Zephaniah 2:2-4 Modern English Version (MEV)

before the decree takes effect,
    before the day passes like chaff,
before the fierce anger of the Lord comes upon you,
    before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you.
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
    who carry out His judgment.
Seek righteousness, seek humility.
    Perhaps you will be hidden
    on the day of the Lord’s anger.

For Gaza will be forsaken,
    and Ashkelon a desolation;
Ashdod will be driven out at noon,
    and Ekron will be uprooted.

Zephaniah 2:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

before the decree takes effect
    and that day passes like windblown chaff,
before the Lord’s fierce anger
    comes upon you,
before the day of the Lord’s wrath
    comes upon you.
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
    you who do what he commands.
Seek righteousness, seek humility;
    perhaps you will be sheltered
    on the day of the Lord’s anger.

Philistia

Gaza will be abandoned
    and Ashkelon left in ruins.
At midday Ashdod will be emptied
    and Ekron uprooted.
