  • Zephaniah 1







  • 1. The word <01697> of the LORD <03068> which <0834> came

  • <01961> unto Zephaniah <06846> the son <01121> of Cushi <03569>,

  • the son <01121> of Gedaliah <01436>, the son <01121> of Amariah

  • <0568>, the son <01121> of Hizkiah <02396>, in the days <03117>

  • of Josiah <02977> the son <01121> of Amon <0526>, king <04428>

  • of Judah <03063>.







  • 2 I will utterly consume <05486> all <03605> [things] from off

  • the land <0127>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>.







  • 3 I will consume <05486> man <0120> and beast <0929>; I will

  • consume <05486> the fowls <05775> of the heaven <08064>, and the

  • fishes <01709> of the sea <03220>, and the stumblingblocks

  • <04384> with the wicked; and I will cut <03772> off man <0120>

  • from off the land <0127>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>.







  • 4 I will also stretch <05186> out mine hand <03027> upon Judah

  • <03063>, and upon all <03605> the inhabitants <03427> of

  • Jerusalem <03389>; and I will cut <03772> off the remnant

  • <07605> of Baal <01168> from this place <04725>, [and] the name

  • <08034> of the Chemarims <03649> with the priests <03548>;







  • 5 And them that worship <07812> the host <06635> of heaven

  • <08064> upon the housetops <01406>; and them that worship

  • <07812> [and] that swear <07650> by the LORD <03068>, and that

  • swear <07650> by Malcham <04445>;







  • 6 And them that are turned <05472> back <05253> from the LORD

  • <03068>; and [those] that have not sought <01245> the LORD

  • <03068>, nor <03808> enquired <01875> for him.







  • 7. Hold thy peace <02013> at the presence <06440> of the Lord

  • <0136> GOD <03069>: for the day <03117> of the LORD <03068> [is]

  • at hand <07138>: for the LORD <03068> hath prepared <03559> a

  • sacrifice <02077>, he hath bid <06942> his guests <07121>.







  • 8 And it shall come <01961> to pass in the day <03117> of the

  • LORD'S <03068> sacrifice <02077>, that I will punish <06485> the

  • princes <08269>, and the king's <04428> children <01121>, and

  • all <03605> such as are clothed <03847> with strange <05237>

  • apparel <04403>.







  • 9 In the same <01931> day <03117> also will I punish <06485>

  • all <03605> those that leap <01801> on <05921> the threshold

  • <04670>, which fill <04390> their masters <0113>' houses <01004>

  • with violence <02555> and deceit <04820>.







  • 10 And it shall come <01961> to pass in that day <03117>, saith

  • <05002> the LORD <03068>, [that there shall be] the noise

  • <06963> of a cry <06818> from the fish <01709> gate <08179>, and

  • an howling <03213> from the second <04932>, and a great <01419>

  • crashing <07667> from the hills <01389>.







  • 11 Howl <03213>, ye inhabitants <03427> of Maktesh <04389>, for

  • all <03605> the merchant <03667> people <05971> are cut <01820>

  • down; all <03605> they that bear <05187> silver <03701> are cut

  • <03772> off.







  • 12 And it shall come <01961> to pass at that time <06256>,

  • [that] I will search <02664> Jerusalem <03389> with candles

  • <05216>, and punish <06485> the men <0582> that are settled

  • <07087> on <05921> their lees <08105>: that say <0559> in their

  • heart <03824>, The LORD <03068> will not do good <03190>,

  • neither <03808> will he do evil <07489>.







  • 13 Therefore their goods <02428> shall become <01961> a booty

  • <04953>, and their houses <01004> a desolation <08047>: they

  • shall also build <01129> houses <01004>, but not inhabit <03427>

  • [them]; and they shall plant <05193> vineyards <03754>, but not

  • drink <08354> the wine <03196> thereof.







  • 14. The great <01419> day <03117> of the LORD <03068> [is] near

  • <07138>, [it is] near <07138>, and hasteth <04116> greatly

  • <03966>, [even] the voice <06963> of the day <03117> of the LORD

  • <03068>: the mighty <01368> man shall cry <06873> there <08033>

  • bitterly <04751>.







