Nahum

1:1 "An oracle concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum of Elkosh."

There seems to be two separate intros here in the first verse, yet it seems a little redundant. The words oracle and vision are used, however, which make each statement its own. Oracle is the Hebrew word massa. It refers to a burdensome or weighty message a prophet would be "carrying." Vision is the Hebrew word chazown. It represents a prophet's entire message as it is written down after being received from God.

So, this introduction allows us to see two things:
  1. Nahum's message was heavy and burdensome to him.
  2. The message was a devine revelation given to him that he wrote down.
