1 Besinna dig och kom till sans, du folk utan blygsel,

2 innan ännu rådslutet är fullgånget -- den dagen hastar fram, såsom agnar fara! -- och innan HERRENS vredes glöd kommer över eder, ja, innan HERRENS vredes dag kommer över eder.

3 Söken HERREN, alla I ödmjuke i landet, som hållen hans lag. Söken rättfärdighet, söken ödmjukhet; kanhända bliven I så beskärmade på HERRENS vredes dag.

4 Ty Gasa skall bliva övergivet och Askelon varda en ödemark; mitt på ljusa dagen skall Asdods folk drivas ut, och Ekron skall ryckas upp med roten.

5 Ve eder som bebon landsträckan utmed havet, I av keretéernas folk! Ett HERRENS ord skall nå dig, Kanaan, du filistéernas land; ja, jag skall fördärva dig, så att ingen mer bor i dig.

6 Och landsträckan utmed havet skall ligga såsom betesmarker, där herdarna hava sina brunnar och fåren sina fållor.

7 Och den skall tillfalla de kvarblivna av Juda hus såsom deras lott; där skola de föra sin boskap i bet. I Askelons hus skola de få lägra sig, när aftonen kommer. Ty HERREN, deras Gud, skall se till dem och skall åter upprätta dem.

8 Jag har hört Moabs smädelser och Ammons barns hån, huru de hava smädat mitt folk och förhävt sig mot dess land.

9 Därför, så sant jag lever, säger HERREN Sebaot, Israels Gud: det skall gå Moab såsom Sodom, och Ammons barn såsom Gomorra. Ett tillhåll för nässlor och en saltgrop skola de bliva, och en ödemark till evig tid. Kvarlevan av mitt folk skall plundra dem. och återstoden av min menighet skall få dem till sin arvedel.

10 Så skall det gå dem, till lön för deras högmod därför att de hava smädat och förhävt sig mot HERREN Sebaots folk.

11 Fruktansvärd skall HERREN bevisa sig mot dem; ty han skall göra alla jordens gudar maktlösa, och alla hedningarnas havsländer skola tillbedja honom, vart folk på sin ort --

12 också I etiopier, I som av mig bliven slagna med svärd.

13 Och han skall uträcka sin hand mot norr och fördärva Assur, han skall göra Nineve till en ödemark, förtorkat såsom en öken.

14 Och därinne skola hjordar lägra sig, allahanda vilda djur i skaror; pelikaner och rördrommar skola taga natthärbärge på pelarhuvudena därinne; fåglalåt skall ljuda i fönstren och förödelse bo på trösklarna, nu då cederpanelningen är bortriven.

15 Så skall det gå den glada staden, som satt så trygg, och som sade i sitt hjärta: »Jag och ingen annan!» Huru har den icke blivit en ödemark, en lägerstad för vilda djur! Alla som gå där fram skola vissla åt den och slå ihop händerna.



Exploring the Meaning of Sefanja 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.
