Nineveh once had responded to the preaching of Jonah and turned from their evil ways to serve the Lord God Jehovah. But 150 years later, Nineveh returned to idolatry, violence and arrogance. Once again God sends one of His prophets to Nineveh preaching judgment in the destruction of the city and exhorting them to repentance. Sadly, the Ninevites did not heed Nahum's warning and the city was brought under the dominion of Babylon.

Nahum in the Hebrew means "Consoler" or "Comforter".
