The siege and looting of the city: Plunder the silver! Plunder the gold! The supply is endless, the wealth from all its treasures! She is pillaged, plundered, stripped!
The flooding of the city and its results: The river gates are thrown open and the palace collapses.
The fall of Nineveh’s fortresses: All your fortresses are like fig trees with their first ripe fruit; when they are shaken, the figs fall into the mouth of the eater.
The sins for which Nineveh is judged: all because of the wanton lust of a prostitute, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft.

God will avenge evil and deliver His people. He defends His people against those who come against Him.
Nineveh was a violent and immoral city. It will be humbled and judged. It would be flooded, burned, and plundered.
