Zephaniah 2:8-9 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
8 “I have heard the taunts of Moab
and the revilings of the Ammonites,
how they have taunted my people
and made boasts against their territory.
9 Therefore, as I live,” says the Lord of hosts,
the God of Israel,
“Moab shall become like Sodom,
and the Ammonites like Gomor′rah,
a land possessed by nettles and salt pits,
and a waste for ever.
The remnant of my people shall plunder them,
and the survivors of my nation shall possess them.”
