Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nahum 3:19

_ _ bruit — the report.

_ _ clap the hands — with joy at thy fall. The sole descendants of the ancient Assyrians and Babylonians in the whole country are the Nestorian Christians, who speak a Chaldean language [Layard].

_ _ upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually? — implying God’s long forbearance, and the consequent enormity of Assyria’s guilt, rendering her case one that admitted no hope of restoration.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 3:8-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nahum 3:19

Shall clap the hands — Insulting and rejoicing. Thy wickedness — Thy tyranny, pride, oppression and cruelty; treading down and trampling upon them.
