Nahum 1:1
  The oracle of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

Nahum 1:13
  "So now, I will break his yoke bar from upon you, And I will tear off your shackles."

  The LORD has issued a command concerning you: "Your name will no longer be perpetuated. I will cut off idol and image From the house of your gods. I will prepare your grave, For you are contemptible."
   
Nahum 1:15
  Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings good news, Who announces peace! Celebrate your feasts, O Judah; Pay your vows. For never again will the wicked one pass through you; He is cut off completely.
