The New Student's Reference Work/Nahum

Na′hum, the seventh of the minor prophets.  His book is inscribed The Burden of Nineveh, the book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.  Students have dated this prophecy between the fall of Thebes (666 B. C.), which is mentioned, and 606 B. C., the date of the destruction of Nineveh.  Of Nahum’s personal history nothing is known.
