God Takes Vengeance against His Enemies
1:2 The Lord is a zealous 1 and avenging 2 God;
the Lord is avenging and very angry. 3
The Lord takes vengeance 4 against his foes;
he sustains his rage 5 against his enemies.
Oracle of Judgment against the King of Nineveh
1:14 The Lord has issued a decree against you: 6
“Your dynasty will come to an end. 7
I will destroy the idols and images in the temples of your gods.
I will desecrate 8 your grave – because you are accursed!” 9
3:5 for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will open 1 and you will be like divine beings who know 2 good and evil.” 3
