Zephaniah 2 Text (WEB)
  1. Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, you nation that has no shame,
  2. before the appointed time when the day passes as the chaff, before the fierce anger of Yahweh comes on you, before the day of Yahweh's anger comes on you.
  3. Seek Yahweh, all you humble of the land, who have kept his ordinances. Seek righteousness. Seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of Yahweh's anger.
  4. For Gaza will be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation. They will drive out Ashdod at noonday, and Ekron will be rooted up.
  5. Woe to the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! The word of Yahweh is against you, Canaan, the land of the Philistines. I will destroy you, that there will be no inhabitant.
  6. The sea coast will be pastures, with cottages for shepherds and folds for flocks.
  7. The coast will be for the remnant of the house of Judah. They will find pasture. In the houses of Ashkelon, they will lie down in the evening, for Yahweh, their God, will visit them, and restore them.
  8. I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the insults of the children of Ammon, with which they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border.
  9. Therefore as I live, says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, surely Moab will be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, a possession of nettles, and salt pits, and a perpetual desolation. The remnant of my people will plunder them, and the survivors of my nation will inherit them.
  10. This they will have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of Yahweh of Armies.
  11. Yahweh will be awesome to them, for he will famish all the gods of the land. Men will worship him, everyone from his place, even all the shores of the nations.
  12. You Cushites also, you will be killed by my sword.
  13. He will stretch out his hand against the north, destroy Assyria, and will make Nineveh a desolation, as dry as the wilderness.
  14. Herds will lie down in the midst of her, all the animals of the nations. Both the pelican and the porcupine will lodge in its capitals. Their calls will echo through the windows. Desolation will be in the thresholds, for he has laid bare the cedar beams.
  15. This is the joyous city that lived carelessly, that said in her heart, "I am, and there is none besides me." How she has become a desolation, a place for animals to lie down in! Everyone who passes by her will hiss, and shake their fists.
Zephaniah 2 Text (Hebrew)
  1. התקוששו וקושו הגוי לא נכסף׃
  2. בטרם לדת חק כמץ עבר יום בטרם לא־יבוא עליכם חרון אף־יהוה בטרם לא־יבוא עליכם יום אף־יהוה׃
  3. בקשו את־יהוה כל־ענוי הארץ אשר משפטו פעלו בקשו־צדק בקשו ענוה אולי תסתרו ביום אף־יהוה׃
  4. כי עזה עזובה תהיה ואשקלון לשממה אשדוד בצהרים יגרשוה ועקרון תעקר׃ ס
  5. הוי ישבי חבל הים גוי כרתים דבר־יהוה עליכם כנען ארץ פלשתים והאבדתיך מאין יושב׃
  6. והיתה חבל הים נות כרת רעים וגדרות צאן׃
  7. והיה חבל לשארית בית יהודה עליהם ירעון בבתי אשקלון בערב ירבצון כי יפקדם יהוה אלהיהם ושב ׃
  8. שמעתי חרפת מואב וגדופי בני עמון אשר חרפו את־עמי ויגדילו על־גבולם׃
  9. לכן חי־אני נאם יהוה צבאות אלהי ישראל כי־מואב כסדם תהיה ובני עמון כעמרה ממשק חרול ומכרה־מלח ושממה עד־עולם שארית עמי יבזום ויתר ינחלום׃
  10. זאת להם תחת גאונם כי חרפו ויגדלו על־עם יהוה צבאות׃
  11. נורא יהוה עליהם כי רזה את כל־אלהי הארץ וישתחוו־לו איש ממקומו כל איי הגוים׃
  12. גם־אתם כושים חללי חרבי המה׃
  13. ויט ידו על־צפון ויאבד את־אשור וישם את־נינוה לשממה ציה כמדבר׃
  14. ורבצו בתוכה עדרים כל־חיתו־גוי גם־קאת גם־קפד בכפתריה ילינו קול ישורר בחלון חרב בסף כי ארזה ערה׃
  15. זאת העיר העליזה היושבת לבטח האמרה בלבבה אני ואפסי עוד איך היתה לשמה מרבץ לחיה כל עובר עליה ישרק יניע ידו׃ ס

  1. συναχθητε και συνδεθητε το εθνος το
  2. προ του γενεσθαι υμας ως ανθος παραπορευομενον προ του επελθειν εφ' υμας οργην κυριου προ του επελθειν εφ' υμας ημεραν θυμου
  3. ζητησατε τον κυριον παντες ταπεινοι γης κριμα εργαζεσθε και δικαιοσυνην ζητησατε και αποκρινεσθε αυτα οπως σκεπασθητε εν ημερα οργης
  4. διοτι γαζα διηρπασμενη εσται και ασκαλων εσται εις αφανισμον και αζωτος μεσημβριας εκριφησεται και ακκαρων
  5. ουαι οι κατοικουντες το σχοινισμα της θαλασσης παροικοι κρητων λογος κυριου εφ' υμας χανααν γη αλλοφυλων και απολω υμας εκ
  6. και εσται κρητη νομη ποιμνιων και μανδρα
  7. και εσται το σχοινισμα της θαλασσης τοις καταλοιποις οικου ιουδα επ' αυτους νεμησονται εν τοις οικοις ασκαλωνος δειλης καταλυσουσιν απο προσωπου υιων ιουδα οτι επεσκεπται αυτους κυριος ο θεος αυτων και απεστρεψε την αιχμαλωσιαν
  8. ηκουσα ονειδισμους μωαβ και κονδυλισμους υιων αμμων εν οις ωνειδιζον τον λαον μου και εμεγαλυνοντο επι τα ορια
