1 Saml jer, saml jer, I Folk, som ej kender Skam,

2 før l endnu er blevet som flyvende Avner, før HE ENs glødende Harme kommer over eder, før HE ENs Vredes Dag kommer over eder.

3 Søg HE EN, alle l ydmyge i Landet, som holder hans Bud, Søg etfærd, Søg Ydmyghed! Måske kan l skjule jer på HE ENs Vredes Dag.

4 Thi Gaza skal ligge forladt og Askalon øde, Asdod drives bort ved Middag, Ekron udryddes.

5 Ve dem, som bor ved Stranden, Kreternes Folk; HE ENs Ord over dig, Kana'an, Filisternes Land! Jeg gør dig til intet, så ingen bor der.

6 Du skal blive til Græsmark for Hyrder, til Folde for Småkvæg.

7 Og Stranden skal tilfalde esten af Judas Hus; de skal græsse derpå. Lejr skal de slå ved Kvæld i Askalons Huse. Thi HE EN deres Gud ser til dem og vender deres Skæbne.

8 Jeg hørte Moabs Spot, Atnmoniternes hånende Ord, med hvilke de spotted mit Folk, hovmoded sig over deres Land.

9 Derfor, så sandt jeg lever, lyder det fra Hærskarers HE E, Israels Gud: Moab skal blive som Sodoma, Ammoniterne som Gomorra, Jord for Nælder, et Salthul, Ørken til evig Tid. esten af mit Folk skal plyndre dem; hvad der levnes af mit Folk skal eje dem.

10 Dette skal times dem for deres Hovmod, fordi de hånede Hærskarers HE Es Folk og gjorde sig store over for det.

11 Frygtelig er HE EN for dem; thi han udrydder alle Jordens Guder, og alle Hedningemes fjerne Strande skal tilbede ham, hver på sit Sted.

12 Også I Ætiopere skal falde for HE ENs Sværd,

13 og han udrækker Hånden mod Nord og tilintetgør Assur, Nineve gør han til Ødemark, tørt som en Ørk;

14 Hjorde skal lejre sig deri, hvert Slettens Dyr; på dets Søjlehoveder sover Pelikan og ørdrum, i Vinduet skriger Uglen, avnen på Tærsklen.

15 Det er den jublende By, som lå så trygt, som sagde i sit Hjerte: "Jeg og ellers ingen." Hvor er den dog blevet øde, et aststed for Dyr! Enhver, som kommer forbi den håner med Fløjt og Hånd.



Exploring the Meaning of Zefanias 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.

 For Reflection: Mixed Up Priorities
The Lord is the one and only great "I AM". But how easy it is for each of us to think "I am it"! Using quotations from the Word, reflect on giving glory to the Lord, and not to ourselves.
