Zephaniah 1:12; Zephaniah 2:11; Zephaniah 3:4; Zephaniah 3:6
"It will come about at that time That I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And I will punish the men Who are stagnant in spirit, Who say in their hearts, 'The LORD will not do good or evil!'
The LORD will be terrifying 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.
Her prophets are reckless, treacherous men; Her priests have profaned the sanctuary. They have done violence to the law.
"I have cut off nations; Their corner towers are in ruins. I have made their streets desolate, With no one passing by; Their cities are laid waste, Without a man, without an inhabitant.
