Zephaniah 2:2-4 International Standard Version (ISV)
2 Before the decree is carried out,
before the day flies away like chaff,
before the fierce anger of the Lord visits you,
before the Day of the Lord’s wrath surprises you,
3 seek the Lord, all you humble people of the land,
who do what he commands.
Maybe you will be protected in the Day of the Lord’s anger.”
The Coming Destruction of Philistine Cities
4 “For Gaza will be forsaken,
and Ashkelon deserted—
Ashdod will be emptied at high noon;
even Ekron will be uprooted.
