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)
