The Prophet Nahum had Elkesaeus (Elkosh) as his homeland, and was from the tribe
of Symeon; he is seventh in order among the twelve Minor Prophets He
prophesied during the time of Hezekias, after the destruction of Samaria
(721 years before Christ), but before the ten tribes were taken into
captivity; he prophesied against Nineveh, the capital of Assyria. His
name means "comforter." His book of prophecy is divided into three chapters.
Apolytikion in the Second Tone:
As we celebrate the memory of Thy Prophet Nahum, O Lord, through him
we beseech Thee to save our souls.
Kontakion in the Fourth Tone:
Thy pure heart, illumined by the Holy Spirit, was a sacred vessel of
resplendent prophecy, for thou didst see things far off as close
at hand. Hence we revere thee, blest Nahum most glorious.