  • 15 That day <03117> [is] a day <03117> of wrath <05678>, a day

  • <03117> of trouble <06869> and distress <04691>, a day <03117>

  • of wasteness <07722> and desolation <04875>, a day <03117> of

  • darkness <02822> and gloominess <0653>, a day <03117> of clouds

  • <06051> and thick darkness <06205>,







  • 16 A day <03117> of the trumpet <07782> and alarm <08643>

  • against <05921> the fenced <01219> cities <05892>, and against

  • <05921> the high <01364> towers <06438>.







  • 17 And I will bring distress <06887> upon men <0120>, that they

  • shall walk <01980> like blind <05787> men, because <03588> they

  • have sinned <02398> against the LORD <03068>: and their blood

  • <01818> shall be poured <08210> out as dust <06083>, and their

  • flesh <03894> as the dung <01561>.







  • 18 Neither <03808> their silver <03701> nor <01571> their gold

  • <02091> shall be able <03201> to deliver <05337> them in the day

  • <03117> of the LORD'S <03068> wrath <05678>; but the whole

  • <03605> land <0776> shall be devoured <0398> by the fire <0784>

  • of his jealousy <07068>: for he shall make <06213> even a speedy

  • <0926> riddance <03617> of all <03605> them that dwell <03427>

  • in the land <0776>.







  • Zephaniah 2







  • 1. Gather <07197> yourselves together, yea, gather <07197>

  • together, O nation <01471> not desired <03700>;







  • 2 Before <06440> the decree <02706> bring <03205> forth <03205>,

  • [before <06440>] the day <03117> pass <05674> as the chaff

  • <04671>, before <06440> the fierce <02740> anger <0639> of the

  • LORD <03068> come <0935> upon you, before <06440> the day

  • <03117> of the LORD'S <03068> anger <0639> come <0935> upon you.







  • 3 Seek <01245> ye the LORD <03068>, all <03605> ye meek <06035>

  • of the earth <0776>, which <0834> have wrought <06466> his

  • judgment <04941>; seek <01245> righteousness <06664>, seek

  • <01245> meekness <06038>: it may <0194> be ye shall be hid

  • <05641> in the day <03117> of the LORD'S <03068> anger <0639>.







  • 4. For Gaza <05804> shall be forsaken <05800>, and Ashkelon

  • <0831> a desolation <08077>: they shall drive <01644> out Ashdod

  • <0795> at the noon <06672> day, and Ekron <06138> shall be

  • rooted <06131> up.







  • 5 Woe <01945> unto the inhabitants <03427> of the sea <03220>

  • coast <02256>, the nation <01471> of the Cherethites <03774>!

  • the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> [is] against <05921> you; O

  • Canaan <03667>, the land <0776> of the Philistines <06430>, I

  • will even destroy <06> thee, that there shall be no <0369>

  • inhabitant <03427>.







  • 6 And the sea <03220> coast <02256> shall be dwellings <05116>

  • [and] cottages <03741> for shepherds <07462>, and folds <01448>

  • for flocks <06629>.







  • 7 And the coast <02256> shall be for the remnant <07611> of the

  • house <01004> of Judah <03063>; they shall feed <07462>

  • thereupon: in the houses <01004> of Ashkelon <0831> shall they

  • lie <07257> down <07257> in the evening <06153>: for the LORD

  • <03068> their God <0430> shall visit <06485> them, and turn

  • <07725> away their captivity <07622>.







  • 8. I have heard <08085> the reproach <02781> of Moab <04124>,

  • and the revilings <01421> of the children <01121> of Ammon

  • <05983>, whereby <0834> they have reproached <02778> my people

  • <05971>, and magnified <01431> [themselves] against <05921>

  • their border <01366>.







  • 9 Therefore <03651> [as] I live <02416>, saith <05002> the LORD

  • <03068> of hosts <06635>, the God <0430> of Israel <03478>,

  • Surely <03588> Moab <04124> shall be as Sodom <05467>, and the

  • children <01121> of Ammon <05983> as Gomorrah <06017>, [even]

  • the breeding <04476> of nettles <02738>, and saltpits <04417>,

  • and a perpetual <05769> desolation <08077>: the residue <07611>

  • of my people <05971> shall spoil <07998> them, and the remnant

  • <03499> of my people <01471> shall possess <05157> them.







