1 Das Wort Jehovas, welches zu Zephanja geschah, dem Sohne Kuschis, des Sohnes Gedaljas, des Sohnes Amarjas, des Sohnes Hiskijas, in den Tagen Josias, des Sohnes Amons, des Königs von Juda.

2 Ich werde alles von der Fläche des Erdbodens gänzlich wegraffen, spricht Jehova;

3 ich werde Menschen und Vieh wegraffen, ich werde wegraffen die Vögel des Himmels und die Fische des Meeres, und die Ärgernisse samt den Gesetzlosen; und ich werde die Menschen ausrotten von der Fläche des Erdbodens, spricht Jehova. -

4 Und ich werde meine Hand ausstrecken wider Juda und wider alle Bewohner von Jerusalem. Und ich werde aus diesem Orte den Überrest des Baal, den Namen der Götzenpriester samt den Priestern ausrotten;

5 und die auf den Dächern das Heer des Himmels anbeten, und die Anbetenden, welche dem Jehova schwören und bei ihrem König schwören;

6 und die von Jehova zurückweichen, und die Jehova nicht suchen noch nach ihm fragen.

7 Still vor dem Herrn Jehova! Denn nahe ist der Tag Jehovas; denn Jehova hat ein Schlachtopfer bereitet, er hat seine Geladenen geheiligt.

8 Und es wird geschehen an dem Tage des Schlachtopfers Jehovas, da werde ich die Fürsten und die Königssöhne heimsuchen und alle, die sich mit fremder Kleidung bekleiden.

9 Und an jenem Tage werde ich einen jeden heimsuchen, der über die Schwelle springt, alle, die das Haus ihres Herrn mit Gewalttat und Betrug erfüllen.

10 Und an jenem Tage, spricht Jehova, wird ein Geschrei erschallen vom Fischtore her, und ein Geheul von der Unterstadt, und lautes Jammern von den Hügeln her.

11 Heulet, ihr Bewohner von Maktesch! Denn alles Krämervolk ist vernichtet, alle mit Silber Beladenen sind ausgerottet.

12 Und es wird geschehen zu jener Zeit, da werde ich Jerusalem mit Leuchten durchsuchen; und ich werde die Männer heimsuchen, welche auf ihren Hefen liegen, die in ihrem Herzen sprechen: Jehova tut nichts Gutes und tut nichts Böses.

13 Und ihr Vermögen wird zum Raube, und ihre Häuser werden zur Wüste werden; und sie werden Häuser bauen und sie nicht bewohnen, und Weinberge pflanzen und deren Wein nicht trinken.

14 Nahe ist der große Tag Jehovas; er ist nahe und eilt sehr. Horch, der Tag Jehovas! Bitterlich schreit dort der Held.

15 Ein Tag des Grimmes ist dieser Tag, Ein Tag der Drangsal und der Bedrängnis, Ein Tag des Verwüstens und der Verwüstung, Ein Tag der Finsternis und der Dunkelheit, Ein Tag des Gewölks und des Wolkendunkels,

16 ein Tag der Posaune und des Kriegsgeschreis wider die festen Städte und wider die hohen Zinnen.

17 Und ich werde die Menschen ängstigen, und sie werden einhergehen wie die Blinden, weil sie gegen Jehova gesündigt haben; und ihr Blut wird verschüttet werden wie Staub, und ihr Fleisch wie Kot;

18 auch ihr Silber, auch ihr Gold wird sie nicht erretten können am Tage des Grimmes Jehovas; und durch das Feuer seines Eifers wird das ganze Land verzehrt werden. Denn ein Ende, ja, ein plötzliches Ende wird er machen mit allen Bewohnern des Landes.

Zephaniah’s prophecy is said to have taken place in the days of Josiah, the king of Judah. Josiah was a good king, walking in the all ways of the Lord, but both his sons were evil. He was the last king of Judah before Nebuchadnezzar's army conquered Jerusalem, and took many of the Jews captive to exile in Babylon for 70 years. (See the last four chapters of 2 Kings for Josiah’s story.)

The first chapter of the book of Zephaniah, in Zephaniah 1:1-3, begins with a prophecy that God will consume all things. We know that this isn't literally what was going to happen; consuming is not something that God does. Instead, it's something we do to ourselves when we depend only on our understanding of truth and ignore what is said in the Word. It means the perishing of our understanding of that truth.

The people who lived at that time were becoming totally external; there was no more affection for truths. Random thoughts about truths were gone, even the most outward truths of the stories were not considered worthy of thought, and any difficult truths were ignored. The church was becoming only a matter of rote external motions.

In Zephaniah 1:4-6, Baal, the stars and moon and sun, and Malcam, are false gods. Again it seems as though the Lord will punish Judah, but actually, by having “turned back from following the Lord,” the people of Judah has turned to false gods have no real power.

In Zephaniah 1:7-8, nevertheless the lord will have mercy on those that turn back to Him and can sit at His feast. But as in the parable of the wedding supper, (Matthew 22:11-13) only those who have the right clothing are welcome. Why this rule?

Garments mean evident truths that a person “wears”. Princes and kings mean ruling truths or falsities that a person believes and uses to guide ones actions. When these are not from the Lord’s Word they lead one astray.

In Zephaniah 1:9-11, the text refers to areas of Jerusalem, where of all places God’s Word should be revered and believed and used to gain wisdom. Yet even there, there is mourning and wailing.

Maktesh means a mortar for grinding flour, and so perhaps a neighborhood of bakers. Merchants are traders, and are used to mean those who trade news of truths that they have heard. The whole idea here is that known truths are being defiled in the very place they should be honored.

In Zephaniah 1:12, 13, the idea has come about that either there is no God or that He doesn’t care. The houses and vineyards, the truths they live with and the new truths that they can drink in are gone, there is no more truth in the church.

In Zephaniah 1:14-17, there first is a prophecy of the Lord’s coming, “The great day of the Lord is near”.

We need to realize that words in the story that regard quickness or haste mostly mean sureness and importance. God doesn’t have a calendar; all time is the present with Him.

Then comes the reaction for those who have falsified His truth and turned away from his commandments -- ignored Him. They will be judged, and they won’t be happy about it.

In Zephaniah 1:18, the “truth” they honor -- the silver -- will be seen to have no value, and the appearance of good they put on -- the gold -- to be only paint.
