The book of Nahum is unique in that the prophet’s message is not directed toward Israel or Judah but solely to a foreign city—Nineveh. God’s mercy had led him to send a reluctant Jonah to Nineveh so that the city might be spared divine judgment. The city that had once responded to God’s warning now has abandoned Him and earned His righteous punishment. The brief book of Nahum gives us a powerful revelation of God’s character, which is the key to understanding His response to human sin.
