Who wrote the books of the Bible and when?

      Book of Nahum, about the oracle of Nahum the Elkoshite against the Assyrian capital of Nineveh, was written about the seventh century (663-612) B.C. by Nahum the phrophet. The Assyrians were destroyed in 612 B.C. after their destruction of Samaria, the capital of Israel, in 722 B.C., for the evils that Nahum lists against them. The Book of the Vision of Nahum includes: the Lord's vengeance against Nineveh; the destruction of Nineveh and restoration of Israel; Nineveh to prepare for disaster.

        This is what the Lord says: "Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be cut off and pass away. Although I have afflicted you, O Judah, I will afflict you no more. Now I will break their yoke from your neck and tear your shackles away." The Lord has given a command concerning you, Nineveh: "You will have no descendants to bear your name. I will destroy the carved images and cast idols that are in the temple of your gods. I will prepare your grave, for you are vile." (Nahum 1:12-14)
