1 Examinez-vous, examinez-vous avec soin ô nation qui n'êtes pas aimable!

2 Avant que le décret enfante, et que le jour passe comme de la balle; avant que l'ardeur de la colère de l'Eternel vienne sur vous, avant que le jour de la colère de l'Eternel vienne sur vous.

3 Vous, tous les débonnaires du pays, qui faites ce qu'il ordonne, cherchez l'Eternel, cherchez la justice, cherchez la débonnaireté; peut-être serez-vous mis en sûreté au jour de la colère de l'Eternel.

4 Mais Gaza sera abandonnée, et Askélon sera en désolation; on chassera [les habitants] d'Asdod en plein Midi, et Hékron sera arrachée.

5 Malheur aux habitants de la contrée maritime, à la nation des Kéréthiens, la parole de l'Eternel est contre vous; Canaan, [qui es] le pays des Philistins, je te détruirai, tellement que personne n'y habitera.

6 Et la contrée maritime ne sera que cabanes, que loges de bergers, et parcs de brebis.

7 Et cette contrée sera pour le reste de la maison de Juda; ils paîtront dans ces lieux-là, et le soir ils feront leur gîte dans les maisons d'Askélon; car l'Eternel leur Dieu les visitera, et il ramènera leurs captifs.

8 J'ai ouï les insultes de Moab, et les invectives des enfants de Hammon, dont ils ont diffamé mon peuple, et l'ont bravé sur leur frontière.

9 C'est pourquoi, je suis vivant, dit l'Eternel des armées, le Dieu d'Israël, que Moab sera comme Sodome, et les enfants de Mammon comme Gomorrhe, un lieu couvert d'orties, et une carrière de sel et de désolation à jamais; les restes de mon peuple les pilleront, et les restes de [ma] nation les posséderont.

10 Ceci leur arrivera en échange de leur orgueil, parce qu'ils ont usé d'insultes et de vanteries, contre le peuple de l'Eternel des armées.

11 L'Eternel sera terrible contre eux; car il amaigrira tous les dieux du pays; et on se prosternera devant lui, chacun de son lieu, même toutes les Iles des nations.

12 Vous aussi [habitants] de Cus, vous serez blessés à mort par mon épée.

13 Il étendra aussi sa main sur l'Aquilon, et il détruira l'Assyrie, et mettra Ninive en désolation, en un lieu aride comme un désert.

14 Et les troupeaux feront leur gîte au milieu d'elle, et toutes les bêtes des nations, même le cormoran, et le butor logeront dans ses porteaux, la voix des oiseaux retentira à la fenêtre, la désolation sera au seuil, parce qu'il en aura abbatu des cèdres.

15 C'est là cette ville remplie de joie, qui se tenait assurée, et qui disait en son cœur; c'est moi, et il n'y en a point d'autre que moi. Comment a-t-elle été réduite en désert, pour être le gîte des bêtes? Quiconque passera près d elle se moquera, et branlera sa main.



Exploring the Meaning of Zéphanie 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.
