  • ZEP 01:01 The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the

  • son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son

  • of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

  • ZEP 01:02 I will utterly consume all [things] from off the land,

  • saith the LORD.

  • ZEP 01:03 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the

  • fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the

  • stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off

  • the land, saith the LORD.

  • ZEP 01:04 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and

  • upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the

  • remnant of Baal from this place, [and] the name of the Chemarims

  • with the priests;

  • ZEP 01:05 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the

  • housetops; and them that worship [and] that swear by the LORD,

  • and that swear by Malcham;

  • ZEP 01:06 And them that are turned back from the LORD; and

  • [those] that have not sought the LORD, nor inquired for him.

  • ZEP 01:07 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for

  • the day of the LORD [is] at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a

  • sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

  • ZEP 01:08 And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD'S

  • sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's

  • children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

  • ZEP 01:09 In the same day also will I punish all those that

  • leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with

  • violence and deceit.

  • ZEP 01:10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD,

  • [that there shall be] the noise of a cry from the fish gate,

  • and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the

  • hills.

  • ZEP 01:11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant

  • people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

  • ZEP 01:12 And it shall come to pass at that time, [that] I will

  • search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are

  • settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will

  • not do good, neither will he do evil.

  • ZEP 01:13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their

  • houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not

  • inhabit [them]; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink

  • the wine thereof.

  • ZEP 01:14 The great day of the LORD [is] near, [it is] near,

  • and hasteth greatly, [even] the voice of the day of the LORD:

  • the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

  • ZEP 01:15 That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and

  • distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness

  • and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

  • ZEP 01:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced

  • cities, and against the high towers.

  • ZEP 01:17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall

  • walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD:

  • and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as

  • the dung.

  • ZEP 01:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to

  • deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land

  • shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make

  • even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

  • ZEP 02:01 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O

  • nation not desired;

  • ZEP 02:02 Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass

  • as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you,

  • before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you.

  • ZEP 02:03 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which

  • have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it

  • may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.

  • ZEP 02:04 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation:

  • they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be

  • rooted up.

  • ZEP 02:05 Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation

  • of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD [is] against you; O

  • Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee,

  • that there shall be no inhabitant.

  • ZEP 02:06 And the sea coast shall be dwellings [and] cottages

  • for shepherds, and folds for flocks.

  • ZEP 02:07 And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house

  • of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon

  • shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall

  • visit them, and turn away their captivity.

  • ZEP 02:08 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings

  • of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people,

  • and magnified [themselves] against their border.

  • ZEP 02:09 Therefore [as] I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the

  • God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children

  • of Ammon as Gomorrah, [even] the breeding of nettles, and

  • saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people

  • shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess

  • them.

  • ZEP 02:10 This shall they have for their pride, because they

  • have reproached and magnified [themselves] against the people of

  • the LORD of hosts.

  • ZEP 02:11 The LORD [will be] terrible unto them: for he will

  • famish all the gods of the earth; and [men] shall worship him,

  • every one from his place, [even] all the isles of the heathen.

  • ZEP 02:12 Ye Ethiopians also, ye [shall be] slain by my sword.

  • ZEP 02:13 And he will stretch out his hand against the north,

  • and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, [and]

  • dry like a wilderness.

  • ZEP 02:14 And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all

  • the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern

  • shall lodge in the upper lintels of it; [their] voice shall sing

  • in the windows; desolation [shall be] in the thresholds: for he

  • shall uncover the cedar work.

  • ZEP 02:15 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.

  • ZEP 03:01 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the

  • oppressing city!

  • ZEP 03:02 She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction;

  • she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.

  • ZEP 03:03 Her princes within her [are] roaring lions; her

  • judges [are] evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the

  • morrow.

  • ZEP 03:04 Her prophets [are] light [and] treacherous persons:

  • her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence

  • to the law.

  • ZEP 03:05 The just LORD [is] in the midst thereof; he will not

  • do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light,

  • he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

  • ZEP 03:06 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.

  • ZEP 03:07 I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive

  • instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever

  • I punished them: but they rose early, [and] corrupted all their

  • doings.

  • ZEP 03:08 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the

  • day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to

  • gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour

  • upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all

  • the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

  • ZEP 03:09 For then will I turn to the people a pure language,

  • that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him

  • with one consent.

  • ZEP 03:10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants,

  • [even] the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering.

  • ZEP 03:11 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy

  • doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I

  • will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy

  • pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy

  • mountain.

  • ZEP 03:12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted

  • and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.

  • ZEP 03:13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor

  • speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their

  • mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make

  • [them] afraid.

  • ZEP 03:14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad

  • and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

  • ZEP 03:15 The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast

  • out thine enemy: the king of Israel, [even] the LORD, [is] in

  • the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

  • ZEP 03:16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou

  • not: [and to] Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

  • ZEP 03:17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee [is] mighty; he

  • will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in

  • his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

  • ZEP 03:18 I will gather [them that are] sorrowful for the

  • solemn assembly, [who] are of thee, [to whom] the reproach of it

  • [was] a burden.

  • ZEP 03:19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict

  • thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was

  • driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land

  • where they have been put to shame.

  • ZEP 03:20 At that time will I bring you [again], even in the

  • time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise

  • among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity

  • before your eyes, saith the LORD.