  • 10 This <02063> shall they have for their pride <01347>,

  • because <03588> they have reproached <02778> and magnified

  • <01431> [themselves] against <05921> the people <05971> of the

  • LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>.







  • 11 The LORD <03068> [will be] terrible <03372> unto them: for

  • he will famish <07329> all <03605> the gods <0430> of the earth

  • <0776>; and [men] shall worship <07812> him, every <0376> one

  • <0376> from his place <04725>, [even] all <03605> the isles

  • <0339> of the heathen <01471>.







  • 12. Ye Ethiopians <03569> also <01571>, ye [shall be] slain

  • <02491> by my sword <02719>.







  • 13 And he will stretch <05186> out his hand <03027> against

  • <05921> the north <06828>, and destroy <06> Assyria <0804>; and

  • will make <07760> Nineveh <05210> a desolation <08077>, [and]

  • dry <06723> like a wilderness <04057>.







  • 14 And flocks <05739> shall lie <07257> down <07257> in the

  • midst <08432> of her, all <03605> the beasts <02416> of the

  • nations <01471>: both <01571> the cormorant <06893> and the

  • bittern <07090> shall lodge <03885> in the upper <03730> lintels

  • <03730> of it; [their] voice <06963> shall sing <07891> in the

  • windows <02474>; desolation <02721> [shall be] in the thresholds

  • <05592>: for he shall uncover <06168> the cedar <0731> work

  • <0731>.







  • 15 This <02063> [is] the rejoicing <05947> city <05892> that

  • dwelt <03427> carelessly <0983>, that said <0559> in her heart

  • <03824>, I [am], and [there is] none <0657> beside <0657> me:

  • how <0349> is she become <01961> a desolation <08047>, a place

  • for beasts <02416> to lie <04769> down <04769> in! every <03605>

  • one that passeth <05674> by her shall hiss <08319>, [and] wag

  • <05128> his hand <03027>.







  • Zephaniah 3







  • 1. Woe <01945> to her that is filthy <04754> and polluted

  • <01351>, to the oppressing <03238> city <05892>!







  • 2 She obeyed <08085> not the voice <06963>; she received

  • <03947> not correction <04148>; she trusted <0982> not in the

  • LORD <03068>; she drew not near <07126> to her God <0430>.







  • 3 Her princes <08269> within <07130> her [are] roaring lions

  • <0738>; her judges <08199> [are] evening <06153> wolves <02061>;

  • they gnaw <01633> not the bones <01633> till the morrow <01242>.







  • 4 Her prophets <05030> [are] light <06348> [and] treacherous

  • <0900> persons <0582>: her priests <03548> have polluted <02490>

  • the sanctuary <06944>, they have done violence <02554> to the

  • law <08451>.







  • 5 The just <06662> LORD <03068> [is] in the midst <07130>

  • thereof; he will not do <06213> iniquity <05766>: every morning

  • <01242> doth he bring <05414> his judgment <04941> to light

  • <0216>, he faileth <05737> not; but the unjust <05767> knoweth

  • <03045> no <03808> shame <01322>.







  • 6 I have cut <03772> off the nations <01471>: their towers

  • <06438> are desolate <08074>; I made their streets <02351> waste

  • <02717>, that none <01097> passeth <05674> by: their cities

  • <05892> are destroyed <06658>, so that there is no <01097> man

  • <0376>, that there is none <0369> inhabitant <03427>.







  • 7 I said <0559>, Surely thou wilt fear <03372> me, thou wilt

  • receive <03947> instruction <04148>; so their dwelling <04583>

  • should not be cut <03772> off, howsoever I punished <06485> them:

  • but they rose <07925> early <07925>, [and] corrupted <07843>

  • all <03605> their doings <05949>.







