The Scripture & the Sense

This is Daniel Whyte III with The Scripture & The Sense Podcast, where I read the Word of God and give the sense of it based on an authoritative commentary source such as the Bible Knowledge Commentary. This podcast is based upon Nehemiah 8:8 where it says Ezra and the Levites “read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.” The aim of this podcast is that through the simple reading of the Word of God and the giving of the sense of it, the church would be revived and the world would be awakened.

The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #633: Nahum 1:3-5

This is Daniel Whyte III president of Gospel Light Society International with The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #633, where I read the Word of God and give the sense of it based on an authoritative commentary source such as the Bible Knowledge Commentary or Matthew Henry Commentary. This podcast is based upon Nehemiah 8:8 where it says Ezra and the Levites “read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.” The aim of this podcast is that through the simple reading of the Word of God and the giving of the sense of it, the church would be revived and the world would be awakened.

Today we are reading Nahum 1:3-5.

3 The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

________

That was Nahum 1:3-5. Now here is the sense of it.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
Though God takes vengeance on His enemies, He is slow to anger, that is, He withholds His judgment for a long time. Such “length of anger” accounts for the apparent delay, from Judah’s perspective, which allowed Assyria to act in such lustful freedom. But this does not suggest that God is weak. He is long-suffering and patient because of His desire that people repent. This was exhibited in His sending Jonah to Nineveh, about 100 years before Nahum prophesied. Also the Lord is great in power. Though He may prolong His mercy, His omnipotence remains. The word for power is kōaḥ, which suggests the ability to endure or the capacity to produce, and from there comes the idea of the ability to cope with situations. That ability is seen in God’s acts of judgment. For, the prophet added, He will not leave the guilty unpunished. He would serve as the Ninevites’ Judge because of their guilt. He would not treat them as if they were innocent. Though the Ninevites had repented under Jonah’s preaching, the city had gone into iniquity again, and therefore would not escape His wrath. The greatness of God’s power is evident in His control over nature. Because He is powerful over inanimate nature, He certainly would be able to cope with and judge Nineveh. He causes the whirlwind and the threatening storm, two awesome and often destructive forces of nature. In His dealings with Nineveh, He would be as destructive as a devastating whirlwind and storm. He is so great that the clouds are like dust under His feet. “His strides cover the vast areas of extenuated clouds. His movements are marked by the darkening of the heavens as the whirlwind sweeps and the tempest howls.” In His power He merely speaks (rebukes) the sea, and the rivers dry up. This refers to His delivering Israel from Egyptian bondage. Since He could defeat Egypt in that way, certainly He is powerful enough to destroy Nineveh. Bashan, a region east of the Sea of Kinnereth (Galilee), Carmel, a mountain range near present-day Haifa, and Lebanon, north of Israel, were fertile areas. God’s ability to dry up verdant areas shows He could judge Nineveh. Even the mountains, symbolic of stability, shake under His power, as did Mount Sinai and the hills melt. Even the entire earth and its people, including the Ninevites, will tremble before His awesome power.

The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #632: Nahum 1:2

Today we are reading Nahum 1:2.

2 God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.

________

That was Nahum 1:2. Now here is the sense of it.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
The Lord is righteous in relation to His covenant people and in relation to her wicked oppressors. As a righteous God, He is jealous, that is, zealous to protect what belongs to Him, namely, Judah. He will allow no rivals. He is also an avenging God. This fact is strongly emphasized, for the word “avenging” occurs three times in this verse. God said, “It is Mine to avenge” and “I will take vengeance on My adversaries and repay those who hate Me”. God avenges His people in the sense that He champions their cause against their enemies. He does so because He is jealous or protective of His people. While God is avenging for or on behalf of His people, He is avenging against His adversaries. Judah’s enemies were His enemies. He is filled with wrath. Ḥēmâh, related to the verb meaning “to be hot,” speaks of God’s burning rage or intense fury against sin.

Today we are reading Nahum 1:1.

1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

________

That was Nahum 1:1. Now here is the sense of it.

The Matthew Henry Commentary reads:
About a hundred years before, at Jonah’s preaching, the Ninevites repented, and were spared, yet, soon after, they became worse than ever. Nineveh knows not that God who contends with her, but is told what a God he is. It is good for all to mix faith with what is here said concerning Him, which speaks great terror to the wicked, and comfort to believers. Let each take his portion from it: let sinners read it and tremble; and let saints read it and triumph. The anger of the Lord is contrasted with his goodness to his people. Perhaps they are obscure and little regarded in the world, but the Lord knows them. The Scripture character of Jehovah agrees not with the views of proud reasoners. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is slow to wrath and ready to forgive, but he will by no means acquit the wicked; and there is tribulation and anguish for every soul that doeth evil: but who duly regards the power of his wrath?

