I would like to ask someone to answer the following questions about Nahum 1. 1. To whom was the book of Nahum written? 2. Why is a dual comparison given (see verses 6-7, 14-15)? 3. What events does the book prophesy? 4. What nations are involved? 5. What is the overriding principle of the book of Nahum? I believe that only when you truly understand a Scriptural passage, can you then presume to give an application of it. Interpretation comes first, and then application. The thread below shows me that some interpretation is desperately needed here.
