Verse 13 "Therefore their goods shall become a booty,..." The "booty" is what you collect when you go
on a campaign, etc.

ZEPHANIAH 2
In the midst of them the sheep, and various kinds of cattle will by lying down. On their heads,
cranes and other birds are making noise. They will all lie down on the steps of the house. All the carts
made of cedar trees will be destroyed. A bittern is a wild pig, a porcupine. They call a porcupine a wild
pig.

ZEPHANIAH 3
Verse 3 God was speaking about the churches of Israel. Evening wolves never go out to hunt until dark.
The wolves are very cowardly, but fierce. They won't go alone to hunt, but in packs. The church loves to
deceive the people by wrong laws and wrong methods. The evening wolves are like unto the churches.
They hunt from about 6 P.M. to 6 A.M. If they get 10 sheep they don't just suck the blood and leave it
alone. They eat the flesh, bones, and all. Nothing is left. So it is with the churches. They just satisfy
their own lust. So it is with the churches of the Orient where Western civilization has not come in.
Translation: "They hunt all night and eat everything they can—bones and all."
