1 Sammelt euch und kommt her, ihr feindseliges Volk,

2 ehe denn das Urteil ausgehe, daß ihr wie die Spreu bei Tage dahin fahrt; ehe denn des HERRN grimmiger Zorn über euch komme; ehe der Tag des Zornes des HERRN über euch komme.

3 Suchet den HERR, alle ihr Elenden im Lande, die ihr seine Rechte haltet; suchet Gerechtigkeit, suchet Demut, auf daß ihr am Tage des Zornes des HERRN möget verborgen werden.

4 Denn Gaza muß verlassen und Askalon wüst werden; Asdod soll am Mittag vertrieben und Ekron ausgewurzelt werden.

5 Weh denen, so am Meer hinab wohnen, dem Volk der Krether! Des HERRN Wort wird über euch kommen, du Kanaan, der Philister Land; ich will dich umbringen, daß niemand mehr da wohnen soll.

6 Es sollen am Meer hinab eitel Hirtenhäuser und Schafhürden sein.

7 Und dasselbe soll den übrigen vom Hause Juda zuteil werden, daß sie darauf weiden sollen. Des Abends sollen sie sich in den Häusern Askalons lagern, wenn sie nun der HERR, ihr Gott, wiederum heimgesucht und ihr Gefängnis gewendet hat.

8 Ich habe das Schmähen Moabs und das Lästern der Kinder Ammon gehört, womit sie mein Volk geschmäht und auf seinen Grenzen sich gerühmt haben.

9 Wohlan, so wahr ich lebe! spricht der HERR Zebaoth, der Gott Israels, Moab soll wie Sodom und die Kinder Ammon wie Gomorra werden, ja wie ein Nesselstrauch und eine Salzgrube und eine ewige Wüste. Die übrigen meines Volkes sollen sie berauben, und die Übriggebliebenen meines Volkes sollen sie erben.

10 Das soll ihnen aber begegnen für ihre Hoffart, daß sie des HERRN Zebaoth Volk geschmäht und sich gerühmt haben.

11 Schrecklich wird der HERR über sie sein, denn er wird alle Götter auf Erden vertilgen; und sollen ihn anbeten alle Inseln der Heiden, ein jeglicher an seinem Ort.

12 Auch sollt ihr Mohren durch mein Schwert erschlagen werden.

13 Und er wird seine Hand strecken gen Mitternacht und Assur umbringen. Ninive wird er öde machen, dürr wie eine Wüste,

14 daß darin sich lagern werden allerlei Tiere bei Haufen; auch Rohrdommeln und Igel werden wohnen in ihren Säulenknäufen, und Vögel werden in den Fenstern singen, und auf der Schwelle wird Verwüstung sein; denn die Zedernbretter sollen abgerissen werden.

15 Das ist die fröhliche Stadt, die so sicher wohnte und sprach in ihrem Herzen: Ich bin's, und keine mehr. Wie ist sie so wüst geworden, daß die Tiere darin wohnen! Und wer vorübergeht, pfeift sie an und klatscht mit der Hand über sie.


Exploring the Meaning of Zephanja 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.
