Nahum is a prophetic book promising the freedom of Israel from Assyrian rule and the total destruction of Nineveh. In the first chapter, Nahum describes God as working in two important ways. The book begins with a repeated description of God as zealous and vengeful. The author emphasizes God's power over water, land, and people (1:4-5). Nahum then questions the wisdom of rebelling against God. (1:6, 9) The entire section culminates in the prophetic promise of the total destruction of the city of Nineveh. (1:12-14) Though the main focus is God's vengeance against Nineveh; it also emphasizes that God is slow to anger (v. 3), a refuge to his people (v. 7), and Good (v. 7). As whole, Nahum defends God's justice emphasizing his goodness and patience along with his demand for vengeance.
