1 Az Úr igéje, a melyet szólt Sofóniásnak, a Kusi fiának, a ki Gedáliás fia, a ki Amariás fia, a ki Ezékiás fia, Jósiásnak az Amon fiának idejében.

2 Elvesztek, mindent elvesztek e föld színérõl, azt mondja az Úr.

3 Elvesztek embert és barmot; elvesztem az ég madarait, és a tenger halait és a botránkoztatás eszközeit a hitetlenekkel együtt; az embert is kiirtom a föld színérõl, azt mondja az Úr.

4 És kinyújtom kezemet Júda ellen és Jeruzsálem minden lakója ellen, és kiirtom e helyrõl a Baál maradékát, a bálványpapok nevét a papokkal együtt;

5 Azokat is, a kik a háztetõkön az ég seregének hajlonganak; és azokat, a kik hajlonganak, esküdvén az Úrra, de esküsznek az õ Molokjokra is;

6 Azokat is, a kik elfordultak az Úr követésétõl, és a kik nem keresik az Urat és nem tudakoznak felõle.

7 Hallgass az Úr Isten orczája elõtt, mert közel van az Úrnak napja, mert áldozatot készíttetett az Úr, megszentelte az õ hivatalosait.

8 És lészen az Úr áldozatának napján: megfenyítem majd a fejedelmeket és a királyok fiait és mindazokat, a kik idegen öltözetbe öltöztek.

9 És megfenyítem mindazt, a ki a küszöbön ugrál ama napon, a kik erõszakkal és csalárdsággal töltik meg az õ uroknak házát.

10 És lészen azon a napon, azt mondja az Úr, kiáltó szózat a hal-kaputól fogva, és jajgatás az alsó városból, és nagy recsegés a halmok felõl.

11 Jajgassatok, ti, a kik a völgyben laktok, mert elpusztul az egész kalmár nép, kivágattatik minden, a ki ezüstöt mér.

12 És lészen az idõben, megmotozom majd Jeruzsálemet szövétnekkel, és megfenyítem azokat, a kik saját seprejökön hevernek, a kik ezt mondják szívökben: sem jót, sem rosszat nem cselekszik az Úr.

13 És gazdagságuk prédává lesz, házaik pedig pusztává. Építnek házakat, de nem lakják, és plántálnak szõlõket, de nem iszszák azoknak borát.

14 Közel van az Úrnak nagy napja, közel van és igen siet; az Úr napjának szava keserves, kiáltoz azon a hõs [is.]

15 Haragnak napja az a nap, szorongatásnak és nyomorúságnak napja; pusztításnak és pusztulásnak napja; sötétségnek és homálynak napja; felhõnek és borúnak napja.

16 Kürtnek és tárogatónak napja a megerõsített városok ellen és a büszke tornyok ellen!

17 És megszorongatom az embereket és járnak, mint a vakok, mert vétkeztek az Úr ellen, és kiontatik vérök, mint a por, és testök, mint szemét.

18 Sem ezüstjök, sem aranyuk nem szabadíthatja meg õket az Úr haragjának napján, és az õ féltõ szeretetének tüze megemészti az egész földet; mert véget vet, bizony hirtelen vet véget e föld minden lakosának.


Exploring the Meaning of Sofoniás 1

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.
