1 Doorzoek u zelf nauw, ja, doorzoek nauw, gij volk, dat met geen lust bevangen wordt!

2 Eer het besluit bare (gelijk kaf gaat de dag voorbij), terwijl de hittigheid van des HEEREN toorn over ulieden nog niet komt; terwijl de dag van den toorn des HEEREN over ulieden nog niet komt.

3 Zoekt den HEERE, alle gij zachtmoedigen des lands, die Zijn recht werken! Zoekt gerechtigheid, zoekt zachtmoedigheid, misschien zult gij verborgen worden in den dag van den toorn des HEEREN.

4 Want Gaza zal verlaten wezen, en Askelon zal ter verwoesting wezen; Asdod zal men in den middag verdrijven, en Ekron zal uitgeworteld worden.

5 Wee den inwonenden van de landstreek der zee, den volken der Cheretim! Het woord des HEEREN zal tegen ulieden zijn, gij Kanaan, der Filistijnen land! en Ik zal u verdoen, dat er geen inwoner zal zijn.

6 En de landstreek der zee zal wezen tot hutten, uitgegraven putten der herders, en betuiningen der kudden.

7 En de landstreek zal wezen voor het overblijfsel van het huis van Juda, dat zij daarin weiden; des avonds zullen zij in de huizen van Askelon legeren, als de HEERE, hunlieder God, hen zal bezocht, en hun gevangenis zal gewend hebben.

8 Ik heb de beschimping van Moab gehoord, en de scheldwoorden der kinderen Ammons, waarmede zij Mijn volk beschimpt hebben, en hebben zich groot gemaakt tegen deszelfs landpale.

9 Daarom, zo waarachtig als Ik leef, spreekt de HEERE der heirscharen, de God Israels: Moab zal zekerlijk zijn als Sodom, en de kinderen Ammons als Gomorra, een netelheide, en een zoutgroeve, en een verwoesting tot in eeuwigheid! De overigen Mijns volks zullen ze beroven, en het overige Mijns volks zal ze erfelijk bezitten.

10 Dat zullen zij hebben in plaats van hun hoogmoed; want zij hebben beschimpt, en hebben zich groot gemaakt tegen het volk van den HEERE der heirscharen.

11 Vreselijk zal de HEERE tegen hen wezen, want Hij zal al de goden der aarde doen uitteren; en een iegelijk uit zijn plaats zal Hem aanbidden, al de eilanden der heidenen.

12 Ook gij, Moren! zult de verslagenen van Mijn zwaard zijn.

13 Hij zal ook Zijn hand uitstrekken tegen het Noorden, en Hij zal Assur verdoen; en Hij zal Nineve stellen tot een verwoesting, droog als een woestijn.

14 En in het midden van haar zullen den kudden legeren, al het gedierte der volken; ook de roerdomp, ook de nachtuil zullen op haar granaatappelen vernachten; een stem zal in het venster zingen, verwoesting zal in den dorpel zijn, als Hij haar cederwerk zal ontbloot hebben.

15 Dit is die stad, die opspringt van vreugde, die zeker woont, die in haar hart zegt: Ik ben het, en buiten mij is geen meer; hoe is zij geworden tot woestheid, een rustplaats van het gedierte! Een ieder, die daardoor trekt, zal ze aanfluiten, hij zal zijn hand bewegen.


Exploring the Meaning of Zefanja 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.
