed, And with their drink are drunken, They have been consumed as stubble fully dried.
[11] From thee hath come forth a deviser of evil Against Jehovah-a worthless counsellor.
[12] Thus said Jehovah: Though complete, and thus many, Yet thus they have been cut off, And he hath passed away. And I afflicted thee, I afflict thee no more.
[13] And now I break his rod from off thee, And thy bands I do draw away.
[14] And commanded concerning thee hath Jehovah, ‘No more of thy name doth spread abroad, From the house of thy gods I cut off graven and molten image, I appoint thy grave, for thou hast been vile.
[15] Lo, on the mountains the feet of one proclaiming tidings, sounding peace! Celebrate, O Judah, thy festivals, complete thy vows, For add no more to pass over into thee doth the worthless, He hath been completely cut off!
