Zephaniah 2:13-15 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

13 And he will stretch out his hand against the north,
    and destroy Assyria;
and he will make Nineveh a desolation,
    a dry waste like the desert.
14 Herds shall lie down in it,
    every wild animal;[a]
the desert-owl[b] and the screech-owl[c]
    shall lodge on its capitals;
the owl[d] shall hoot at the window,
    the raven[e] croak on the threshold;
    for its cedar-work will be laid bare.
15 Is this the exultant city
    that lived secure,
that said to itself,
    ‘I am, and there is no one else’?
What a desolation it has become,
    a lair for wild animals!
Everyone who passes by it
    hisses and shakes the fist.
