SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:5 Heme aquí contra ti, dice el SEÑOR de los ejércitos, y descubriré tus faldas en tu cara, y mostraré a los gentiles tu desnudez, y a los reinos tu vergí¼enza.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nahum 3:5 Verse 5. I will discover thy skirts upon thy face] It was an ancient, though not a laudable custom, to strip prostitutes naked, or throw their clothes over their heads, and expose them to public view, and public execration. This verse alludes to such a custom.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. Behold, I [am] against thee, saith the Lord of hosts , etc.] Because her doings were against him; (see Gill on “Na 2:13”): and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face ; turn up the skirts of her garments over her head, and thereby discover what should be concealed, than which nothing is more disagreeable and abominable to modest persons; it is here threatened she should be used in character as a harlot, or as women oftentimes are by rude soldiers, when a city is taken by them: and I will show the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame ; all her charms shall be taken away, and she become odious as a harlot to her former lovers; all her impostures, arts, and tricks, and shameful actions, will be discovered; and her aims and views at universal monarchy will be seen and her weakness to effect it made to appear; and, upon the whole, will become the object of the scorn and derision of kingdoms and nations.
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.
