Zephaniah 2:8 - 2:11

“I have heard the reproach of Moab
And the revilings of the sons of Ammon,
With which they have reproached My people
And magnified themselves against their territory.
Therefore, as I live,” declares Yahweh of hosts,
The God of Israel,
“Surely Moab will be like Sodom
And the sons of Ammon like Gomorrah—
A place possessed by nettles and salt pits,
And a perpetual desolation.
The remnant of My people will plunder them,
And the remainder of My nation will inherit them.”
10 This they will have in return for their pride because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of Yahweh of hosts. 11 Yahweh will be fearsome to them, for He will starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place.
