Zephaniah 1 Text (WEB)
  1. The word of Yahweh which came to Zephaniah, the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah, the son of Amon, king of Judah.
  2. I will utterly sweep away everything off of the surface of the earth, says Yahweh.
  3. I will sweep away man and animal. I will sweep away the birds of the sky, the fish of the sea, and the heaps of rubble with the wicked. I will cut off man from the surface of the earth, says Yahweh.
  4. I will stretch out my hand against Judah, and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place: the name of the idolatrous and pagan priests,
  5. those who worship the army of the sky on the housetops, those who worship and swear by Yahweh and also swear by Malcam,
  6. those who have turned back from following Yahweh, and those who haven't sought Yahweh nor inquired after him.
  7. Be silent at the presence of the Lord Yahweh, for the day of Yahweh is at hand. For Yahweh has prepared a sacrifice. He has consecrated his guests.
  8. It will happen in the day of Yahweh's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, the king's sons, and all those who are clothed with foreign clothing.
  9. In that day, I will punish all those who leap over the threshold, who fill their master's house with violence and deceit.
  10. In that day, says Yahweh, there will be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, a wailing from the second quarter, and a great crashing from the hills.
  11. Wail, you inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the people of Canaan are undone! All those who were loaded with silver are cut off.
  12. It will happen at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and I will punish the men who are settled on their dregs, who say in their heart, "Yahweh will not do good, neither will he do evil."
  13. Their wealth will become a spoil, and their houses a desolation. Yes, they will build houses, but won't inhabit them. They will plant vineyards, but won't drink their wine.
  14. The great day of Yahweh is near. It is near, and hurries greatly, the voice of the day of Yahweh. The mighty man cries there bitterly.
  15. That day is a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness,
  16. a day of the trumpet and alarm, against the fortified cities, and against the high battlements.
  17. I will bring distress on men, that they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against Yahweh, and their blood will be poured out like dust, and their flesh like dung.
  18. Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of Yahweh's wrath, but the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy; for he will make an end, yes, a terrible end, of all those who dwell in the land.
Zephaniah 1 Text (Hebrew)
  1. דבר־יהוה אשר היה אל־צפניה בן־כושי בן־גדליה בן־אמריה בן־חזקיה בימי יאשיהו בן־אמון מלך יהודה׃
  2. אסף אסף כל מעל פני האדמה נאם־יהוה׃
  3. אסף אדם ובהמה אסף עוף־השמים ודגי הים והמכשלות את־הרשעים והכרתי את־האדם מעל פני האדמה נאם־יהוה׃
  4. ונטיתי ידי על־יהודה ועל כל־יושבי ירושלם והכרתי מן־המקום הזה את־שאר הבעל את־שם הכמרים עם־הכהנים׃
  5. ואת־המשתחוים על־הגגות לצבא השמים ואת־המשתחוים הנשבעים ליהוה והנשבעים במלכם׃
  6. ואת־הנסוגים מאחרי יהוה ואשר לא־בקשו את־יהוה ולא דרשהו׃
  7. הס מפני אדני יהוה כי קרוב יום יהוה כי־הכין יהוה זבח הקדיש קראיו׃
  8. והיה ביום זבח יהוה ופקדתי על־השרים ועל־בני המלך ועל כל־הלבשים מלבוש נכרי׃
  9. ופקדתי על כל־הדולג על־המפתן ביום ההוא הממלאים בית אדניהם חמס ומרמה׃ ס
  10. והיה ביום ההוא נאם־יהוה קול צעקה משער הדגים ויללה מן־המשנה ושבר גדול מהגבעות׃
  11. הילילו ישבי המכתש כי נדמה כל־עם כנען נכרתו כל־נטילי כסף׃
  12. והיה בעת ההיא אחפש את־ירושלם בנרות ופקדתי על־האנשים הקפאים על־שמריהם האמרים בלבבם לא־ייטיב יהוה ולא ירע׃
  13. והיה חילם למשסה ובתיהם לשממה ובנו בתים ולא ישבו ונטעו כרמים ולא ישתו את־יינם׃
  14. קרוב יום־יהוה הגדול קרוב ומהר מאד קול יום יהוה מר צרח שם גבור׃
  15. יום עברה היום ההוא יום צרה ומצוקה יום שאה ומשואה יום חשך ואפלה יום עןן וערפל׃
  16. יום שופר ותרועה על הערים הבצרות ועל הפנות הגבהות׃
  17. והצרתי לאדם והלכו כעורים כי ליהוה חטאו ושפך דםם כעפר ולחםם כגללים׃
  18. גם־כספם גם־זהבם לא־יוכל להצילם ביום עברת יהוה ובאש קנאתו תאכל כל־הארץ כי־כלה אך־נבהלה יעשה את כל־ישבי הארץ׃ ס

Zephaniah 1 Text (Latin)
  1. Verbum Domini quod factum est ad Sophoniam, filium Chusi, filii Godoliæ, filii Amariæ, filii Ezeciæ, in diebus Josiæ, filii Amon, regis Judæ.
