a book of the Bible bearing his name.
Abbreviation: Nah.
noun (Old Testament)
a Hebrew prophet of the 7th century bc
the book containing his oracles

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.
