1 Kom tot julleself, ja, kom tot inkeer, o nasie wat nie skaam word nie!

2 Voordat die besluit baar--soos kaf gaan die dag verby--voordat daar oor julle kom die toorngloed van die HERE, voordat oor julle kom die dag van die toorn van die HERE.

3 Soek die HERE, o alle ootmoediges van die land, wat sy ordening onderhou; Soek geregtigheid, Soek ootmoedigheid--miskien sal julle verborge bly op die dag van die toorn van die HERE.

4 Want Gasa sal verlate wees en Askelon tot verwoesting; Asdod sal op die helder middag verdryf word, en Ekron sal ontwortel word.

5 Wee die inwoners van die kusstreek, die nasie van die Kretiërs! Die woord van die HERE is teen julle, Kanaän, land van die Filistyne--Ek verdelg jou, sodat daar niemand meer woon nie.

6 En die kusstreek sal weiplekke met putte wees vir herders en krale vir kleinvee.

7 En dit sal wees 'n deel vir die oorblyfsel van die huis van Juda: hulle sal daarop wei; hulle sal saans in die huise van Askelon gaan lê, want die HERE hulle God sal op hulle ag gee en hulle lot verander.

8 Ek het gehoor die smaadtaal van Moab en die beskimpinge van die kinders van Ammon, waarmee hulle my volk gesmaad het, en hoe hulle hul groot gehou het teen sy grondgebied.

9 Daarom, so waar as Ek leef, spreek die HERE van die leërskare, die God van Israel: Moab sal word soos Sodom en die kinders van Ammon soos Gomorra--'n veld van brandnekels en soutpanne en 'n verwoesting vir ewig; die oorblyfsel van my volk sal hulle berowe, en die res van my nasie sal hulle beërwe.

10 Dit oorkom hulle vir hul trotsheid, want hulle het geskimp op en hulle groot gehou teen die volk van die HERE van die leërskare.

11 Vreeslik sal die HERE teen hulle wees, want Hy laat al die gode van die aarde wegkwyn; sodat hulle Hom kan aanbid elkeen uit sy woonplek, al die kuslande van die nasies.

12 Ook julle, o Kusiete, deurboordes van my swaard is hulle.

13 Dan sal Hy sy hand uitstrek teen die noorde, en Hy sal Assur vernietig en Ninevé tot 'n verwoesting maak, dor soos die woestyn.

14 En binne-in die stad sal troppe vee lê en allerhande gediertes by troppe, die pelikaan sowel as die krimpvarkie op sy kapitele vernag; hoor! daar word gesing in die venster; verwoesting sit op die drumpel, want hulle het die sederwerk afgeruk.

15 Dit is die uitgelate stad wat so veilig gewoon het, wat in sy hart gesê het: Dit is ek, en niemand anders nie! Hoe het dit 'n verwoesting geword, 'n lêplek vir wilde diere! Almal wat daar verbytrek, spot, skud met die hand.



Exploring the Meaning of Sefanja 2      

Napsal(a) Joe David

In Zephaniah 2:1-3, the people Zephaniah is talking to (that includes us!), need to change their ways and trust in the Lord and His Word.

In Zephaniah 2:4-7, there's a prophecy that the cities of the Philistines will come to grief and the whole area of the Mediterranean seacoast will be populated only by shepherds and their flocks, and these shepherds will be remnants from the kingdom of Judah. Here, the Philistines represent people who do evil.

In Zephaniah 2:8-10, the peoples who live around the land of Canaan, but not in it (the Moabites and Ammonites), stand for attitudes and evils that can cause temptations to good loves and true ideas. They are compared to Sodom and Gomorrah.

In Zephaniah 2:11... In the minds of people who wish to serve the Lord, those bad attitudes and evils must be destroyed, and with the Lord's help, they can be.

In Zephaniah 2:12-15, there are references to Ethiopia, Assyria, and Ninevah. When Ethiopia is referred to in a negative sense, it refers to people who use knowledges from the Word to confirm false ideas. Similarly, Assyria means reasoning from any knowledge which in this context leads to bad conclusions. And then there's Ninevah. This city means false doctrine, and these verses tell of her fate when judgement comes. Before that its people are proud of its learning, but after the Judgement, it is abandoned and empty.
