SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:13 Y extenderá su mano sobre el aquilón, y destruirá al Assur, y pondrá a Nínive en asolamiento, y en secadal como un desierto.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zephaniah 2:13 Verse 13. 7Be will-destroy Assyria] He will overthrow the empire, and Nineveh, their metropolitan city. See on Jonah and Nahum.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And he will stretch out his hand against the north , etc.] Either the Lord, or Nebuchadnezzar his sword; who, as he would subdue the nations that lay southward, he would lead his army northward against the land of Assyria, which lay to the north of Judea, as next explained: and destroy Assyria ; that famous monarchy, which had ruled over the kingdoms of the earth, now should come to an end, and be reduced to subjection to the king of Babylon: and will make Nineveh a desolation ; which was the capital city, the metropolis of the Assyrian monarchy: Nahum prophesies at large of the destruction of this city: [and] dry like a wilderness ; which before was a very watery place, situated by rivers, particularly the river Tigris; so that it was formerly like a pool of water, (Na 2:6,8) but now should be dry like a heath or desert, Dr.
Prideaux places the destruction of Nineveh in the twenty ninth year of Josiah’s reign; but Bishop Usher earlier, in the sixteenth year of his reign; and, if so, then Zephaniah, who here prophesies of it, must begin to prophesy in the former part of Josiah’s reign.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-15 - Those are really in a woful condition who have the word of the Lor against them, for no word of his shall fall to the ground. God wil restore his people to their rights, though long kept from them. It ha been the common lot of God's people, in all ages, to be reproached an reviled. God shall be worshipped, not only by all Israel, and the strangers who join them, but by the heathen. Remote nations must be reckoned with for the wrongs done to God's people. The sufferings of the insolent and haughty in prosperity, are unpitied and unlamented But all the desolations of flourishing nations will make way for the overturning Satan's kingdom. Let us improve our advantages, and expec the performance of every promise, praying that our Father's name may be hallowed every where, over all the earth __________________________________________________________________
