      Book of Nahum was written for the decline of Assyria sometime between B.C, merely before their downfall at the hands of the Babylonians and almost years after the events in the book of Jonah. Nineveh had turned from its repentant attitude shown during times of Jonah and had taken the northern kingdom of Israel into captivity. As predicted, in both the bible and the book of Nahum, the Fall of Nineveh was caused by the flooding of the Tigris River. The "overflowing" waters from the flood destroyed buildings near the waterside, however the city was not directly destroyed due to the floods, the major affect the river flooding had on Nineveh was the consequences to.

      NINEVEH'S HISTORY "The oracle of Ninevah. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite." (NAHUM ). Ninevah had a policy of world conquest and domination. A part of their plans included God's chosen people, Israel and Judah. The Scriptures relate to us how both Israel and Judah fell away from God. The book contains the "vision of Nahum", whose name means "comfort" and is related to the name Nehemiah, meaning "The Lord comforts" or "comfort of the Lord." (Nineveh's fall, which is Nahum's theme, would bring comfort to Judah.) Nothing is known about him except his hometown (Elkosh), and even its general location is uncertain.

      The Fall of Nineveh is a long poem. It consists of the Prelude and thirty books. It comprises over than six hundred pages and more than twenty thousand lines. Because of that it is one of the longest epic poems in English and European literature. Nineveh was the capital city of the Assyrian empire. It was really destroyed in B.C. Book of Nahum, the seventh of 12 Old Testament books that bear the names of the Minor Prophets (grouped together as The Twelve in the Jewish canon). The title identifies the book as an “oracle concerning Nineveh” and attributes it to the “vision of Nahum of Elkosh.” The fall of Nineveh, the capital.
