Nahum 2:13 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Behold, I am against thee - Assyria, and Nineveh its capital. I will deal with you as you have dealt with others.

The voice of thy messengers - Announcing thy splendid victories, and the vast spoils taken - shall no more be heard - thou and thy riches, and ill-got spoils, shall perish together.