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
The book was an oracle against Nineveh. As an oracle it was a burden, a threatening message about Nineveh’s doom. It was a vision, that is, a message which the prophet “saw” mentally and spiritually. Nahum wrote that Nineveh’s end would certainly come. Because Nineveh had plotted against the Lord she would receive His wrath. Yet God remains a refuge for those who trust Him. Nineveh’s destruction would comfort Judah who had been afflicted by the Assyrian threat.

The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #630: Nahum

2 God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.

________

That was Nahum 1:2. Now here is the sense of it.

The FaithLife Study Bible reads:
Nahum can be divided into three parts. In the first, the prophet announces that Yahweh will take vengeance on Nineveh. This section includes a partial acrostic poem. The second section describes in poetic detail the fall of Nineveh at the hand of Yahweh. The final section presents a mocking song (a dirge), which portrays celebration over the fall of Nineveh and its king rather than lamentation. Nahum shows us that God will bring justice. Oppressors will be punished when God takes vengeance on behalf of the oppressed. He brings judgment not only on His own people, but also on all the nations. In Nahum, we see God’s anger toward evil and His desire to rid the world of it. He is not only the God of Israel, but of the whole world—he raises up and throws down nations. Nahum’s depiction of Nineveh contrasts with the city’s portrayal in the book of Jonah, where the people repent and receive mercy. Even though Nahum’s prophecies against Nineveh are grim, they come from a God who doesn’t anger easily. Nineveh had been given opportunities to turn from wickedness, but now the time has come for judgment. This judgment amounts to good news for the people of Judah, whom God promises to protect and restore. Judah and all the other nations that had been terrorized by the Assyrian armies cried out for justice, and God granted it. Nahum concludes his oracle with a message to the Assyrians: Everyone who hears of their downfall will applaud. As we seek justice, we should take comfort in knowing that oppression will not last forever. In the face of overwhelming injustice, God is still a refuge for those who trust in Him. Yahweh hears, and He will deliver.

Today we are reading Nahum 1:1.

1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

________

That was Nahum 1:1. Now here is the sense of it.

The FaithLife Study Bible reads:
The book of Nahum is a collection of prophetic oracles that proclaim the fall of Nineveh, a prominent city of the Assyrian Empire. Nahum poetically portrays Nineveh’s demise at the hands of the Babylonians. To do so, he employs images that are common in the Prophetic Books, such as devouring lions, shameless prostitutes, and swarming locusts. The book begins by describing its contents as an oracle concerning Nineveh—one that was received in a vision by Nahum of El-kosh. The name “Nahum” comes from the Hebrew verb meaning “comfort.” El-kosh, Nahum’s hometown, is not mentioned anywhere else in the Old Testament. However, Nahum was probably from Judah. Nineveh was one of the most prominent cities of the Assyrian Empire, which was renowned in the ancient world for its cruelty. The Old Testament records the Assyrians destroying and displacing the northern kingdom of Israel and repeatedly threatening the southern kingdom of Judah. The book of Jonah records an earlier time when the people of Nineveh expressed repentance, though it appears that this attitude of contrition was long gone by Nahum’s time. The text of Nahum most likely was written soon after 663 bc, when the Egyptian city of Thebes (theebz) fell to the Assyrian king A-shur-ban-i-pal. The prophet uses this event as an example of the destruction coming to Nineveh. After A-shur-ban-i-pal’s death in 627 bc, Assyria was weakened by a series of internal struggles. At the same time, Babylon grew stronger. In 612 bc Nineveh was conquered by a coalition of Babylonians and Medes (meedz). The weakened Assyrians then moved their capital to Har-ran. Eventually they allied with Egypt, and the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar defeated them again at the Battle of Carchemish (kar-ke-mish) in 605 bc. After this final defeat, they faded from the world stage. Within this turbulent context, Nahum delivers a message of justice.

18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.

19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
he author concluded his book by reminding himself and his readers about the goodness and uniqueness of their God. Micah’s final words of praise show that he had great faith in God’s eventual out-working of His plans for His covenant people. Today orthodox Jews read these verses in their synagogues on the Day of Atonement, after they read the Book of Jonah. The rhetorical question, Who is a God like You? may be a word-play on Micah’s name which means, “Who is like Yahweh?” The obvious answer is that no one is like the Lord. The remainder of Micah 7:18–20 describes what He is like. God’s acts on behalf of His people prove that He is completely trustworthy and merciful. Micah affirmed six things about God: (1) He pardons the sin and transgression of the remnant of His inheritance. (2) He does not stay angry forever and (3) He likes to show mercy. What encouragement these truths would have been for the godly remnant living in Israel’s corrupt society. Confident that (4) the Lord will again have compassion on Israel, Micah knew that (5) God would deal with her sins by, figuratively speaking, treading them under foot (subduing them as if they were enemies) and hurling them into the sea (thus completely forgiving them). Three Old Testament words for sin are used in Micah 7:18–19: sin, transgression, and iniquities. Micah knew God would do these things because (6) He is true (faithful) to Jacob and shows mercy to Abraham. God cannot lie; He is true to His Word and loyal to His commitments and His oath. Therefore Micah was trusting in God’s promises to Abraham, which were confirmed to Jacob, that He will bless their descendants. Israel’s peace and prosperity will be realized when the Messiah-King reigns. Christ will exercise justice over His and Israel’s opponents and He will extend grace to His own. This promise gave Micah confidence in his dark days and is also a source of comfort to believers today.

