Zephaniah 1
New Living Translation
1The Lord gave this message to Zephaniah when Josiah son of Amon was king of Judah. Zephaniah was the son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah.H1697H3068H6846H1121H3570H1121H1436H1121H568H1121H2396H3117H2977H1121H526H4428H3063

Coming Judgment against Judah

2“I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” says the Lord.H622H5486H6440H127H5002H3068 3“I will sweep away people and animals alike. I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish in the sea. I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, and I will wipe humanity from the face of the earth,” says the Lord.H5486H120H929H5486H5775H8064H1709H3220H4384H7563H3772H120H6440H127H5002H3068 4“I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear.H5186H3027H3063H3427H3389H3772H7605H1168H4725H8034H3649H3548 5For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the Lord, but then they worship Molech, too.H7812H6635H8064H1406H7812H7650H3068H7650H4428 6And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance or seek my blessings.”H5472H310H3068H1245H3068H1875 7Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign Lord, for the awesome day of the Lord’s judgment is near. The Lord has prepared his people for a great slaughter and has chosen their executioners.H2013H6440H136H3069H3117H3068H7138H3068H3559H2077H6942H7121 8“On that day of judgment,” says the Lord, “I will punish the leaders and princes of Judah and all those following pagan customs.H3117H3068H2077H6485H8269H4428H1121H3847H5237H4403 9Yes, I will punish those who participate in pagan worship ceremonies, and those who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.H3117H6485H1801H4670H4390H113H1004H2555H4820 10“On that day,” says the Lord, “a cry of alarm will come from the Fish Gate and echo throughout the New Quarter of the city. And a great crash will sound from the hills.H3117H5002H3068H6963H6818H1709H8179H3215H4932H1419H7667H1389 11Wail in sorrow, all you who live in the market area, for all the merchants and traders will be destroyed.H3213H3427H4389H3667H5971H1820H5187H3701H3772 12“I will search with lanterns in Jerusalem’s darkest corners to punish those who sit complacent in their sins. They think the Lord will do nothing to them, either good or bad.H6256H2664H3389H5216H6485H582H7087H8105H559H3824H3068H3190H7489 13So their property will be plundered, their homes will be ransacked. They will build new homes but never live in them. They will plant vineyards but never drink wine from them.H2428H4933H1004H8077H1129H1004H3427H5193H3754H8354H3196 14“That terrible day of the Lord is near. Swiftly it comes—a day of bitter tears, a day when even strong men will cry out.H1419H3117H3068H7138H7138H4118H3966H6963H3117H3068H1368H6873H4751 15It will be a day when the Lord’s anger is poured out—a day of terrible distress and anguish, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness,H3117H3117H5678H3117H6869H4691H3117H7722H4875H3117H2822H653H3117H6051H6205 16a day of trumpet calls and battle cries. Down go the walled cities and the strongest battlements!H3117H7782H8643H1219H5892H1364H6438 17“Because you have sinned against the Lord, I will make you grope around like the blind. Your blood will be poured into the dust, and your bodies will lie rotting on the ground.”H6887H120H1980H5787H2398H3068H1818H8210H6083H3894H1561 18Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the Lord’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth.H3701H2091H3201H5337H3117H3068H5678H776H398H784H7068H6213H926H3617H3427H776
