    King James Bible - Nahum 2:3

    The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.

    World English Bible

    The shield of his mighty
    men is made red. The valiant men are in scarlet. The chariots flash with steel in the day of his preparation, and the pine spears are brandished.

    Douay-Rheims - Nahum 2:3

    The shield of his mighty
    men is like fire, the men of the army are clad in scarlet, the reins of the chariot are flaming in the day of his preparation, and the drivers are stupefied.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    The shield of his mighty
    men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir-trees shall be terribly shaken.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:3

    El escudo de sus valientes será bermejo, los varones de su ejército vestidos de grana; el carro como fuego de antorchas; el día que se aparejará, temblarán las hayas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nahum 2:3

    Verse 3. The
    shield of his mighty men is made red] These things may refer to the war-like preparations made by the Ninevites: they had red shields, and scarlet or purple clothing; their chariots were finely decorated, and proceeded with amazing rapidity.

    The fir trees shall be terribly shaken.] This may refer to the darts, arrows, and javelins, flung with destructive power.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. The shield of his mighty men is made red , etc.] The shields of the soldiers in the armies of the Babylonians and Medes, those dashers in pieces that would come up against Nineveh, should be red; either with the blood of the slain, or thus coloured on purpose to inject terror to their enemies; or this may express the lustre of them, which being gilded, or made of gold or brass, in the rays of the sun glittered, and looked of a fiery red; see the Apocrypha: ``Now when the sun shone upon the shields of gold and brass, the mountains glistered therewith, and shined like lamps of fire.” (1 Maccabees 6:39) the valiant men [are] in scarlet ; the generals and other officers of the army were clothed in scarlet; partly to show their greatness and nobleness, and partly to strike their enemies with terror, and to hide their blood should they be wounded, and so keep up their own spirits, and not encourage their enemies: the chariots [shall be] with flaming torches in the day of his preparation ; that is, when the Medes and Chaldeans, under their respective commander or commanders, shall prepare for the siege of the city, and to make their onset and attack upon it, the chariots used by them in war, which was common in those times, would have flaming torches in them; either to guide them in the night, or to set fire to houses or tents they should meet with, or to terrify the enemy: or “the chariots [shall be] as flaming torches” f55 ; they should run with such swiftness, that the wheels, being of iron, or cased with it, should strike fire upon the stones in such quantities, that they should look like torches flaming: and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken ; with the motion of the chariots; or this may be interpreted of spears and lances, and such like instruments of war, made of fir; which should be in such great numbers, and with so much activity used against the Ninevites, that it would look like shaking a forest of fir trees. The Targum interprets these of the great men and generals of their armies glittering in dyed garments; and Kimchi’s father, of the princes and great men of the city of Nineveh, who would be seized with terror, and reel about like drunken men; and so all that follows in the next verse ( Nahum 2:4).

    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!
