Saint & Prophet Nahum

The month of December honors six different prophets, starting with Nahum (NAY-um) on December 1.  The name Nahum means "comforter" and that is what Nahum did for the people of Judah.  He gave them hope and comfort concerning their fears of the threatening nearby kingdom of Assyria.

The LORD is good,
a refuge on the day of distress.
-Nahum 1:7a
