Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:1 - The word of the LORD which 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:

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:2 - “I will completely remove all things
From the face of the [fn]earth,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:3 - “I will remove man and beast;
I will remove the birds of the sky
And the fish of the sea,
And the [fn]ruins along with the wicked;
And I will cut off man from the face of the [fn]earth,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:4 - “So I will stretch out My hand against Judah
And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
And I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place,
And the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:5 - “And those who bow down on the housetops to the host of heaven,
And those who bow down and swear to the LORD and yet swear by [fn]Milcom,

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:6 - And those who have turned back from following the LORD,
And those who have not sought the LORD or inquired of Him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:7 - [fn]Be silent before the Lord [fn]GOD!
For the day of the LORD is near,
For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice,
He has consecrated His guests.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:8 - “Then it will come about on the day of the LORDS sacrifice
That I will punish the princes, the king’s sons
And all who clothe themselves with foreign garments.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:9 - “And I will punish on that day all who leap on the temple threshold,
Who fill the house of their [fn]lord with violence and deceit.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:10 - “On that day,” declares the LORD,
“There will be the sound of a cry from the Fish Gate,
A wail from the [fn]Second Quarter,
And a loud crash from the hills.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:11 - “Wail, O inhabitants of the [fn]Mortar,
For all the [fn]people of Canaan will be silenced;
All who weigh out silver will be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:12 - “It will come about at that time
That I will search Jerusalem with lamps,
And I will punish the men
Who are [fn]stagnant in spirit,
Who say in their hearts,
‘The LORD will not do good or evil!’

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:13 - “Moreover, their wealth will become plunder
And their houses desolate;
Yes, they will build houses but not inhabit them,
And plant vineyards but not drink their wine.”

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:14 - Near is the great day of the LORD,
Near and coming very quickly;
Listen, the day of the LORD!
[fn]In it the warrior cries out bitterly.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:15 - A day of wrath is that day,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of destruction and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloom,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:16 - A day of trumpet and battle cry
Against the fortified cities
And the high corner towers.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:17 - I will bring distress on men
So that they will walk like the blind,
Because they have sinned against the LORD;
And their blood will be poured out like dust
And their flesh like dung.

Unchecked Copy BoxZep 1:18 - Neither their silver nor their gold
Will be able to deliver them
On the day of the LORDS wrath;
And all the earth will be devoured
In the fire of His jealousy,
For He will make a complete end,
Indeed a terrifying one,
Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
