Nahum: Consolation, the seventh of the so-called minor prophets, an
Elkoshite. All we know of him is recorded in the book of his
prophecies. He was probably a native of Galilee, and after the
deportation of the ten tribes took up his residence in Jerusalem.
Others think that Elkosh was the name of a place on the east bank of
the Tigris, and that Nahum dwelt there.
