Zephaniah 3:14

Context

3:14 Shout for joy, Daughter Zion! 1 

Shout out, Israel!

Be happy and boast with all your heart, Daughter Jerusalem!

1 sn This phrase is used as an epithet for the city and the nation. “Daughter” may seem extraneous in English but consciously joins the various epithets and metaphors of Israel and Jerusalem as a woman, a device used to evoke sympathy from the reader.
