Zephaniah 3:9

and will worship him in unison. 3 

Zephaniah 3:13

Context

3:13 The Israelites who remain 4  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 5  and lie down;

no one will terrify them.”

1 tn Heb “Certainly [or perhaps, “For”] then I will restore to the nations a pure lip.”

sn I will then enable the nations to give me acceptable praise. This apparently refers to a time when the nations will reject their false idol-gods and offer genuine praise to the one true God.

2 tn Heb “so that all of them will call on the name of the Lord.”

3 tn Heb “so that [they] will serve him [with] one shoulder.”

4 tn Or “the remnant of Israel.”

5 tn The words “peacefully like sheep” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
