Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:1 -

The word of the LORD that came to Zephaniah son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah.

The Great Day of the LORD

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:2 -

I will completely sweep away everything

from the face of the earth —

this is the LORD’s declaration.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:3 -

I will sweep away people and animals;

I will sweep away the birds of the sky

and the fish of the sea,

and the ruins[fn] along with the wicked.

I will cut off mankind

from the face of the earth.

This is the LORD’s declaration.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:4 -

I will stretch out my hand against Judah

and against all the residents of Jerusalem.

I will cut off every vestige of Baal

from this place,

the names of the pagan priests

along with the priests;

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:5 -

those who bow in worship on the rooftops

to the stars in the sky;

those who bow and pledge loyalty to the LORD

but also pledge loyalty to Milcom;[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:6 -

and those who turn back from following the LORD,

who do not seek the LORD or inquire of him.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:7 -

Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD,

for the day of the LORD is near.

Indeed, the LORD has prepared a sacrifice;

he has consecrated his guests.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:8 -

On the day of the LORD’s sacrifice

I will punish the officials, the king’s sons,

and all who are dressed in foreign clothing.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:9 -

On that day I will punish

all who skip over the threshold,[fn]

who fill their master’s house

with violence and deceit.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:10 -

On that day —

this is the LORD’s declaration —

there will be an outcry from the Fish Gate,

a wailing from the Second District,

and a loud crashing from the hills.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:11 -

Wail, you residents of the Hollow,[fn]

for all the merchants[fn] will be silenced;

all those loaded with silver will be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:12 -

And at that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps

and punish those who settle down comfortably,[fn]

who say to themselves:

The LORD will not do good or evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:13 -

Their wealth will become plunder

and their houses a ruin.

They will build houses but never live in them,

plant vineyards but never drink their wine.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:14 -

The great day of the LORD is near,

near and rapidly approaching.

Listen, the day of the LORD  —

then the warrior’s cry is bitter.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:15 -

That day is a day of wrath,

a day of trouble and distress,

a day of destruction and desolation,

a day of darkness and gloom,

a day of clouds and total darkness,

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:16 -

a day of trumpet blast and battle cry

against the fortified cities,

and against the high corner towers.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:17 -

I will bring distress on mankind,

and they will walk like the blind

because they have sinned against the LORD.

Their blood will be poured out like dust

and their flesh like dung.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:18 -

Their silver and their gold

will be unable to rescue them

on the day of the LORD’s wrath.

The whole earth will be consumed

by the fire of his jealousy,

for he will make a complete,

yes, a horrifying end

of all the inhabitants of the earth.
