Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nahum 1:6

_ _ fury is poured out like fire — like the liquid fire poured out of volcanoes in all directions (see Jeremiah 7:20).

_ _ rocks are thrown down — or, “are burnt asunder”; the usual effect of volcanic fire (Jeremiah 51:25, Jeremiah 51:56). As Hannibal burst asunder the Alpine rocks by fire to make a passage for his army [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Nahum 1:6

(g) Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

(g) If all creatures are at God's commandment, and none are able to resist his wrath, will man flatter himself, and think by any means to escape, when he provokes his God to anger?
