1 Væ provocatrix, et redempta civitas, columba !

2 non audivit vocem, et non suscepit disciplinam ; in Domino non est confisa, ad Deum suum non appropinquavit.

3 Principes ejus in medio ejus quasi leones rugientes ; judices ejus lupi vespere, non relinquebant in mane.

4 Prophetæ ejus vesani, viri infideles ; sacerdotes ejus polluerunt sanctum, injuste egerunt contra legem.

5 Dominus justus in medio ejus non faciet iniquitatem ; mane, mane judicium suum dabit in lucem, et non abscondetur ; nescivit autem iniquus confusionem.

6 Disperdidi gentes, et dissipati sunt anguli earum ; desertas feci vias eorum, dum non est qui transeat ; desolatæ sunt civitates eorum, non remanente viro, neque ullo habitatore.

7 Dixi : Attamen timebis me, suscipies disciplinam ; et non peribit habitaculum ejus, propter omnia in quibus visitavi eam : verumtamen diluculo surgentes corruperunt omnes cogitationes suas.

8 Quapropter exspecta me, dicit Dominus, in die resurrectionis meæ in futurum : quia judicium meum ut congregem gentes, et colligam regna, et effundam super eos indignationem meam, omnem iram furoris mei : in igne enim zeli mei devorabitur omnis terra.

9 Quia tunc reddam populis labium electum, ut invocent omnes in nomine Domini, et serviant ei humero uno.

10 Ultra flumina Æthiopiæ, inde supplices mei ; filii dispersorum meorum deferent munus mihi.

11 In die illa non confunderis super cunctis adinventionibus tuis, quibus prævaricata es in me, quia tunc auferam de medio tui magniloquos superbiæ tuæ, et non adjicies exaltari amplius in monte sancto meo.

12 Et derelinquam in medio tui populum pauperem et egenum : et sperabunt in nomine Domini.

13 Reliquiæ Israël non facient iniquitatem, nec loquentur mendacium, et non invenietur in ore eorum lingua dolosa, quoniam ipsi pascentur, et accubabunt, et non erit qui exterreat.

14 Lauda, filia Sion ; jubila, Israël : lætare, et exsulta in omni corde, filia Jerusalem.

15 Abstulit Dominus judicium tuum ; avertit inimicos tuos. Rex Israël Dominus in medio tui : non timebis malum ultra.

16 In die illa dicetur Jerusalem : Noli timere ; Sion : Non dissolvantur manus tuæ.

17 Dominus Deus tuus in medio tui fortis, ipse salvabit : gaudebit super te in lætitia, silebit in dilectione sua, exsultabit super te in laude.

18 Nugas, qui a lege recesserant, congregabo, quia ex te erant : ut non ultra habeas super eis opprobrium.

19 Ecce ego interficiam omnes qui afflixerunt te in tempore illo : et salvabo claudicantem, et eam quæ ejecta fuerat congregabo : et ponam eos in laudem, et in nomen, in omni terra confusionis eorum,

20 in tempore illo quo adducam vos, et in tempore quo congregabo vos. Dabo enim vos in nomen, et in laudem omnibus populis terræ, cum convertero captivitatem vestram coram oculis vestris, dicit Dominus.



Exploring the Meaning of Zephanias 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."
