Zephaniah 2:15

Context
NETBible

This is how the once-proud city will end up 1  – the city that was so secure. 2  She thought to herself, 3  “I am unique! No one can compare to me!” 4  What a heap of ruins she has become, a place where wild animals live! Everyone who passes by her taunts her 5  and shakes his fist. 6
