1 Khốn thay cho thành bạn nghịch và ô uế, làm sự bạo ngược!

2 Nó không nghe lời; không chịu sửa dạy; không nhờ cậy Ðức Giê-hô-va; không đến gần Ðức Chúa Trời mình.

3 Các quan trưởng ở giữa nó như sư tử gầm thét, các quan xét nó như muông sói ban đêm, không để dành chi lại đến sáng mai.

4 Các kẻ tiên tri nó đều là càn dỡ dối trá; các thầy tế lễ nó làm ô uế nơi thánh, và làm quanh quẹo luật pháp.

5 Ðức Giê-hô-va ở giữa nó là công bình, chẳng hề làm sự gian ác; mỗi buổi mai Ngài tỏ sự công bình mình ra giữa sự sáng, chẳng hề cách dứt; song kẻ bất nghĩa chẳng biết xấu hổ.

6 Ta đã diệt các dân tộc, tháp góc thành chúng nó đều hoang vu. Ta làm cho phố chợ nó ra vắng vẻ, đến nỗi không ai đi qua. Thành nó đã bị phá diệt, không còn một người nào, và chẳng có ai ở đó.

7 Ta đã bảo rằng: Ngươi chỉ nên kính sợ ta, chịu sửa dạy, thì chỗ ở nó sẽ không bị dứt đi, theo mọi sự ta đã định về nó. Nhưng chúng nó chổi dậy sớm, làm bại hoại mọi công việc mình.

8 Vậy nên, Ðức Giê-hô-va phán: Các ngươi khá đợi ta cho đến ngày ta sẽ dấy lên đặng cướp bắt; vì ta đã định thâu góp các dân tộc và nhóm hiệp các nước, hầu cho ta đổ sự thạnh nộ và cả sự nóng giận ta trên chúng nó, và cả đất sẽ bị nuốt bởi lửa ghen ta.

9 Vì bấy giờ ta sẽ ban môi miếng thanh sạch cho các dân, hầu cho chúng nó thảy đều kêu cầu danh Ðức Giê-hô-va, đặng một lòng hầu việc Ngài.

10 Những kẻ cầu khẩn ta, tức là con gái của kẻ tan lạc ta ở bên kia các sông Ê-thi-ô-bi, sẽ đem dâng lễ vật cho ta.

11 Trong ngày đó, ngươi sẽ không còn xấu hổ vì cớ mọi việc mình làm, là những việc đã phạm tội nghịch cùng ta; vì bấy giờ ta sẽ cất bỏ kẻ vui sướng kiêu ngạo khỏi giữa ngươi; rày về sau ngươi sẽ không còn kiêu ngạo trên núi thánh ta nữa.

12 Ta sẽ để sót lại ở giữa ngươi một dân khốn cùng nghèo thiếu, nó sẽ ẩn náu trong danh Ðức Giê-hô-va.

13 Những kẻ sót lại của Y-sơ-ra-ên sẽ không làm sự gian ác, không nói dối, không có lưỡi phỉnh gạt trong miệng chúng nó; vì chúng nó sẽ ăn và nằm ngủ, không ai làm cho kinh hãi.

14 Hỡi con gái Si-ôn, hãy hát! Hỡi Y-sơ-ra-ên, hãy kêu la! Hỡi con gái Giê-ru-sa-lem, hãy hết lòng mừng rỡ và vui thích!

15 Ðức Giê-hô-va đã trừ bỏ sự phán xét ngươi, khiến kẻ thù nghịch cách xa ngươi; Vua của Y-sơ-ra-ên, tức là Ðức Giê-hô-va, ở giữa ngươi, ngươi sẽ không gặp tai vạ nữa.

16 Trong ngày đó, người ta sẽ nói cùng Giê-ru-sa-lem rằng: Hỡi Si-ôn! chớ sợ, tay ngươi chớ yếu đuối!

17 Giê-hô-va Ðức Chúa Trời ngươi ở giữa ngươi; Ngài là Ðấng quyền năng sẽ giải cứu ngươi: Ngài sẽ vui mừng cả thể vì cớ ngươi; vì lòng yêu thương mình, Ngài sẽ nín lặng; và vì cớ ngươi Ngài sẽ ca hát mừng rỡ.

18 Ta sẽ nhóm lại những kẻ đương buồn rầu, vì cớ hội lớn; chúng nó đã ra từ ngươi, lấy sự xấu hổ làm gánh nặng.

19 Nầy, trong lúc đó, ta sẽ diệt mọi kẻ làm cho ngươi buồn rầu; ta sẽ cứu kẻ què, thâu kẻ đã bị đuổi, làm cho chúng nó được khen ngợi và nổi danh tiếng, tức là những kẻ đã bị sỉ nhục trong cả đất.

20 Trong lúc đó, ta sẽ đem các ngươi trở về, trong lúc đó ta sẽ nhóm các ngươi lại; vì ta sẽ làm cho các ngươi nổi danh tiếng và được khen lao giữa mọi dân trên đất, khi ta đem phu tù các ngươi về trước mặt các ngươi, Ðức Giê-hô-va có phán vậy.



Exploring the Meaning of Zephaniah 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."
