Zephaniah 2:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 The Lord shall inspire them with terror
    when he makes all the gods of earth waste away;
Then the distant shores of the nations,
    each from its own place,
    shall bow down to him.

12 You too, O Cushites,[a]
    shall be slain by the sword of the Lord.
13 He will stretch out his hand against the north,
    to destroy Assyria;
He will make Nineveh a waste,
    dry as the desert.
