Nahum

Nahum 3:10-11

10 When the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, the priests stood in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise the Lord, according to the ordinance of David king of Israel. 11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord:

“For He is good,
For His mercy endures forever toward Israel.”
Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.



With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord:
They sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord:

“He is good; His love toward Israel endures forever.”
“For He is good, for His lovingkindness, mercy toward Israel endures forever.”

Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.



The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.
The Lord is good, a strength and stronghold in the day of trouble.

He cares for those who trust in Him.
He knows, recognizes, cares for, and understands fully those who take refuge and trust in Him.