  • 8. Therefore <03651> wait <02442> ye upon me, saith <05002> the

  • LORD <03068>, until the day <03117> that I rise <06965> up to

  • the prey <05706>: for my determination <04941> [is] to gather

  • <0622> the nations <01471>, that I may assemble <06908> the

  • kingdoms <04467>, to pour <08210> upon them mine indignation

  • <02195>, [even] all <03605> my fierce <02740> anger <0639>: for

  • all <03605> the earth <0776> shall be devoured <0398> with the

  • fire <0784> of my jealousy <07068>.







  • 9 For then <0227> will I turn <02015> to the people <05971> a

  • pure <01305> language <08193>, that they may all <03605> call

  • <07121> upon the name <08034> of the LORD <03068>, to serve

  • <05647> him with one <0259> consent <07926>.







  • 10 From beyond <05676> the rivers <05104> of Ethiopia <03568>

  • my suppliants <06282>, [even] the daughter <01323> of my

  • dispersed <06327>, shall bring <02986> mine offering <04503>.







  • 11 In that day <03117> shalt thou not be ashamed <0954> for all

  • <03605> thy doings <05949>, wherein <0834> thou hast

  • transgressed <06586> against me: for then <0227> I will take

  • <05493> away <05493> out of the midst <07130> of thee them that

  • rejoice <05947> in thy pride <01346>, and thou shalt no <03808>

  • more be haughty <01361> because of my holy <06944> mountain

  • <02022>.







  • 12 I will also leave <07604> in the midst <07130> of thee an

  • afflicted <06041> and poor <01800> people <05971>, and they

  • shall trust <02620> in the name <08034> of the LORD <03068>.







  • 13 The remnant <07611> of Israel <03478> shall not do <06213>

  • iniquity <05766>, nor <03808> speak <01696> lies <03576>;

  • neither <03808> shall a deceitful <08649> tongue <03956> be

  • found <04672> in their mouth <06310>: for they shall feed

  • <07462> and lie <07257> down <04769>, and none <0369> shall make

  • [them] afraid <02729>.







  • 14. Sing <07442>, O daughter <01323> of Zion <06726>; shout

  • <07321>, O Israel <03478>; be glad <08056> and rejoice <05937>

  • with all <03605> the heart <03820>, O daughter <01323> of

  • Jerusalem <03389>.







  • 15 The LORD <03068> hath taken <05493> away <05493> thy

  • judgments <04941>, he hath cast <06437> out thine enemy <0341>:

  • the king <04428> of Israel <03478>, [even] the LORD <03068>,

  • [is] in the midst <07130> of thee: thou shalt not see <07200>

  • evil <07451> any more <05750>.







  • 16 In that day <03117> it shall be said <0559> to Jerusalem

  • <03389>, Fear <03372> thou not: [and to] Zion <06726>, Let not

  • thine hands <03027> be slack <07503>.







  • 17 The LORD <03068> thy God <0430> in the midst <07130> of thee

  • [is] mighty <01368>; he will save <03467>, he will rejoice

  • <07797> over <05921> thee with joy <08057>; he will rest <02790>

  • in his love <0160>, he will joy <01523> over <05921> thee with

  • singing <07440>.







  • 18 I will gather <0622> [them that are] sorrowful <03013> for

  • the solemn <04150> assembly <04150>, [who] are of thee, [to whom

  • <05921>] the reproach <02781> of it [was] a burden <04864>.







  • 19 Behold <02005>, at that time <06256> I will undo <06213> all

  • <03605> that afflict <06031> thee: and I will save <03467> her

  • that halteth <06761>, and gather <06908> her that was driven

  • <05080> out; and I will get <0776> them praise <08416> and fame

  • <08034> in every <03605> land <0776> where they have been put to

  • shame <01322>.







  • 20 At that time <06256> will I bring <0935> you [again], even

  • in the time <06256> that I gather <06908> you: for I will make

  • <05414> you a name <08034> and a praise <08416> among all

  • <03605> people <05971> of the earth <0776>, when I turn <07725>

  • back <07725> your captivity <07622> before your eyes <05869>,

  • saith <0559> the LORD <03068>.
