Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nahum 3:5

_ _ I will discover thy skirts upon thy face — that is, discover thy nakedness by throwing up thy skirts upon thy face (the greatest possible insult), pulling them up as high as thy head (Jeremiah 13:22; Ezekiel 16:37-41). I will treat thee not as a matron, but as a harlot whose shame is exposed; her gaudy finery being lifted up off her (Isaiah 47:2, Isaiah 47:3). So Nineveh shall be stripped of all her glory and defenses on which she prides herself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 3:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nahum 3:5

Discover — l will strip thee naked, and deal with thee as inhuman soldiers deal with captive women.
