Sample text

The spectacle of naked horror is followed by the defilement of “filth” (NRSV) or “loathsome things” (JPS), which can also be translated as “excrement” (Lehrman 1948: 204). Nineveh’s punishment contains a series of disturbing images of sexual violence used to describe Nineveh the prostitute’s “punishment by a vengeful God” (Koperski 2002: 473). Nahum’s portrayal of a deity who punishes by means of sexual violence against a target likened to a prostitute has evoked strong criticism from contemporary interpreters, especially feminists and those sympathetic to their approaches (Magdalene 1995: 326–52; cf.

5:1–7; Ps. 80:8–13). 2:3. Nahum’s oracle pictures the shatterer’s warriors at the gates of Nineveh, dressed in red and carrying “red” shields. The color “red” has been interpreted in various ways: stained with blood, as an apotropaic measure, or as a kind of psychological warfare to boost the morale of the troops and cause panic among the enemy (Rudolph 1975: 170). 4; cf. Gen. 25:30; 32:3–4 [32:4–5 MT] with a play on the word “Edom” [Heb. ’a¯do¯m “red”] in 25:25 and 30). indd 27 6/9/2011 2:57:35 PM 28 Nahum they “were exceptionally strong, and had no qualms about risking even fire” on the battlefield (FC 108, Theodore 2004: 256).

2:13–15). Now the walls of the pool are broken, the water is unstoppable. 2:9. The NRSV places this verse in quotation marks to indicate a change of the speaker, and it repeats the words of the victor who sacks the city. Concerning the wealth (Heb. ka¯bo¯d, usually meaning “glory, honor”) being plundered, Genesis Rabbah finds clarification of the Hebrew word in Gen. 12). Theodoret reads the verse as meaning that “what [Nineveh] had wrongly amassed … will be handed over to others” (2006: 184). 2:10.
