SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:10 Porque como espinas entretejidas, mientras se embriagarán los borrachos, serán consumidos del fuego, como las estopas llenas de sequedad.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nahum 1:10 Verse 10. While they be folden together] However united their counsels may be, they shall be as drunken men-perplexed and unsteady in all their resolutions; and before God's judgments they shall be as dry thorns before a devouring fire.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. For while [they be] folden together [as] thorns , etc.] Like them, useless and unprofitable, harmful and pernicious, fit only for burning, and, being bundled together, are prepared for it; and which is not only expressive of the bad qualities of the Ninevites, and of the danger they were in, and what they deserved; but of the certainty of their ruin, no more being able to save themselves from it, than a bundle of thorns from the devouring fire: and while they are drunken [as] drunkards ; dead drunk, no more able to help themselves than a drunken man that is fallen; or who were as easily thrown down as a drunken man is with the least touch; though there is no need to have recourse to a figurative sense, since the Ninevites were actually drunk when they were attacked by their enemy, as the historian relates f33 ; that the king of Assyria being elated with his fortune, and thinking himself secure, feasted his army, and gave them large quantities of wine; and while the whole army were indulging themselves, the enemy, having notice of their negligence and drunkenness by deserters, fell upon them unawares in the night, when disordered and unprepared, and made a great slaughter among them, and forced the rest into the city, and in a little time took it: they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry ; as easily, and as inevitably and irrecoverably.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-15 - There is a great deal plotted against the Lord by the gates of hell and against his kingdom in the world; but it will prove in vain. With some sinners God makes quick despatch; and one way or other, he wil make an utter end of all his enemies. Though they are quiet, and man very secure, and not in fear, they shall be cut down as grass and corn when the destroying angel passes through. God would hereby work grea deliverance for his own people. But those who make themselves vile by scandalous sins, God will make vile by shameful punishments. The tidings of this great deliverance shall be welcomed with abundant joy These words are applied to the great redemption wrought out by our Lor Jesus and the everlasting gospel, Ro 10:15. Christ's ministers ar messengers of good tidings, that preach peace by Jesus Christ. Ho welcome to those who see their misery and danger by sin! And the promise they made in the day of trouble must be made good. Let us be thankful for God's ordinances, and gladly attend them. Let us loo forward with cheerful hope to a world where the wicked never can enter and sin and temptation will no more be known __________________________________________________________________
