But Nahum dropped a couple of powerful verses on me that have stuck with me during my day (all quotes are from the Holman Christian Standard Bible):
The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will never leave the guilty unpunished. (1:3)
The Lord is good, a stronghold in a day of distress; He cares for those who take refuge in Him. (1:7)
These two verses certainly made it easier to read through this great Old Testament book.
