In the second chapter of Nahum, we see the utter destruction of Nineveh described as if it is happening before our very eyes. Nahum's descriptions are both graphic and emotional, causing us to realize the gravity of the Assyrian's sins. It’s easy to become desensitized to the violence and evil in the world, but Nahum reminds us that there are consequences for wickedness. Ultimately, the chapter teaches us that God is just and fair in His dealings and won't let evil go unpunished. As readers, we feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that the wicked are being held accountable for their actions.
