Zephaniah 1:2-9

The Coming Judgement on Judah


2 I will utterly sweep away everything
   from the face of the earth, says the Lord.
3 I will sweep away humans and animals;
   I will sweep away the birds of the air
   and the fish of the sea.
I will make the wicked stumble.*
   I will cut off humanity
   from the face of the earth, says the Lord.
4 I will stretch out my hand against Judah,
   and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
and I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal
   and the name of the idolatrous priests;*
5 those who bow down on the roofs
   to the host of the heavens;
those who bow down and swear to the Lord,
   but also swear by Milcom;*
6 those who have turned back from following the Lord,
   who have not sought the Lord or inquired of him.


7 Be silent before the Lord God!
   For the day of the Lord is at hand;
the Lord has prepared a sacrifice,
   he has consecrated his guests.
8 And on the day of the Lord’s sacrifice
I will punish the officials and the king’s sons
   and all who dress themselves in foreign attire.
9 On that day I will punish
   all who leap over the threshold,
who fill their master’s house
   with violence and fraud.
