The Causal כִּי Clause in Nahum 2:2[3]

In the book of Nahum, the Lord delivers an oracle against the Assyrians, one of Israel’s primary enemies. The book is chocked full of woes and curses on Assyria due to the devastation they caused to their neighbors, including Israel. However, in Nahum 2:2[3], we get a כִּי clause that provides the ground or reason for why the Lord will destroy Assyria.
