No one can stand against God’s anger. Instead, one should seek refuge in God. “Against God” is a posture of death.
Prophet who condemned Judah's infidelity to God, warned of Babylonian conquest, and promised a new covenant More 10:10 asserts, “At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation.” Nahum works within the same theological frame. In poetic depiction, both nature and political forces respond to the approach of God in judgment (Prophet to the northern kingdom who condemned Israel's oppression of the poor, calling for justice to "roll down like waters." More 1:2). This is not a time for presumptuousness. “Silence” might be most appropriate (Amos 8:3; Zephaniah 1:7; Zechariah 2:13). A psalm is a song of praise. In the Old Testament 150 psalms comprise the psalter, although some of the psalms are laments and thanksgivings. In the New Testament early Christians gathered to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. More 90:11 makes the same point from a different angle. Judah was the name of Jacob's fourth son and one of the 12 tribes. More has felt this affliction and is in no position to presume it can stand before the indignation of the Lord (1:12). Only God can create the refuge from God’s own anger (1:7, 12).
