Sofonias 2

1 Congregai-vos, sim, congregai-vos, ó nação sem pudor;

2 antes que o decreto produza efeito, e o dia passe como a pragana; antes que venha sobre vós o furor da ira do Senhor, sim, antes que venha sobre vós o dia da ira do Senhor.

3 Buscai ao Senhor, vós todos os mansos da terra, que tendes posto por obra o seu juizo; buscai a justiça, buscai a mansidão; porventura sereis escondidos no dia da ira do Senhor.

4 Pois Gaza será desamparada, e Asquelom assolada; Asdode ao meio-dia será expelida, e Ecrom desarraigada.

5 Ai dos habitantes da borda do mar, da nação dos quereteus! A palavra do Senhor é contra vós, ó Canaã, terra dos filisteus; e eu vos destruirei, sem que fique sequer um habitante.

6 E a borda do mar será de pastagens, com cabanas para os pastores, e currais para os rebanhos.

7 E será a costa para o restante da casa de Judá, para que eles se apascentem ali; de tarde se deitarão nas casas de Asquelom; pois o Senhor seu Deus os visitará, e os fará tornar do seu cativeiro.

8 Eu ouvi o escárnio de Moabe, e os ultrajes dos filhos de Amom, com que escarneceram do meu povo, e se engrandeceram contra o seu termo.

9 Portanto diz o Senhor dos exércitos, o Deus de Israel: Tão certo como eu vivo, Moabe será como Sodoma, e os filhos de Amom como Gomorra, campo de urtigas e poços de sal, e desolação perpétua; o restante do meu povo os saqueará, e o restante da minha nação os possuira.

10 Isso terão em recompensa da sua soberba, porque usaram de escárnios, e se engrandeceram contra o povo do Senhor dos exércitos.

11 O Senhor se mostrará terrível contra eles; pois aniquilará todos os deuses da terra, e adorá-lo-ão, cada uma desde o seu lugar, todas as ilhas das nações.

12 Também vós, ó etíopes, sereis mortos pela minha espada.

13 Ainda ele estenderá a mão contra o Norte, e destruirá a Assíria; e fará de Nínive uma desolação, terra árida como o deserto.

14 E no meio dela se deitarão manadas, todas as feras do campo; e alojar-se-ão nos capitéis dela tanto o pelicano como o ouriço; a voz das aves se ouvirá nas janelas; e haverá desolação nos limiares; pois ele tem posto a descoberto a obra de cedro.

15 Esta é a cidade alegre, que vivia em segurança, que dizia no seu coração: Eu sou, e fora de mim não há outra. Como se tem ela tornado em desolação, em covil de feras! Todo o que passar por ela assobiará, e meneará a mão



Exploring the Meaning of Sofonias 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.
