Against the Assyrians (Nah 1:11-1:11)

To the Assyrians

“From you,

One has gone out

Who plots evil

Against Yahweh.

He counsels wickedness.”

In this prophecy, Nahum warned the Assyrians against the one who was plotting evil and counseling wickedness.  This one might be King Sennacherib, the king of Assyria from 705-681 BCE.
