Zephaniah 2:13-15 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

13 The Lord will use his power against the north and destroy Assyria.
    He will turn Nineveh into a deserted ruin,
        a dried up wasteland like the desert.
14     Flocks will lie down in it along with animals of every kind.
    Even pelicans and herons will nest on top of its columns.
    Listen! A bird will sing in a window.
    The doorway will be in ruins,
        because the Lord will expose the cedar beams.
15     Is this the arrogant city?
    Is this the city that used to live securely,
        the city that used to think to itself,
            “I’m the only one, and no one else exists but me”?
    What a wasteland it is now, a resting place for wild animals!
    All who pass by it will hiss and make an obscene gesture.
