יג וְיֵט יָדוֹ עַל-צָפוֹן, וִיאַבֵּד אֶת-אַשּׁוּר; וְיָשֵׂם אֶת-נִינְוֵה לִשְׁמָמָה, צִיָּה כַּמִּדְבָּר. 13 And He will stretch out His hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like the wilderness.
יד וְרָבְצוּ בְתוֹכָהּ עֲדָרִים, כָּל-חַיְתוֹ-גוֹי–גַּם-קָאַת גַּם-קִפֹּד, בְּכַפְתֹּרֶיהָ יָלִינוּ; קוֹל יְשׁוֹרֵר בַּחַלּוֹן, חֹרֶב בַּסַּף, כִּי אַרְזָה, עֵרָה. 14 And all beasts of every kind shall lie down in the midst of her in herds; both the pelican and the bittern shall lodge in the capitals thereof; voices shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be in the posts; for the cedar-work thereof shall be uncovered.
טו זֹאת הָעִיר הָעַלִּיזָה, הַיּוֹשֶׁבֶת לָבֶטַח, הָאֹמְרָה בִּלְבָבָהּ, אֲנִי וְאַפְסִי עוֹד; אֵיךְ הָיְתָה לְשַׁמָּה, מַרְבֵּץ לַחַיָּה–כֹּל עוֹבֵר עָלֶיהָ, יִשְׁרֹק יָנִיעַ יָדוֹ. {פ} 15 This is the joyous city that dwelt without care, that said in her heart: ‘I am, and there is none else 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. {P}

But:  also today God is merciful to them who are merciful to her neighbour l and makse peace.

The Bible verse is from the Book of prophet Zephaniah .  Those ancient  big cities became desolate because of the wrath and the cruelty of  people against each others. But even to day  it can happen. The  way Of Christian  Congregation  recommended- it is the way of  peace and loving kindness , charity and mercy.
