Foretold: Zephaniah Chapter 2, the Bible

13 And He will stretch out His hand against the north,
Destroy Assyria,
And make Nineveh a desolation,
As dry as the wilderness.
14 The herds shall lie down in her midst,
Every beast of the nation.
Both the pelican and the bittern
Shall lodge on the capitals of her pillars;
Their voice shall sing in the windows;
Desolation shall be at the threshold;
For He will lay bare the cedar work.
15 This is the rejoicing city
That dwelt securely,
That said in her heart,
“I am it, and there is none besides me.”
How has she become a desolation,
A place for beasts to lie down!
Everyone who passes by her
Shall hiss and shake his fist.

Fulfilled: Seeing is Believing

Reaching the zenith of power in the 7th century BC, Assyria ultimately fell before the combined armies of Babylon and the Medes. The capital city of Nineveh was destroyed in 612 BC, her massive carved images buried in the earth with the ravages of time – precisely as the Bible foretold over 2,600 years ago.

Nineveh was unequalled in size by all other ancient cities with walls 100 feet high and 50 feet thick. Three chariots could ride abreast on top of the walls.

The combined armies of Babylon and Medes attacked Assyria beginning in 614 BC and sacked the capital Nineveh in 612 BC reducing the city to a pile of debris. 

Assyria passed into the pages of history with her massive carved images buried in the earth.
