Zephanja 3

1 Wehe der Widerspenstigen und Befleckten, der bedrückenden Stadt!

2 Sie hat auf keine Stimme gehört, keine Zucht angenommen; auf Jehova hat sie nicht vertraut, ihrem Gott sich nicht genaht.

3 Ihre Fürsten in ihrer Mitte sind brüllende Löwen; ihre Richter sind Abendwölfe, die nichts für den Morgen übriglassen.

4 Ihre Propheten sind Prahler, treulose Männer; ihre Priester entweihen das Heiligtum, tun dem Gesetze Gewalt an.

5 Jehova ist gerecht in ihrer Mitte, er tut kein Unrecht; Morgen für Morgen stellt er sein Recht ans Licht, ohne zu fehlen. Aber der Ungerechte kennt keine Scham.

6 Ich habe Nationen ausgerottet, ihre Zinnen sind verödet; ich habe ihre Straßen verwüstet, daß niemand darüber zieht; ihre Städte sind verheert, daß niemand da ist, kein Bewohner mehr.

7 Ich sprach: Möchtest du mich nur fürchten, möchtest du Zucht annehmen! Und ihre Wohnung würde nicht ausgerottet werden, alles, was ich über sie verhängt habe. Allein sie haben sich früh aufgemacht, haben alle ihre Handlungen verderbt.

8 Darum harret auf mich, spricht Jehova, auf den Tag, da ich mich aufmache zur Beute! Denn mein Rechtsspruch ist, die Nationen zu versammeln, die Königreiche zusammenzubringen, um meinen Grimm über sie auszugießen, die ganze Glut meines Zornes; denn durch das Feuer meines Eifers wird die ganze Erde verzehrt werden.

9 Denn alsdann werde ich die Lippen der Völker in reine Lippen umwandeln, damit sie alle den Namen Jehovas anrufen und ihm einmütig dienen.

10 Von jenseit der Ströme Äthiopiens werden sie meine Flehenden, meine zerstreute Schar, mir als Opfergabe darbringen.

11 An jenem Tage wirst du dich nicht mehr all deiner Handlungen schämen müssen, womit du wider mich übertreten hast; denn alsdann werde ich deine stolz Frohlockenden aus deiner Mitte wegnehmen, und du wirst fortan nicht mehr hoffärtig sein auf meinem heiligen Berge.

12 Und ich werde in deiner Mitte ein elendes und armes Volk übriglassen, und sie werden auf den Namen Jehovas vertrauen.

13 Der Überrest Israels wird kein Unrecht tun und keine Lüge reden, und in ihrem Munde wird keine Zunge des Truges gefunden werden; denn sie werden weiden und lagern, und niemand wird sie aufschrecken. -

14 Jubele, Tochter Zion; jauchze, Israel! Freue dich und frohlocke von ganzem Herzen, Tochter Jerusalem!

15 Jehova hat deine Gerichte weggenommen, deinen Feind weggefegt; der König Israels, Jehova, ist in deiner Mitte, du wirst kein Unglück mehr sehen.

16 An jenem Tage wird zu Jerusalem gesagt werden: Fürchte dich nicht! Zion, laß deine Hände nicht erschlaffen!

17 Jehova, dein Gott, ist in deiner Mitte, ein rettender Held; er freut sich über dich mit Wonne, er schweigt in seiner Liebe, frohlockt über dich mit Jubel.

18 Die wegen der Festversammlung Trauernden werde ich sammeln; sie waren aus dir, Schmach lastete auf ihnen.

19 Siehe, ich werde zu jener Zeit handeln mit allen deinen Bedrückern, und die Hinkenden retten und die Vertriebenen sammeln; und ich werde sie zum Lobe und zum Namen machen in allen Ländern ihrer Schmach.

20 In jener Zeit werde ich euch herbeibringen und zu der Zeit euch sammeln; denn ich werde euch zum Namen und zum Lobe machen unter allen Völkern der Erde, wenn ich eure Gefangenschaft vor euren Augen wenden werde, spricht Jehova.


Exploring the Meaning of Zephanja 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."
