Nahum 1‑3
Final judgment on haughty Nineveh, (within a century, B.C. 606), about 256 years after its being spared in the days of Jonah. Thus this ancient city of Nimrod and capital of Assyria (over 1500 years old) was utterly destroyed, So too in the last days the destroying Assyrians will be destroyed and but few spared, (Isaiah 19:23-2523In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. 24In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: 25Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance. (Isaiah 19:23‑25)). But to “them that trust in the Lord” will be exceptional blessings.
B.C. 713.
