7 Now therefore, behold, the Lord is about to bring on them the strong and abundant waters of the Euphrates River, That is, the king of Assyria and all his glory; And it will rise over all its channels and go over all its banks.
24 The Lord of armies has sworn, saying, “Certainly, just as I have intended, so it has happened, and just as I have planned, so it will stand,25 to break Assyria in My land, and I will trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke will be removed from them, and his burden removed from their shoulders.26 This is the plan [a]devised against the entire earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out against all the nations.27 For the Lord of armies has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?”
Zephaniah 2:13-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 And He will stretch out His hand against the north And eliminate Assyria, And He will make Nineveh a desolation, Parched like the wilderness. 14 Flocks will lie down in her midst, [a]All animals that range in herds; Both the [b]pelican and the hedgehog Will spend their nights in [c]the tops of her pillars; [d]Birds will sing in the window, Devastation will be on the threshold; For He has uncovered the cedar work. 15 This is the presumptuous city That dwells securely, Who says in her heart, “I am, and there is no one besides me.” How she has become a desolation, A resting place for animals! Everyone who passes by her will [e]hiss And wave his hand in contempt.
Zephaniah 2:14Or All kinds of beasts in crowds; lit Every kind of beast of a nation
