Nahum 2

2:1 He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep
 the munition, watch the way, make [thy] loins strong, fortify
 [thy] power mightily.
2:2 For the LORD hath turned away the excellence of Jacob, as
 the excellence of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them
 out, and marred their vine branches.
2:3 The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men
 [are] in scarlet: the chariots [shall be] with flaming torches
 in the day of his preparation, and the fir-trees shall be
 terribly shaken.
2:4 The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall jostle
 one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like
 torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
2:5 He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their
 walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the
 defense shall be prepared.
2:6 The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace
 shall be dissolved.
2:7 And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought
 up, and her maids shall lead [her] as with the voice of doves,
 tabering upon their breasts.
2:8 But Nineveh [is] of old like a pool of water: yet they shall
 flee away. Stand, stand, [shall they cry]; but none shall look
2:9 Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: for
 [there is] no end of the store [and] glory out of all the
 pleasant furniture.
2:10 She is empty, and void, and waste: and the heart melteth,
 and the knees smite together, and much pain [is] in all loins,
 and the faces of them all gather blackness.
2:11 Where [is] the dwelling of the lions, and the feeding-place
 of the young lions, where the lion, [even] the old lion,
 walked, [and] the lion's whelp, and none made [them] afraid?
2:12 The lion tore in pieces enough for his whelps, and
 strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey,
 and his dens with ravin.
2:13 Behold, I [am] against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I
 will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour
 thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth,
 and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.
