    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:1

    ¶ ¡Ay de la ciudad de sangre, toda llena de mentira y de rapia, no se aparta de ella el robo!

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nahum 3:1

    Verse 1. Wo to the bloody city!]
    Nineveh: the threatenings against which are continued in a strain of invective, astonishing for its richness, variety, and energy. One may hear and see the whip crack, the horses prancing, the wheels rumbling, the chariots bounding after the galloping steeds; the reflection from the drawn and highly polished swords; and the hurled spears, like gashes of lightning, dazzling the eyes; the slain lying in heaps, and horses and chariots stumbling over them! O what a picture, and a true representation of a battle, when one side is broken, and all the cavalry of the conqueror fall in upon them, hewing them down with their swords, and trampling them to pieces under the hoofs of their horses! O! infernal war! Yet sometimes thou art the scourge of the Lord.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Woe to the bloody city , etc.]
    Nineveh, in which many murders were daily committed; innocent blood shed; the lives of men taken away, under the colour of justice, by false witnesses, and other unlawful methods; and which was continually making war with neighbouring nations, and shedding their blood, which it stuck not at, to enlarge its wealth and dominions; and therefore woe is denounced against it; and it is threatened with the righteous judgments of God, with all sorts of calamity and distress: or, O bloody city, as the Septuagint; for the word used is vocative, and expressive of calling, as Aben Ezra and Kimchi observe: it [is] all full of lies [and] robbery ; the palace and court; the houses of noblemen and common persons were full of flattery and deceit; men of high degree were a lie, and men of low degree vanity; no man could trust another, or believe what he said; there were no truth, honesty, and faithfulness, in conversation or commerce; their warehouses were full of goods, got by rapine and violence; and their streets full of robbers and robberies: the prey departeth not ; they go on in making a prey of their neighbours, in pillaging and plundering their substance; they repent not of such evil practices, nor desist from them; or because of the above sins they shall fall a prey to the enemy, who will not cease plundering them till he has utterly stripped them of all they have; and who is represented in the next verse ( Nahum 3:2) as just at hand.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - When
    proud sinners are brought down, others should learn not to lif themselves up. The fall of this great city should be a lesson to private persons, who increase wealth by fraud and oppression. They ar preparing enemies for themselves; and if the Lord sees good to punis them in this world, they will have none to pity them. Every man wh seeks his own prosperity, safety, and peace, should not only act in a upright, honourable manner, but with kindness to all.