  9. δια τουτο ζω εγω λεγει κυριος των δυναμεων ο θεος ισραηλ διοτι μωαβ ως σοδομα εσται και οι υιοι αμμων ως γομορρα και δαμασκος εκλελειμμενη ως θιμωνια αλωνος και ηφανισμενη εις τον αιωνα και οι καταλοιποι λαου μου διαρπωνται αυτους και οι καταλοιποι εθνους μου κληρονομησουσιν
  10. αυτη αυτοις αντι της υβρεως αυτων διοτι ωνειδισαν και εμεγαλυνθησαν επι τον κυριον τον
  11. επιφανησεται κυριος επ' αυτους και εξολεθρευσει παντας τους θεους των εθνων της γης και προσκυνησουσιν αυτω εκαστος εκ του τοπου αυτου πασαι αι νησοι των
  12. και υμεις αιθιοπες τραυματιαι ρομφαιας μου
  13. και εκτενει την χειρα αυτου επι βορραν και απολει τον ασσυριον και θησει την νινευη εις αφανισμον ανυδρον ως
  14. και νεμησονται εν μεσω αυτης ποιμνια και παντα τα θηρια της γης και χαμαιλεοντες και εχινοι εν τοις φατνωμασιν αυτης κοιτασθησονται και θηρια φωνησει εν τοις διορυγμασιν αυτης κορακες εν τοις πυλωσιν αυτης διοτι κεδρος το αναστημα
  15. αυτη η πολις η φαυλιστρια η κατοικουσα επ' ελπιδι η λεγουσα εν καρδια αυτης εγω ειμι και ουκ εστιν μετ' εμε ετι πως εγενηθη εις αφανισμον νομη θηριων πας ο διαπορευομενος δι' αυτης συριει και κινησει τας χειρας
Zephaniah 2 Text (Latin)
  1. Convenite, congregamini, gens non amabilis,
  2. priusquam pariat jussio quasi pulverem transeuntem diem, antequam veniat super vos ira furoris Domini, antequam veniat super vos dies indignationis Domini.
  3. Quærite Dominum, omnes mansueti terræ, qui judicium ejus estis operati ; quærite justum, quærite mansuetum, si quomodo abscondamini in die furoris Domini.
  4. Quia Gaza destructa erit, et Ascalon in desertum : Azotum in meridie ejicient, et Accaron eradicabitur.
  5. Væ qui habitatis funiculum maris, gens perditorum ! verbum Domini super vos, Chanaan, terra Philisthinorum ; et disperdam te, ita ut non sit inhabitator.
  6. Et erit funiculus maris requies pastorum, et caulæ pecorum ;
  7. et erit funiculus ejus qui remanserit de domo Juda : ibi pascentur, in domibus Ascalonis ad vesperam requiescent, quia visitabit eos Dominus Deus eorum, et avertet captivitatem eorum.
  8. Audivi opprobrium Moab, et blasphemias filiorum Ammon, quæ exprobraverunt populo meo, et magnificati sunt super terminos eorum.
  9. Propterea vivo ego, dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël, quia Moab ut Sodoma erit, et filii Ammon quasi Gomorrha : siccitas spinarum, et acervi salis, et desertum usque in æternum : reliquiæ populi mei diripient eos, et residui gentis meæ possidebunt illos.
  10. Hoc eis eveniet pro superbia sua, quia blasphemaverunt et magnificati sunt super populum Domini exercituum.
  11. Horribilis Dominus super eos, et attenuabit omnes deos terræ : et adorabunt eum viri de loco suo, omnes insulæ gentium.
  12. Sed et vos, Æthiopes, interfecti gladio meo eritis.
  13. Et extendet manum suam super aquilonem, et perdet Assur, et ponet speciosam in solitudinem, et in invium, et quasi desertum.
  14. Et accubabunt in medio ejus greges, omnes bestiæ gentium ; et onocrotalus et ericius in liminibus ejus morabuntur : vox cantantis in fenestra, corvus in superliminari, quoniam attenuabo robur ejus.
  15. Hæc est civitas gloriosa habitans in confidentia, quæ dicebat in corde suo : Ego sum, et extra me non est alia amplius : quomodo facta est in desertum cubile bestiæ ? omnis qui transit per eam sibilabit, et movebit manum suam.
Zephaniah 2 Text (KJV)
  1. Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
  2. Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD's anger come upon you.
  3. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.
  4. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
  5. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.
  6. And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.
  7. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.
  8. I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border.
  9. Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.
  10. This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.
  11. The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen.
  12. Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain by my sword.
  13. And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like a wilderness.
  14. And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern shall lodge in the upper lintels of it; their voice shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be in the thresholds: for he shall uncover the cedar work.
  15. This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none beside me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand.