Thank you for listening to the Scripture & The Sense Podcast. Remember to read the Word of God each and every day and pray without ceasing to God for wisdom to understand it and apply it to your life. Most importantly, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Please stay tuned for a complete presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ so that you can get your soul saved from Hell to that wonderful place called Heaven when you die. May God bless you and keep you is my prayer.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 18:8: “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #627: Micah 7:16-17

This is Daniel Whyte III president of Gospel Light Society International with The Scripture & the Sense Podcast #627, where I read the Word of God and give the sense of it based on an authoritative commentary source such as the Bible Knowledge Commentary or Matthew Henry Commentary. This podcast is based upon Nehemiah 8:8 where it says Ezra and the Levites “read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.” The aim of this podcast is that through the simple reading of the Word of God and the giving of the sense of it, the church would be revived and the world would be awakened.

Today we are reading Micah 7:16-17.

16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.

17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.

________

That was Micah 7:16-17. Now here is the sense of it.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
When God miraculously regathers Israel the nations will see it and be ashamed for His power will be greater than theirs. Overwhelmed, they will be speechless and will refuse to hear about Israel’s victories. In humiliation they will lick the dust like snakes, and like animals coming out of their hiding places (dens) they will surrender to the Lord and will be fearful of Israel. These facts must have greatly encouraged the righteous remnant in Micah’s day.

15 According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things.

________

That was Micah 7:15. Now here is the sense of it.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
In response to the prophet’s request the Lord told the nation through Micah that a time would come when He would again be known as a miraculous God. When Israel came out of Egypt, God did wonders on her behalf, releasing her from Egypt, enabling her to cross the Red Sea on dry ground, and providing for her in the desert. Once again the nation will have a great “exodus” from its places of habitation and God will miraculously move the Israelites into their land. This will occur when the Messiah returns and sets up His millennial rule.

11 In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed.

12 In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain.

13 Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.

________

That was Micah 7:11-13. Now here is the sense of it.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
When Israel will be restored to her land in the Millennium, she will rebuild her walls and expand her boundaries. The word ‘Gaḏer’ means a wall around a vineyard, not around a city. Jerusalem, established in peace by the Messiah, will need no protective wall. Assyria and Egypt, enemies of Israel, will be inhabited by people who will travel to Jerusalem. In fact people from around the globe will go to Jerusalem to learn of and worship the Lord. Immediately before that glorious time, however, the nations, because of their sinful deeds, will be judged and therefore the earth will be desolate.

Today we are reading Micah 7:8-10.

8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.

9 I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.

10 Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the Lord thy God? mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.

________

That was Micah 7:8-10. Now here is the sense of it.

The Matthew Henry Commentary reads:
Those truly penitent for sin, will see great reason to be patient under affliction. When we complain to the Lord of the badness of the times, we ought to complain against ourselves for the badness of our hearts. We must depend upon God to work deliverance for us in due time. We must not only look to him, but look for him. In our greatest distresses, we shall see no reason to despair of salvation, if by faith we look to the Lord as the God of our salvation. Though enemies triumph and insult, they shall be silenced and put to shame. Though Zion’s walls may long be in ruins, there will come a day when they shall be repaired. Israel shall come from all the remote parts, not turning back for discouragements. Though our enemies may seem to prevail against us, and to rejoice over us, we should not despond. Though cast down, we are not destroyed; we may join hope in God’s mercy, with submission to his correction. No hinderances can prevent the favours the Lord intends for his church.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
The prophet, still speaking as a representative of the nation, expressed confidence in the fact that eventually God would reverse Israel’s sad situation. Though the nation was in a depressed condition and would go into captivity, the enemy should not gloat. Though the situation was dark, the Lord would be her light, and would bring her out of her desperate circumstances. In the words I have sinned Micah identified himself with the people’s sins. Because of their sins God’s wrath would be tolerated for it would be His means of bringing them into the light and establishing justice. When God once again establishes Israel in her own land, the tables will be turned and her enemy will be ashamed. The enemy (pagan nations) taunted Israel with the question, Where is the Lord your God? But God will vindicate His own, for Israel’s enemies will fall and be trampled.
