Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
A simple strategy: Building Blocks
11. And you, Nineveh, will also stagger like a drunkard. You will hide for fear of the attacking enemy.
12. All your fortresses will fall. They will be devoured like the ripe figs that fall into the mouths of those who shake the trees,
13. Your troops will be as weak and helpless as women. The gates of your land will be opened wide to the enemy and set on fire and burned.
14. Get ready for the siege! Store up water! Strengthen the defenses! Go into the pits to trample clay, and pack it into molds, making bricks to repair the walls.
15. But the fire will devour you; the sword will cut you down. The enemy will consume you like locusts, devouring everything they see. There will be no escape, even if you multiply like swarming locusts.
16. Your merchants have multiplied until they outnumber the stars. But like a swarm of locusts, they strip the land and fly away.
17. Your guards and officials are also like swarming locusts that crowd together in the hedges on a cold day. But like locusts that fly away when the sun comes up, all of them will fly away and disappear.
18. Your shepherds are asleep, O Assyrian king; your princes lie dead in the dust. Your people are scattered across the mountains with no one to gather them together.
19. There is no healing for your wound; your injury is fatal.
All who hear of your destruction will clap their hands for joy. Where can anyone be found who has not suffered from your continual cruelty?
