Comfort Food for the Soul

Little is known about the minor prophet named Nahum. His name means “comforter”. And he has a comforting theology – God is presented as a God who will punish evil but will protect those who trust in Him:

“The LORD does not easily become angry, but he is powerful and never lets the guilty go unpunished.”

“The LORD is good; he protects his people in times of trouble; he takes care of those who turn to him.”
