Zephaniah 3:5 ( New Living Translation)
But the LORD is still there in the city, and he does no wrong. Day by day he hands down justice, and he does not fail. But the wicked know no shame.
But the Lord is still in the city …
Evil seems to prevail
Babies are being murdered in the womb
Corruption in high places is seen as mere thing
Churches are being burned down and pastors thrown in jail
The Lord is still in the city
He brings justice to His people
In His mercy He does not destroy us
Take heart my brothers and sisters
For the Lord your God is still in the city
Where can we hide from Him?
In the heavens?
In the depth of the sea?
Isn’t the earth His and heaven His dwelling place?
The Lord God almighty is still on the throne
The earth is His, everything belongs to Him
Be not deceived the Lord will not be mocked
What we sow we will reap
Those who cry out for justice will rejoice
For the Lord our God is still in the city

Therefore, be patient,” says the LORD. “Soon I will stand and accuse these evil nations. For I have decided to gather the kingdoms of the earth and pour out my fiercest anger and fury on them. All the earth will be devoured by the fire of my jealousy.
