1 Malheur à la ville rebelle et souillée, A la ville pleine d'oppresseurs!

2 Elle n'écoute aucune voix, Elle n'a point égard à la correction, Elle ne se confie pas en l'Eternel, Elle ne s'approche pas de son Dieu.

3 Ses chefs au milieu d'elle sont des lions rugissants; Ses juges sont des loups du soir qui ne gardent rien pour le matin.

4 Ses prophètes sont téméraires, infidèles; Ses sacrificateurs profanent les choses saintes, violent la loi.

5 L'Eternel est juste au milieu d'elle, Il ne commet point d'iniquité; Chaque matin il produit à la lumière ses jugements, Sans jamais y manquer; Mais celui qui est inique ne connaît pas la honte.

6 J'ai exterminé des nations; leurs tours sont détruites; J'ai dévasté leurs rues, plus de passants! Leurs villes sont ravagées, plus d'hommes, plus d'habitants!

7 Je disais: Si du moins tu voulais me craindre, Avoir égard à la correction, Ta demeure ne serait pas détruite, Tous les châtiments dont je t'ai menacée n'arriveraient pas; Mais ils se sont hâtés de pervertir toutes leurs actions.

8 Attendez-moi donc, dit l'Eternel, Au jour où je me lèverai pour le butin, Car j'ai résolu de rassembler les nations, De rassembler les royaumes, Pour répandre sur eux ma fureur, Toute l'ardeur de ma colère; Car par le feu de ma jalousie tout le pays sera consumé.

9 Alors je donnerai aux peuples des lèvres pures, Afin qu'ils invoquent tous le nom de l'Eternel, Pour le servir d'un commun accord.

10 D'au delà des fleuves de l'Ethiopie Mes adorateurs, mes dispersés, m'apporteront des offrandes.

11 En ce jour-là, tu n'auras plus à rougir de toutes tes actions Par lesquelles tu as péché contre moi; Car alors j'ôterai du milieu de toi ceux qui triomphaient avec arrogance, Et tu ne t'enorgueilliras plus sur ma montagne sainte.

12 Je laisserai au milieu de toi un peuple humble et petit, Qui trouvera son refuge dans le nom de l'Eternel.

13 Les restes d'Israël ne commettront point d'iniquité, Ils ne diront point de mensonges, Et il ne se trouvera pas dans leur bouche une langue trompeuse; Mais ils paîtront, ils se reposeront, et personne ne les troublera.

14 Pousse des cris de joie, fille de Sion! Pousse des cris d'allégresse, Israël! Réjouis-toi et triomphe de tout ton coeur, fille de Jérusalem!

15 L'Eternel a détourné tes châtiments, Il a éloigné ton ennemi; Le roi d'Israël, L'Eternel, est au milieu de toi; Tu n'as plus de malheur à éprouver.

16 En ce jour-là, on dira à Jérusalem: Ne crains rien! Sion, que tes mains ne s'affaiblissent pas!

17 L'Eternel, ton Dieu, est au milieu de toi, comme un héros qui sauve; Il fera de toi sa plus grande joie; Il gardera le silence dans son amour; Il aura pour toi des transports d'allégresse.

18 Je rassemblerai ceux qui sont dans la tristesse, loin des fêtes solennelles, Ceux qui sont sortis de ton sein; L'opprobre pèse sur eux.

19 Voici, en ce temps-là, j'agirai contre tous tes oppresseurs; Je délivrerai les boiteux et je recueillerai ceux qui ont été chassés, Je ferai d'eux un sujet de louange et de gloire Dans tous les pays où ils sont en opprobre.

20 En ce temps-là, je vous ramènerai; En ce temps-là, je vous rassemblerai; Car je ferai de vous un sujet de gloire et de louange Parmi tous les peuples de la terre, Quand je ramènerai vos captifs sous vos yeux, Dit l'Eternel.


Exploring the Meaning of Zéphanie 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."
