Zephaniah 2:8-11 World English Bible (WEB)

I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the insults of the children of Ammon, with which they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. Therefore as I live, says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, surely Moab will be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, a possession of nettles, and salt pits, and a perpetual desolation. The remnant of my people will plunder them, and the survivors of my nation will inherit them. 10 This they will have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of Yahweh of Armies. 11 Yahweh will be awesome to them, for he will famish all the gods of the land. Men will worship him, everyone from his place, even all the shores of the nations.

Zephaniah 2:8-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“I have heard the [a]taunting of Moab
And the revilings of the sons of Ammon,
With which they have [b]taunted My people
And [c]become arrogant against their territory.
“Therefore, as I live,” declares the Lord of hosts,
The God of Israel,
“Surely Moab will be like Sodom
And the sons of Ammon like Gomorrah—
A place possessed by nettles and salt pits,
And a perpetual desolation.
The remnant of My people will plunder them
And the remainder of My nation will inherit them.”

10 This they will have in return for their pride, because they have [d]taunted and [e]become arrogant against the people of the Lord of hosts. 11 The Lord will be terrifying to them, for He will [f]starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place.
