Zephaniah 2

1 Menkää itseenne, kootkaa ajatuksenne, te häpeämätön kansa,

2 ennenkuin neuvopäätös on synnyttänyt-päivä kiitää pois kuin akanat-ennenkuin teidän päällenne tulee Herran vihan hehku, ennenkuin teidän päällenne tulee Herran vihan päivä.

3 Etsikää Herraa, kaikki maan nöyrät, te, jotka pidätte hänen oikeutensa. Etsikää vanhurskautta, etsikää nöyryyttä; ehkä te saatte suojan Herran vihan päivänä.

4 Sillä Gassa on oleva hyljätty ja Askelon autio, Asdod ajetaan pois keskipäivällä, ja Ekron hävitetään.

5 Voi meren rannikon asukkaita, kreettien kansaa! Herran sana on teitä vastaan, Kanaan, filistealaisten maa; ja minä hävitän sinut asujattomaksi.

6 Ja meren rannikko on oleva laitumina, joilla on paimenten vesikuoppia ja lammastarhoja.

7 Ja rannikko joutuu Juudan heimon jäännökselle. Siellä he laiduntavat; Askelonin huoneisiin he asettuvat makaamaan illoin. Sillä Herra, heidän Jumalansa, on pitävä heistä huolen ja kääntävä heidän kohtalonsa.

8 Minä olen kuullut Mooabin häväistykset ja ammonilaisten pilkat, joilla he ovat häväisseet minun kansaani ja ylvästelleet sen aluetta vastaan.

9 Sentähden, niin totta kuin minä elän, sanoo Herra Sebaot, Israelin Jumala, on Mooab tuleva Sodoman kaltaiseksi ja ammonilaiset Gomorran kaltaisiksi, nokkospehkojen maaksi, suolakuopaksi, autioksi iankaikkisesti. Jääneet minun kansastani ryöstävät heitä, ja minun kansakuntani jäännökset ottavat heidät perintöosaksensa.

10 Tämä tulee heille heidän ylpeydestään, siitä, että ovat herjanneet, ovat ylvästelleet Herran Sebaotin kansaa vastaan.

11 Peljättävä on Herra heille oleva, sillä hän tekee voimattomiksi kaikki maan jumalat; ja kaikki pakanain saaret, kukin paikastansa, tulevat häntä kumartaen rukoilemaan.

12 Myöskin teidät, etiopialaiset, on minun miekkani kaatava-heidätkin!

13 Ja hän on ojentava kätensä pohjoista kohden ja on hukuttava Assurin, tekevä Niiniven autioksi, kuivaksi kuin erämaa.

14 Sen keskellä makaa laumoja, kaikkia villieläimiä joukoittain. Pelikaani ja tuonenkurki yöpyvät sen patsaanpäissä. Kuule, kuinka ne laulavat akkuna-aukossa! Kynnyksellä on tyhjyys. Setrilaudoituksen hän on paljastanut.

15 Tämä oli se riemuisa kaupunki, joka asui turvallisena, joka sanoi sydämessään: "Minä, eikä ketään muuta!" Kuinka autioksi se on tullut, villieläinten makuusijaksi! Jokainen, joka käy siitä ohitse, viheltää ja huiskuttaa kättä.



Exploring the Meaning of Zephaniah 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.
