1 ¡Ay de la ciudad ensuciada y contaminada y opresora!

2 No escuchó la voz, ni recibió la disciplina; no se confió en el SEÑOR, no se acercó a su Dios.

3 Sus príncipes en medio de ella son leones bramadores; sus jueces, lobos de tarde que no dejan hueso para la mañana;

4 sus profetas, son livianos, varones prevaricadores; sus sacerdotes contaminaron el santuario, falsearon la ley.

5 El SEÑOR justo en medio de ella, no hará iniquidad; cada mañana sacará a luz su juicio, nunca falta; mas el perverso no tiene vergüenza.

6 Hice talar los gentiles; sus castillos están asolados; hice desiertas sus calles, hasta no quedar quien pase; sus ciudades están asoladas hasta no quedar hombre, hasta no quedar morador.

7 Diciendo: Ciertamente ahora me temerás; recibirás castigo, y no será derribada su habitación, todo lo cual yo visité sobre ella; mas ellos se levantaron de mañana y corrompieron todas sus obras.

8 Por tanto, esperadme, dijo el SEÑOR, el día que me levantaré al despojo; porque mi juicio es de coger los gentiles, juntar los reinos, para derramar sobre ellos mi enojo, toda la ira de mi furor; porque del fuego de mi celo será consumida toda la tierra.

9 Porque entonces volveré yo a los pueblos el lenguaje puro, para que todos invoquen el nombre del SEÑOR, para que de un solo consentimiento le sirvan.

10 De esa parte de los ríos de Etiopía, suplicarán a mí, la hija de mis esparcidos, me traerá presente.

11 En aquel día no te avergonzarás de ninguna de tus obras con las cuales te rebelaste contra mí; porque entonces quitaré de en medio de ti los que se alegran en tu soberbia, y nunca más te ensoberbecerás del monte de mi santidad.

12 Y dejaré en medio de ti un pueblo humilde y pobre, los cuales esperarán en el nombre del SEÑOR.

13 El remanente de Israel no hará iniquidad, ni dirá mentira, ni en boca de ellos se hallará lengua engañosa; porque ellos serán apacentados y dormirán, y no habrá quien los espante.

14 Canta, oh hija de Sion; da voces de júbilo, oh Israel; gózate y regocíjate de todo corazón, oh hija de Jerusalén.

15 El SEÑOR alejó tus juicios, echó fuera tu enemigo; El SEÑOR es Rey de Israel en medio de ti; nunca más verás el mal.

16 En aquel tiempo se dirá a Jerusalén: No temas; Sion, no se debiliten tus manos.

17 El SEÑOR está en medio de ti, poderoso, él salvará; se gozará sobre ti con alegría, callará de amor, se regocijará sobre ti con cantar.

18 Reuniré a los fastidiados por causa del largo tiempo; tuyos son; para quienes la confusión de ella era una carga.

19 He aquí, en aquel tiempo yo apremiaré a todos tus opresores; y salvaré a la coja, y recogeré la descarriada; y los pondré por alabanza y por renombre en toda la tierra de su confusión.

20 En aquel tiempo yo os traeré, en aquel tiempo yo os congregaré; porque yo os daré por renombre y por alabanza entre todos los pueblos de la tierra, cuando tornaré vuestros cautivos delante de vuestros ojos, dice el SEÑOR.


Exploring the Meaning of Sofonías 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."
