    King James Bible - Nahum 2:1

    He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

    World English Bible

    He who dashes in pieces has come up against you. Keep the fortress!
    Watch the way! Strengthen your waist! Fortify your power mightily!

    Douay-Rheims - Nahum 2:1

    He is come up that shall destroy before thy face, that shall keep the siege:
    watch the way, fortify thy loins, strengthen thy power exceedingly.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition,
    watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1

    ¶ Subió destruidor contra ti; guarda la fortaleza, mira el camino, fortifica los lomos, fortalece mucho la fuerza.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nahum 2:1

    Verse 1. He that dasheth in pieces] Or scattereth. The Chaldeans and Medes.

    Keep the munition] Guard the fenced places. From this to the end of the fifth verse, the preparations made at Nineveh to repel their enemies are described. The description is exceedingly picturesque.

    Watch the way] By which the enemy is most likely to approach.

    Make thy loins strong] Take courage.

    Fortify thy power] Muster thy troops; call in all thy allies.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face , etc.] O Nineveh, or land of Assyria; for this is not to be understood of Sennacherib’s coming up against Jerusalem, as Kimchi; but of Nebuchadnezzar against Nineveh, as Aben Ezra; not Nebuchadnezzar the great, who, the Jewish chronologers say f51 , took Nineveh in the first year of his reign; but his father, Nebuchadnezzar the first, called Nabopolassar, who, with Cyaxares or Ahasuerus the Mede, joined their forces against Nineveh, and took it, see the Apocrypha: “But before he died he heard of the destruction of Nineve, which was taken by Nabuchodonosor and Assuerus: and before his death he rejoiced over Nineve.” (Tobit 14:15) and these together, the Chaldeans and Medes, are the “dasher in pieces”; or, “the hammer” f52 , as the word may be rendered; and so Babylon, over which one of these kings reigned, is called the hammer of the whole earth, ( Jeremiah 50:23) these came up openly, boldly, to the face of the king of Assyria, attacked him in his metropolis, not fearing his strength and numbers: keep the munition ; this and what follow are spoken ironically to the Assyrian king, and inhabitants of Nineveh, to take care of their towers and garrisons, and fortify them, and fill them with soldiers: and watch the way ; in which the enemy came; secure the passes and avenues that lead to their city; stop his march, and prevent his access: make [thy] loins strong ; put on armour, gird on the sword, prepare for war: fortify [thy] power mightily ; increase thine army, exert all thy strength and courage, and do all that is in thy power to do, to oppose the enemy, and defend thyself; and when all is done, it will be in vain.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 -
    Nineveh shall not put aside this judgment; there is no counsel of strength against the Lord. God looks upon proud cities, and brings the down. Particular account is given of the terrors wherein the invadin enemy shall appear against Nineveh. The empire of Assyria is represented as a queen, about to be led captive to Babylon. Guilt in the conscience fills men with terror in an evil day; and what wil treasures or glory do for us in times of distress, or in the day of wrath? Yet for such things how many lose their souls!
