    King James Bible - Zephaniah 3:6

    I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant.

    World English Bible

    I have cut off nations. Their battlements are desolate. I have made their streets
    waste, so that no one passes by. Their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, so that there is no inhabitant.

    Douay-Rheims - Zephaniah 3:6

    I have destroyed the nations, and their towers are beaten down: I have made their ways desert, so that there is none that passeth by: their cities are desolate, there is not a man remaining, nor any inhabitant.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets
    waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is no inhabitant.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:6

    Hice talar los gentiles; sus castillos están asolados; hice desiertas sus calles, hasta no quedar quien pase; sus ciudades están asoladas hasta no quedar hombre, hasta no quedar morador.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zephaniah 3:6

    Verse 6. I have
    cut off the nations] Syria, Israel, and those referred to, Isa. xxxvi. 18, 20. - Newcome.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. I have
    cut off the nations , etc.] Utterly destroyed them, as the Philistines, Moabites, Ethiopians, and Assyrians, as in the preceding chapters; all which were done before the coming of Christ in the flesh; and by which instances the Jews should have took warning, lest by their sins they should provoke the Lord to destroy their nation, city, and temple: their towers are desolate ; built on their frontiers, or on the walls of their cities, to defend them; these were demolished, and laid waste, and of no use: or, “their corners” f103 ; towers being usually built on the angles or corners of walls. Some interpret this of their princes, nobles, and great men, who were destroyed; (see Zechariah 10:4): I made their streets waste, that none passeth by ; the streets of their cities, the houses being pulled down by the enemy, the rubbish of them lay in the streets, so that there was no passing for any; and indeed, the houses being demolished, the streets were no more in form: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant ; the houses being burnt with fire, or pulled down, and plundered of the goods and substance in them, and the people cut off by famine, pestilence, or sword; and the rest carried captive, there was scarce a man or inhabitant left; so general was the destruction.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - The holy
    God hates sin most in those nearest to him. A sinful state is and will be, a woful state. Yet they had the tokens of God's presence and all the advantages of knowing his will, with the strongest reason to do it; still they persisted in disobedience. Alas, that men ofte are more active in doing wickedness than believers are in doing good.
