KJV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
November 18
Nahum 1:3
3 “The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.”
Read Nahum 1

*Nahum is of course one of the so-called 12 Minor Prophets, but nothing “minor” here!  Here in these three chapters we have the prophetic of the “oracles of God’s judgment, with NO oracles of redemption or blessing, though a future restoration of Judah is indicated in passing.” Here God is the metaphor of the Divine Warrior!  Some call this Book “War Poetry.”

“The moral theme is: the holiness of Jehovah which must deal with sin in judgment.” (Scofield)
