As part of our Bible Studies at Sydney Uni this semester we are exploring the Minor Prophets. This week we learned more about the book of Nahum which is a collection of poems announcing the downfall of Assyria, one of Israel's worst oppressors.
"The Lord is good,
a stronghold in a day of trouble;
he protects those who take refuge in him,
even in a rushing flood."
Nahum, 1:2 (NRSV)
