Nahum was a prophet (holy
man). He wrote about a country which was an enemy of Israel,
The people in Nineveh
were very evil (Nahum 3:1).
The people from Nineveh were also cruel
to the people in other countries. But God cares about the people who trust him
(Nahum 1:7). So, God would send the enemies of Nineveh
to destroy Nineveh.
God would end Nineveh's cruelty. But
God would help his own people, Israel.
would become a great nation again (Nahum 1:15).
The Book of Nahum is in the
Bible (Old Testament).
