Zephaniah 2:13-15 New Life Version (NLV)
13 He will put out His hand against the north and destroy Assyria. And He will destroy Nineveh, making it a waste land like the desert. 14 Flocks will lie down in it, all the animals of the field. The pelican and the hedgehog will live in the tops of its pillars. Birds will sing in the window. And the doorways will be broken down. The pieces of cedar will not be covered. 15 This is the city that is full of joy and takes it easy and thinks it is safe. It says to itself, “I am, and there is no one else.” How it has become a waste, a resting place for animals! All who pass by will make fun of her and laugh at her shaking their hands.
