Nahum 3:7

_ _ all ... that look upon thee — when thou hast been made “a gazing stock” (Nahum 3:6).

_ _ shall flee from thee — as a thing horrible to look upon. Compare “standing afar off,Revelation 18:10.

_ _ whence shall I seek comforters for thee? — Compare Isaiah 51:19, which Nahum had before his mind.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nahum 3:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nahum 3:7

Shall flee — With loathing and abhorrence. Will bemoan — Whose bowels will be moved for her that had no bowels for any one.
