Sefanias 2

1 Tenk efter og gå i dig selv, du folk som ikke blues,

2 før Guds råd føder - som agner farer dagen frem - før Herrens brennende vrede kommer over eder, før Herrens vredes dag kommer over eder!

3 Søk Herren, alle I saktmodige i landet, som holder hans lov! Søk rettferdighet, Søk saktmodighet! Kanskje I blir skjult på Herrens vredes dag.

4 For Gasa skal bli forlatt, og Askalon en ørken; Asdods folk skal jages ut midt på dagen, og Ekron skal rykkes op med rot.

5 Ve dem som bor i bygdene ute ved havet, kreterfolket! Herrens ord kommer over dig, Kana'an, du filistrenes land, jeg vil ødelegge dig så ingen skal bo i dig.

6 Og bygdene ute ved havet skal bli til beitemarker med gjemmesteder for hyrdene og med fehegn.

7 Og det skal bli en bygd for dem som blir igjen av Judas hus; der skal de ha sitt beite, i Askalons huser skal de hvile om aftenen. For Herren deres Gud skal se til dem og gjøre ende på deres fangenskap.

8 Jeg har hørt Moabs spott og Ammons barns hånsord, da de spottet mitt folk og bar sig overmodig at mot dets land.

9 Derfor, så sant jeg lever, sier Herren, hærskarenes Gud, Israels Gud, skal det gå Moab som Sodoma og Ammons barn som Gomorra: De skal bli neslers eie og en saltgrube og en ørken til evig tid; resten av mitt folk skal plyndre dem; de som blir igjen av mitt folk, skal ta dem i eie.

10 Således skal det gå dem for deres overmots skyld, fordi de hånte og bar sig overmodig at mot Herrens, hærskarenes Guds folk.

11 Forferdelig skal Herren vise sig mot dem; for han skal tilintetgjøre alle jordens guder, og alle hedningenes kyster skal tilbede ham, hvert folk på sitt sted.

12 Også I etiopere blir gjennemboret av mitt sverd.

13 Han rekker sin hånd ut mot Norden og ødelegger Assur og gjør Ninive til et øde, tørt som en ørken.

14 Der skal hjorder hvile; alle slags villdyrflokker, både pelikaner og pinnsvin, skal overnatte på søilehodene der; fuglesang høres i vinduene, grus ligger på dørtreskelen, for sederpanelet er revet av.

15 Dette er den jublende stad, som bodde så trygt, som sa i sitt hjerte: Jeg og ingen annen! Hvor den er blitt til en ørken, et leie for ville dyr! Hver den som går forbi, blåser av den og ryster hånlig sin hånd.



Exploring the Meaning of Sefanias 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.
