1 Ai da rebelde e contaminada, da cidade opressora!

2 Não escuta a voz, não aceita a correção, não confia no Senhor, nem se aproxima do seu Deus.

3 Os seus oficiais são leões rugidores no meio dela; os seus juízes são lobos da tarde, que nada deixam para o dia seguinte.

4 Os seus profetas são levianos, homens aleivosos; os seus sacerdotes profanam o santuário, e fazem violência à lei.

5 O Senhor é justo no meio dela; ele não comete iniqüidade; cada manhã traz o seu juízo à luz; nunca falta; o injusto, porém, não conhece a vergonha.

6 Exterminei as nações, as suas torres estão assoladas; fiz desertas as suas praças a ponto de não ficar quem passe por elas; as suas cidades foram destruídas, até não ficar ninguém, até não haver quem as habite.

7 Eu dizia: Certamente me temerás e aceitarás a correção; e assim a sua morada não seria destruída, conforme tudo o que eu havia determinado a respeito dela. Mas eles se levantaram de madrugada, e corromperam todas as suas obras.

8 Portanto esperai-me a mim, diz o Senhor, no dia em que eu me levantar para o despojo; porque o meu intento é ajuntar nações e congregar reinos, para sobre eles derramar a minha indignação, e todo o ardor da minha ira; pois esta terra toda será consumida pelo fogo do meu zelo.

9 Pois então darei lábios puros aos povos, para que todos invoquem o nome do Senhor, e o sirvam com o mesmo espírito.

10 Dalém dos rios da Etiópia os meus adoradores, a saber, a filha dos meus dispersos, trarão a minha oferta.

11 Naquele dia não te envergonharás de nenhuma das tuas obras, com que te rebelaste contra mim; porque então tirarei do meio de ti, os que exultam arrogantemente, e tu nunca mais te ensoberbeceras no meu santo monte.

12 Mas deixarei no meio de ti um povo humilde e pobre; e eles confiarão no nome do Senhor.

13 O remanescente de Israel não cometerá iniqüidade, nem proferirá mentira, e na sua boca não se achará língua enganosa; pois serão apascentados, e se deitarão, e não haverá quem os espante.

14 Canta alegremente, ó filha de Sião; rejubila, ó Israel; regozija-te, e exulta de todo o coração, ó filha de Jerusalém.

15 O Senhor afastou os juízos que havia contra ti, lançou fora o teu inimigo; o Rei de Israel, o Senhor, está no meio de ti; não temerás daqui em diante mal algum.

16 Naquele dia se dirá a Jerusalém: Não temas, ó Sião; não se enfraqueçam as tuas mãos.

17 O Senhor teu Deus está no meio de ti, poderoso para te salvar; ele se deleitará em ti com alegria; renovar-te-á no seu amor, regozijar-se-á em ti com júbilo.

18 Os que em tristeza suspiram pela assembléia solene, os quais te pertenciam, eu os congregarei; esses para os quais era um opróbrio o peso que estava sobre ela.

19 Eis que naquele tempo procederei contra todos os que te afligem; e salvarei a que coxeia, e recolherei a que foi expulsa; e deles farei um louvor e um nome em toda a terra em que têm sido envergonhados.

20 Naquele tempo vos trarei, naquele tempo vos recolherei; porque farei de vós um nome e um louvor entre todos os povos da terra, quando eu tornar o vosso cativeiro diante dos vossos olhos, diz o Senhor.


Exploring the Meaning of Sofonias 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."
