    King James Bible - Zephaniah 2:15

    This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none beside me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand.

    World English Bible

    This is the joyous city that lived carelessly, that said in her
    heart, "I am, and there is none besides me." How she has become a desolation, a place for animals to lie down in! Everyone who passes by her will hiss, and shake their fists.

    Douay-Rheims - Zephaniah 2:15

    This is the glorious city that dwelt in
    security: that said in her heart: I am, and there is none beside me: how is she become a desert, a place for beasts to lie down in? every one that passeth by her, shall hiss, and wag his hand.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    This is the rejoicing city that dwelt in
    security, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none besides me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:15

    Esta es la ciudad alegre que estaba confiada, la que decía en su corazón: Yo soy , y no hay más. ¡Cómo fue tornada en asolamiento, en cama de bestias! Cualquiera que pasare junto a ella silbará, y meneará su mano.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zephaniah 2:15

    Verse 15. This is the rejoicing city] The city in which mirth, jocularity, and
    pleasure, reigned without interruption.

    And wag his hand] Will point her out as a mark and monument of Divine displeasure.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly , etc.] Once exceeding populous, and the inhabitants full of mirth and gaiety, abounding with wealth and riches, and indulging themselves in all carnal delights and pleasures; and, being well fortified, thought themselves out of all danger, and were careless and unconcerned, not fearing any enemy that should attack them; imagining their city was impregnable and invincible: these are the words of the prophet, concluding his prophecy concerning the destruction of this city, and having, by a spirit of prophecy, a foresight of its ruin and desolation; or of passengers, and what they should say when they saw it lie in its ruins: that said in her heart, I [am], and [there is] none besides me ; or, “is there any besides me?” there is none, no city in the world to be compared to it for the largeness of the place, the strength of its walls, the number of its inhabitants, its wealth and riches: at least so she thought within herself, and was elated with these things; and concluded it would never be otherwise with her; “I am”, and shall always continue so: how is she become a desolation ! what a desolate place is this! its walls broken down, its houses demolished, its wealth and riches plundered, its inhabitants destroyed; and now the hold and habitation of beasts of prey, and hateful birds: a place for beasts to lie down in ! and not for men to dwell in: this is said, either as wondering, or as rejoicing at it, as follows: everyone that passeth by her ; and sees her in this ruinous condition: shall hiss, [and] wag his hand ; in scorn and derision, as pleased with the sight, and having no pity and compassion for her, remembering her cruelty to and oppression of others, when in her prosperity; (see Na 3:19).

    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 __________________________________________________________________
