My comments below. As a convenience to those who are going just skip over the passage here I put the verses in blue. Please notice the words underlined. Nahum 1:1 - 11. 1 The burden against Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite. 2 God is jealous, and the LORD avenges; The LORD avenges and is furious. The LORD will take vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves wrath for His enemies; 3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked. The LORD has His way In the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet. 4 He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, And dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel wither, And the flower of Lebanon wilts. 5 The mountains quake before Him, The hills melt, And the earth heaves at His presence, Yes, the world and all who dwell in it. 6 Who can stand before His indignation? And who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire, And the rocks are thrown down by Him. 7 The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him. 8 But with an overflowing flood He will make an utter end of its place, And darkness will pursue His enemies. 9 What do you conspire against the LORD? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time. 10 For while tangled like thorns, And while drunken like drunkards, They shall be devoured like stubble fully dried. 11 From you comes forth one Who plots evil against the LORD, A wicked counselor. The reason I gave this post the title I did is because, like JesusFan and several others here, I too am waiting for these events that literally did not happen: Hills did not melt yet. The Ninevites did not get burned up like stubble. The sea was not made dry. The rivers were not made dry. Clearly these events are still coming. I guess, first, the Ninevites will have to return to their physical land - just like the Jews. Actually, these events happened long time ago. To a people who no longer exist. Why is it so hard for Futurists to understand that the same Bible, using the same kind of imagery in Zechariah and Revelation, is to be understood in the same manner? I know why. They are committed to a system. They seem to honor that system (dispensationalism) more than they honor the Bible.
