Judgment is pronounced against the King of Assyria, his worthless gods, and his worthless life.
14 The Eternal has sent this command about you, king of Nineveh.
Eternal One: You will have no descendants left to carry on your name.
I will destroy the things you have carved and cast with your own hands,
Idols you have made to fill the temples of your gods.
I will personally prepare your grave because you are totally despicable!
15 Look, here comes a runner across the mountains bringing good news, announcing peace!
Celebrate your festivals, people of Judah, and keep the promises you made.
Those wicked armies[a] of Nineveh will never invade you again.
He is utterly cut off.
- 1:15 Hebrew, Belial
