1 ADUNATEVI come della stoppia; adunatevi, o nazione rincrescevole.

2 Avanti che il decreto partorisca, e il giorno sia passato a guisa di pula; avanti che venga sopra voi l’ardor dell’ira del Signore; avanti che venga sopra voi il giorno dell’ira del Signore;

3 voi, tutti i mansueti del paese, che fate ciò ch’egli ordina, cercate il Signore; cercate giustizia, procacciate mansuetudine; forse sarete nascosti nel giorno dell’ira del Signore.

4 Perciocchè Gaza sarà abbandonata, ed Aschelon sarà messa in desolazione; Asdod sarà scacciata in pien mezzodì, ed Ecron sarà diradicato.

5 Guai a quelli che abitano nella contrada della marine, alla nazione de’ Cheretei! la parola del Signore è contro a voi, o Cananei, o paese de’ Filistei; ed io ti distruggerò, talchè in te non abiterà più alcuno.

6 E la contrada della marina sarà tutta mandre, e capanne di pastori, e stabbi di gregge.

7 E quella contrada sarà per lo rimanente della casa di Giuda; essi pastureranno in que’ luoghi; la sera giaceranno nelle case di Aschelon; perciocchè il Signore Iddio loro li visiterà, e li ritrarrà di cattività.

8 Io ho udito il vituperio di Moab, e gli oltraggi de’ figliuoli di Ammon, i quali han fatto vituperio al mio popolo, e si sono ingranditi sopra i lor confini.

9 Perciò, come io vivo, dice il Signor degli eserciti, l’Iddio d’Israele, Moab sarà come Sodoma, e i figliuoli di Ammon come Gomorra: un luogo abbandonato alle lappole, e una salina, e un deserto in perpetuo; il rimanente del mio popolo li prederà, e il resto della mia nazione li possederà.

10 Questo avverrà loro per la loro alterezza; perciocchè han fatto vituperio al popolo del Signor degli eserciti, e si sono elevati contro a lui.

11 Il Signore sarà terribile contro a loro; perciocchè egli farà venir meno tutti gl’iddii della terra; e ciascuno dal suo luogo l’adorerà, tutte le isole delle genti.

12 Anche voi, Etiopi, sarete uccisi con la mia spada.

13 Egli stenderà eziandio le sua mano sopra il Settentrione, e distruggerà Assur, e metterà Ninive in desolazione, in luogo arido, come un deserto.

14 E le gregge, tutte le bestie delle genti giaceranno nel mezzo di lei; e il pellicano, e la civetta albergheranno ne’ frontispizii de’ lor portali; canteranno con la lor voce sopra le finestre; desolazione sarà nelle soglie; perciocchè quella sarà spogliata de’ suoi cedri.

15 Tal sarà la città trionfante, che abitava in sicurtà, che diceva nel cuor suo: Io son dessa, e non vi è altri che me. Come è ella stata ridotta in desolazione, in ricetto di bestie! chiunque passerà presso di essa zufolerà, e moverà la mano.


Exploring the Meaning of Zephaniah 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.
