Bible: Zeph 3:9-13

3:9 Know for sure that I will then enable

the nations to give me acceptable praise. 1 

All of them will invoke the Lord’s name when they pray, 2 

and will worship him in unison. 3 

3:10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, 4 

those who pray to me 5  will bring me tribute.

3:11 In that day you 6  will not be ashamed of all your rebelliousness against me, 7 

for then I will remove from your midst those who proudly boast, 8 

and you will never again be arrogant on my holy hill.

3:12 I will leave in your midst a humble and meek group of people, 9 

and they will find safety in the Lord’s presence. 10 

3:13 The Israelites who remain 11  will not act deceitfully.

They will not lie,

and a deceitful tongue will not be found in their mouth.

Indeed, they will graze peacefully like sheep 12  and lie down;

no one will terrify them.”
