Nahum 3

v. 18-19

"O king of Assyria, your shepherds slumber;
your nobles lie down to rest.
Your people are scattered on the mountains
with no one to gather them.

Nothing can heal your wound;
your injury is fatal.
Everyone who hears the news about you
claps his hands at your fall,
for who has not felt
you endless cruelty?"

Summary of Nahum
according to commentary

No power on earth can protect us from God's judgment
or be a suitable substitute for his power in our lives.
Look at these lessons in history
they show historical proof that
corrupt power will be powerfully destroyed.
Don't insist on learning through personal experience,
instead , learn the lessons history has aready taught.
Put your trust in God above all else.
