Nahum 3:1-7 New International Version

3 1  Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims! 2  The crack of whips, the clatter of wheels, galloping horses and jolting chariots! 3  Charging cavalry, flashing swords and glittering spears! Many casualties, piles of dead, bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses- 4  all because of the wanton lust of a prostitute, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft. 5  "I am against you," declares the Lord Almighty. "I will lift your skirts over your face. I will show the nations your nakedness and the kingdoms your shame. 6  I will pelt you with filth, I will treat you with contempt and make you a spectacle. 7  All who see you will flee from you and say, 'Nineveh is in ruins-who will mourn for her?' Where can I find anyone to comfort you?"
