1 Teško nepokornom, okaljanom, nasilničkom gradu!

2 On nikada nije čuo poziva, nikada nije prihvatio pouku; Jahvi on se nikada nije povjerio; svome Bogu nije se nikada približio.

3 Njegovi su knezovi usred njega - lavovi koji riču; njegovi su suci - vuci večernji koji do jutra nisu kosti glodali;

4 proroci su njegovi - razmetljivci, puki lažljivci, svećenici njegovi skvrne Svetište, krše Zakon.

5 Usred njega, Jahve je pravedan - on ne čini nepravde; svako jutro iznosi svoju pravicu, u praskozorje ne izostaje; ali bezbožnik srama ne poznaje.

6 "Uništio sam narode, razorena su kruništa kula njihovih, poharao sam njihove ulice: nema više prolaznika! Razoreni su njihovi gradovi: nema ljudi, nema stanovnika!

7 Govorio sam: 'Ti ćeš se mene ipak bojati, prigrlit ćeš pouku; u njihovim očima ne mogu nestati toliki moji pohodi.' Ali ne! - oni su žurno pokvarili sva djela svoja.

8 Zato mene čekajte - riječ je Jahvina - do dana kad ustanem kao tužilac; jer ja sam odredio da se sakupe narodi, da se saberu kraljevstva, da na vas gnjev svoj izlijem, svu gorčinu svoje srdžbe: u vatri moje ljubomore bit će sva zemlja sažgana.

9 Dat ću narodima čiste usne, da svi mogu zazivati ime Jahvino i služiti mu jednodušno.

10 S druge obale rijeka etiopskih prinosit će mi žrtvene darove moji štovaoci.

11 U onaj dan nećeš se sramiti svih svojih nedjela koja si protiv mene počinio, jer ću ukloniti iz tebe tvoje ohole hvalisavce; i nećeš se više šepiriti na Svetoj gori mojoj,

12 jer ću pustiti da u tebi opstane samo skroman i čedan narod, i u imenu Jahvinu tražit će okrilje

13 Ostatak Izraelov. Oni neće više činiti nepravdu, neće više govoriti laži; u njihovim ustima neće se više naći jezik prijevarni. Moći će pasti i odmarati se, i nitko im neće smetati."

14 Klikći od radosti, Kćeri sionska, viči od veselja, Izraele! Veseli se i raduj se iz sveg srca, Kćeri jeruzalemska!

15 Jahve te riješio tvoje osude, neprijatelje tvoje uklonio! Jahve, kralj Izraelov, u sredini je tvojoj! Ne boj se više zla!

16 U onaj dan reći će se Jeruzalemu: "Ne boj se, Sione! Neka ti ne klonu ruke!

17 Jahve, Bog tvoj, u sredini je tvojoj, silni spasitelj! On će se radovati tebi pun veselja, obnovit će ti svoju ljubav, kliktat će nad tobom radosno

18 kao u dan svečani. Odvratio sam od tebe nevolju da na sebi više ne nosiš sramotu.

19 Evo svladavam sve tvoje tlačitelje. U ono vrijeme izbavit ću sve hrome, sabrat ću prognane, pribavit im hvalu i diku po svoj zemlji gdje ih sramota bijaše dopala.

20 U ono vrijeme ja ću vas dovesti, u ono vrijeme ja ću vas sabrati! Tada ću vam dati hvalu i diku među narodima zemlje, kad okrenem vašu sudbinu pred vašim očima" - govori Jahve.



Exploring the Meaning of Sefanija 3      

Napsal(a) Joe David

In the Book of Zephaniah, the third and final chapter is about the the age-old cycle of the human condition: ceasing to do evil, and learning to do good. The cycle operates at a personal level, for each of us, and at a "church" level, where a set of people with a set of beliefs and habits needs to improve.

In Zephaniah 3:1-5, there's a prophecy that the Lord will come to investigate the condition of the corrupted church. Remember here that a church is not just an organized religion; it's a whole state of mind of a wide set of people -- their beliefs, loves, and practices. For Zephaniah, he was remonstrating with the Jewish church of his day, and prophesying the Lord's Advent. And, the message still applies today.

In Zephaniah 3:6-8, falsified doctrine about truth and good will be thoroughly exposed. Nothing will escape the Lord's cleansing work.

In Zephaniah 3:9-20, it's saying that the new church that will be founded will be made up of the remnant of people who love and acknowledge the Lord. People who have been faithful, and humble, will be forgiven for their transgressions committed against the Lord.

With the influence of the evil cast out of the defiled church, the purity of the Lord’s new church will return. The Lord will be returned to the midst of it. Barrenness will give way to productiveness. "Let not thy hands be slack!".

In place of hopelessness, there will be exhilarating confidence and assurance. People will no longer be held captive by evil and falsity. They will not be deceitful, or speak lies. They will be safe in the Lord's love; i.e. they will "feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid."
