Zephaniah 3:8-9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Therefore, wait for Me
this is the Lord’s declaration—
until the day I rise up for plunder.[a]
For My decision is to gather nations,
to assemble kingdoms,
in order to pour out My indignation on them,
all My burning anger;
for the whole earth will be consumed
by the fire of My jealousy.

Final Restoration Promised

For I will then restore
pure speech to the peoples
so that all of them may call
on the name of Yahweh
and serve Him with a single purpose.[b]

Therefore, be patient,” says the Lord.

For I have decided to gather the kingdoms of the earth
    and pour out my fiercest anger and fury on them.
All the earth will be devoured
    by the fire of my jealousy.

“Then I will purify the speech of all people,
    so that everyone can worship the Lord together.
