Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 1:12-14.


Nahum 1:14

_ _ that no more of thy name be sown — that no more of thy seed, bearing thy name, as kings of Nineveh, be propagated; that thy dynasty become extinct, namely, on the destruction of Nineveh here foretold; “thee” means the king of Assyria.

_ _ will I cut off ... graven image — The Medes under Cyaxares, the joint destroyers of Nineveh with the Babylonians, hated idolatry, and would delight in destroying its idols. As the Assyrians had treated the gods of other nations, so their own should be treated (2 Kings 19:18). The Assyrian palaces partook of a sacred character [Layard]; so that “house of thy gods” may refer to the palace. At Khorsabad there is remaining a representation of a man cutting an idol to pieces.

_ _ I will make thy grave — rather, “I will make it (namely, ‘the house of thy gods,’ that is, ‘Nisroch’) thy grave” (2 Kings 19:37; Isaiah 37:38). Thus, by Sennacherib’s being slain in it, Nisroch’s house should be defiled. Neither thy gods, nor thy temple, shall save thee; but the latter shall be thy sepulchre.

_ _ thou art vile — or, thou art lighter than due weight (Daniel 5:27; compare Job 31:6) [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 1:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nahum 1:14

Thee — Thee, Sennacherib, and the whole kingdom of Assyria. Be sown — None shall bear thy name, and title; but thy kingdom shall be swallowed up.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee, [that] no more of thy name be (o) sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile.

(o) Meaning, Sennacherib, who would have no more children, but be slain in the house of his gods; (2 Kings 19:36-37).
