Bible: Zeph. 2:13-15
and destroy Assyria.
He will make Nineveh a heap of ruins;
it will be as barren 3 as the desert.
2:14 Flocks and herds 4 will lie down in the middle of it,
as well as every kind of wild animal. 5
Owls 6 will sleep in the tops of its support pillars;
they will hoot through the windows. 7
Rubble will cover the thresholds; 8
2:15 This is how the once-proud city will end up 11 –
the city that was so secure. 12
What a heap of ruins she has become, a place where wild animals live!
