Zephaniah 2:14-1514 aHerds shall lie down in her midst,
all kinds of beasts; ▼
▼Hebrew beasts of every nation
ceven the owl and the hedgehog ▼
▼The identity of the animals rendered owl and hedgehog is uncertain
shall lodge in her capitals;
a voice shall hoot in the window;
devastation will be on the threshold;
for eher cedar work will be laid bare.
15This is the exultant city
fthat lived securely,
that said in her heart,
“I am, and there is no one else.”
What a desolation she has become,
ga lair for wild beasts!
hEveryone who passes by her
hisses and ishakes his fist.
