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.
Cause and Effect
1. What sorrow awaits Nineveh, the city of murder and lies! She is crammed with wealth and is never without victims.
2. Hear the crack of ships, the rumble of wheels! Horses' hooves pound, and chariots clatter wildly.
3. See the flashing swords and glittering spears as the charioteers charge past! There are countless casualties, heaps of bodies — so many bodies that people stumble over them.
All this because Nineveh, the beautiful and faithless city, mistress of deadly charms, enticed the nations with her beauty. She taught them all her magic, enchanting people everywhere.
5. "I am your enemy!" says the LORD Of Heaven's Armies. "And now I will lift your skirts and show all the earth your nakedness and shame.
6. I will cover you with filth and show the world how vile you really are.
7. All who see you will shrink back and say, ' Nineveh lies in ruins. Where are the mourners?' Does anyone regret your destruction?"
8. Are you any better than the city of Thebes, situated on the Nile River, surrounded by water? She was protected by the river on all sides, walled in by water.
9. Ethiopia and the land of Egypt gave unlimited assistance. The nations of Put and Libya were among her allies.
10. Yet Thebes fell, and her people were led away as captives.
Her babies were dashed to death against the stones of the streets. Soldiers threw dice to get Egyptian officers as servants. All their leaders were bound in chains.
