Nahum 3

3:1 Woe to the bloody city! it [is] all full of lies [and]
 robberies; the prey departeth not;
3:2 The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the
 wheels, and of the prancing horses, and of the bounding
3:3 The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword, and the
 glittering spear: and [there is] a multitude of slain, and a
 great number of carcasses; and [there is] no end of [their]
 corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
3:4 Because of the multitude of the lewd deeds of the
 well-favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth
 nations through her lewd deeds, and families through her
3:5 Behold, I [am] against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I
 will remove thy skirts upon thy face, and I will show the
 nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.
3:6 And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee
 vile, and will set thee as a gazing-stock.
3:7 And it shall come to pass, [that] all they that look upon
 thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who
 will bemoan her; whence shall I seek comforters for thee?
3:8 Art thou better than populous No, that was situated among
 the rivers, [that had] the waters around it, whose rampart
 [was] the sea, [and] her wall [was] from the sea?
3:9 Cush and Egypt [were] her strength, and [it was] infinite;
 Put and Lubim were thy helpers.
3:10 Yet [was] she carried away, she went into captivity: her
 young children also were dashed in pieces at the head of all
 the streets: and they cast lots for her honorable men, and all
 her great men were bound in chains.
3:11 Thou also shalt be drunken: thou shalt be hid, thou also
 shalt seek strength because of the enemy.
3:12 All thy strong holds [shall be like] fig-trees with the
 first ripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into
 the mouth of the eater.
3:13 Behold, thy people in the midst of thee [are] women: the
 gates of thy land shall be set wide open to thy enemies: the
 fire shall devour thy bars.
3:14 Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds:
 go into clay, and tread the mortar, make strong the brick-kiln.
3:15 There shall the fire devour thee; the sword shall cut thee
 off, it shall eat thee up like the canker-worm: make thyself
 many as the canker-worm, make thyself many as the locusts.
3:16 Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of
 heaven: the canker-worm spoileth, and flieth away.
3:17 Thy crowned [are] as the locusts, and thy captains as the
 great grasshoppers, which settle in the hedges in the cold day,
 [but] when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is
 not known where they [are].
3:18 Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall
 dwell [in the dust]: thy people are scattered upon the
 mountains, and no man gathereth [them].
3:19 [There is] no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous:
 all that hear the fame of thee shall clap the hands over thee:
 for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
