1 Wee der ijselijke, en der bevlekte, der verdrukkende stad!

2 Zij hoort naar de stem niet; zij neemt de tucht niet aan; zij vertrouwt niet op den HEERE; tot haar God nadert zij niet.

3 Haar vorsten zijn brullende leeuwen in het midden van haar; haar rechters zijn avondwolven, die de beenderen niet breken tot aan den morgen.

4 Haar profeten zijn lichtvaardig, gans trouweloze mannen; haar priesters verontreinigen het heilige, zij doen der wet geweld aan.

5 De rechtvaardige HEERE is in het midden van haar, Hij doet geen onrecht; allen morgen geeft Hij Zijn recht in het licht, er ontbreekt niet; doch de verkeerde weet van geen schaamte.

6 Ik heb de heidenen uitgeroeid, hun hoeken zijn verwoest, Ik heb hun straten eenzaam gemaakt, dat niemand daardoor gaat; hun steden zijn verstoord, zodat er niemand is, dat er geen inwoner is.

7 Ik zeide: Immers zult gij Mij vrezen, gij zult de tucht aannemen, opdat haar woning niet uitgeroeid zou worden; al wat Ik haar bezocht hebbe, waarlijk, zij hebben zich vroeg opgemaakt, zij hebben al hun handelingen verdorven.

8 Daarom verwacht Mij, spreekt de HEERE, ten dage als Ik Mij opmake tot den roof; want Mijn oordeel is, de heidenen te verzamelen, de koninkrijken te vergaderen, om over hen Mijn gramschap, de ganse hittigheid Mijns toorns uit te storten, want dit ganse land zal door het vuur van Mijn ijver verteerd worden.

9 Gewisselijk, dan zal Ik tot de volken een reine spraak wenden; opdat zij allen den Naam des HEEREN aanroepen, opdat zij Hem dienen met een eenparigen schouder.

10 Van de zijden der rivieren der Moren zullen Mijn ernstige aanbidders, met de dochter Mijner verstrooiden, Mijn offeranden brengen.

11 Te dien dage zult gij niet beschaamd wezen vanwege al uw handelingen, waarmede gij tegen Mij overtreden hebt; want alsdan zal Ik uit het midden van u wegnemen, die van vreugde opspringen over uw hovaardij, en gij zult u voortaan niet meer verheffen om Mijns heiligen bergs wil.

12 Maar Ik zal in het midden van u doen overblijven een ellendig en arm volk; die zullen op den Naam des HEEREN betrouwen.

13 De overgeblevenen van Israel zullen geen onrecht doen, noch leugen spreken, en in hun mond zal geen bedriegelijke tong gevonden worden; maar zij zullen weiden en nederliggen, en niemand zal hen verschrikken.

14 Zing vrolijk, gij dochter Sions, juich, Israel; wees blijde, en spring op van vreugde van ganser harte, gij dochter Jeruzalems!

15 De HEERE heeft uw oordelen weggenomen, Hij heeft uw vijand weggevaagd; de Koning Israels, de HEERE, is in het midden van u, gij zult geen kwaad meer zien.

16 Te dien dage zal tot Jeruzalem gezegd worden: Vrees niet, o Sion! laat uw handen niet slap worden.

17 De HEERE uw God, is in het midden van u, een Held, Die verlossen zal; Hij zal over u vrolijk zijn met blijdschap, Hij zal zwijgen in Zijn liefde, Hij zal Zich over u verheugen met gejuich.

18 De bedroefden, om der bijeenkomst wil, zal Ik verzamelen, zij zijn uit u; de schimping is een last op haar.

19 Ziet, Ik zal te dien tijde al uw verdrukkers verdoen; en Ik zal de hinkenden behoeden, en de uitgestotenen verzamelen; en Ik zal ze stellen tot een lof, en tot een naam, in het ganse land, waar zij beschaamd zijn geweest.

20 Te dier tijd zal Ik ulieden herwaarts brengen, ten tijde namelijk, als Ik u verzamelen zal; zekerlijk Ik zal ulieden zetten tot een naam en tot een lof, onder alle volken der aarde, als Ik uw gevangenissen voor uw ogen wenden zal, zegt de HEERE.


Exploring the Meaning of Zefanja 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."