  2. Congregans congregabo omnia a facie terræ, dicit Dominus :
  3. congregans hominem et pecus, congregans volatilia cæli et pisces maris : et ruinæ impiorum erunt, et disperdam homines a facie terræ, dicit Dominus.
  4. Et extendam manum meam super Judam et super omnes habitantes Jerusalem : et disperdam de loco hoc reliquias Baal, et nomina ædituorum cum sacerdotibus ;
  5. et eos qui adorant super tecta militiam cæli, et adorant et jurant in Domino, et jurant in Melchom ;
  6. et qui avertuntur de post tergum Domini, et qui non quæsierunt Dominum, nec investigaverunt eum.
  7. Silete a facie Domini Dei, quia juxta est dies Domini : quia præparavit Dominus hostiam ; sanctificavit vocatos suos.
  8. Et erit : in die hostiæ Domini, visitabo super principes, et super filios regis, et super omnes qui induti sunt veste peregrina ;
  9. et visitabo super omnem qui arroganter ingreditur super limen in die illa, qui complent domum Domini Dei sui iniquitate et dolo.
  10. Et erit in die illa, dicit Dominus, vox clamoris a porta piscium, et ululatus a Secunda, et contritio magna a collibus.
  11. Ululate, habitatores Pilæ : conticuit omnis populus Chanaan, disperierunt omnes involuti argento.
  12. Et erit in tempore illo : scrutabor Jerusalem in lucernis, et visitabo super viros defixos in fæcibus suis, qui dicunt in cordibus suis : Non faciet bene Dominus, et non faciet male.
  13. Et erit fortitudo eorum in direptionem, et domus eorum in desertum : et ædificabunt domos, et non habitabunt ; et plantabunt vineas, et non bibent vinum earum.
  14. Juxta est dies Domini magnus : juxta est, et velox nimis. Vox diei Domini amara : tribulabitur ibi fortis.
  15. Dies iræ dies illa, dies tribulationis et angustiæ, dies calamitatis et miseriæ, dies tenebrarum et caliginis, dies nebulæ et turbinis,
  16. dies tubæ et clangoris super civitates munitas, et super angulos excelsos.
  17. Et tribulabo homines, et ambulabunt ut cæci, quia Domino peccaverunt ; et effundetur sanguis eorum sicut humus, et corpora eorum sicut stercora.
  18. Sed et argentum eorum et aurum eorum non poterit liberare eos in die iræ Domini : in igne zeli ejus devorabitur omnis terra, quia consummationem cum festinatione faciet cunctis habitantibus terram.
Zephaniah 1 Text (KJV)
  1. The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
  2. I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
  3. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
  4. I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
  5. And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;
  6. And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor inquired for him.
  7. Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.
  8. And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
  9. In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.
  10. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.
  11. Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
  12. And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.
  13. Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
  14. The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
  15. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
  16. A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
  17. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
  18. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
