Nahum 2:1. He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face This is addressed to the city of Nineveh, and explains more fully how the change, described in the foregoing chapter, should be brought about. It begins with telling Nineveh, that he who should break down her walls, and discomfit her inhabitants, was coming against her, and was, as it were, already in sight. Keep the munition, watch the way Use thy utmost industry to defend thyself, by strengthening thy garrisons, and guarding the passes. Make thy loins strong Stir up all thy strength and courage. Fortify thy power mightily Increase thy forces as much as thou canst. The meaning of this is, that let the Ninevites take all the precautions they could, and strengthen themselves to the utmost, yet it would be all in vain.
