1 Ve henne, den gensträviga och befläckade staden, förtryckets stad!

2 Hon hör icke på någons röst, hon tager ej emot tuktan; på HERREN förtröstar hon icke, till sin Gud vill hon ej komma.

3 Furstarna därinne äro rytande lejon; hennes domare äro såsom vargar om aftonen, de spara intet till morgondagen.

4 Hennes profeter äro stortaliga trolösa män; hennes präster ohelga vad heligt är, de våldföra lagen.

5 HERREN är rättfärdig därinne, han gör intet orätt. var morgon låter han sin rätt gå fram i ljuset, den utebliver aldrig; men de orättfärdiga veta icke av någon skam.

6 Jag utrotade folkslag, deras murtorn blevo förstörda, deras gator gjorde jag öde, så att ingen mer gick där fram; deras städer blevo förhärjade, så att de lågo tomma på människor, blottade på invånare.

7 Jag tillsade henne att allenast frukta mig och taga emot tuktan; då skulle hennes boning undgå förstörelse, med allt vad jag hade givit i hennes vård. Men i stället ävlades de att göra allt vad fördärvligt var.

8 Därför man I vänta på mig, säger HERREN, och på den dag jag står upp för att taga byte. Ty mitt domslut är: jag skall församla folk och hämta tillhopa konungariken, för att utgjuta över dem min ogunst, all min vredes glöd; ty av min nitälskans eld skall hela jorden förtäras.

9 Se, då skall jag giva åt folken nya, renade läppar, så att de allasammans åkalla HERRENS namn och endräktigt tjäna honom.

10 Ända ifrån länderna bortom Etiopiens strömmar skola mina tillbedjare, mitt förskingrade folk, frambära offer åt mig.

11 På den tiden skall du slippa att längre blygas för alla de överträdelser som du har begått mot mig. Ty då skall jag avskilja från dig dem som nu jubla så segerstolt i dig; och du skall då icke vidare förhäva dig på mitt heliga berg.

12 Men jag skall lämna kvar i dig ett folk, betryckt och armt; och de skola förtrösta på HERRENS namn.

13 Kvarlevan av Israel skall då icke mer göra något orätt, ej heller tala lögn, och i deras mun skall icke finnas en falsk tunga. Ja, de skola få beta och ligga i ro, utan att någon förskräcker dem.

14 Jubla, du dotter Sion, höj glädjerop, du Israel; var glad och fröjda dig av allt hjärta, du dotter Jerusalem.

15 HERREN har avvänt straffdomarna ifrån dig, han har röjt din fiende ur vägen. HERREN, som bor i dig, är Israels konung; du behöver ej mer frukta något ont.

16 På den tiden skall det sägas till Jerusalem; »Frukta icke, Sion låt ej modet falla.

17 HERREN, din Gud, bor i dig en hjälte som kan frälsa. Han gläder sig över dig med lust, han tiger stilla i sin kärlek, han fröjdas över dig med jubel.»

18 Dem som med bedrövelse måste sakna högtiderna, dem skall jag då församla, dem som levde skilda från dig, du som själv bar smälekens börda.

19 Ty se, jag skall på den tiden utföra mitt verk på alla dina förtryckare. jag skall frälsa de haltande och hämta tillhopa de fördrivna, jag skall låta dem bliva ett ämne till lovsång och till berömmelse på hela jorden, där de voro så smädade.

20 På den tiden skall jag låta eder komma tillbaka ja, på den tiden skall jag hämta eder tillhopa. Ty jag vill låta eder bliva ett ämne till berömmelse och till lovsång bland alla jordens folk, i det att jag åter upprättar eder, så att I sen det med egna ögon, säger HERREN.



Exploring the Meaning of Sefanja 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."
