Zephaniah 3 Text (WEB)
  1. Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, the oppressing city!
  2. She didn't obey the voice. She didn't receive correction. She didn't trust in Yahweh. She didn't draw near to her God.
  3. Her princes in the midst of her are roaring lions. Her judges are evening wolves. They leave nothing until the next day.
  4. Her prophets are arrogant and treacherous people. Her priests have profaned the sanctuary. They have done violence to the law.
  5. Yahweh, in the midst of her, is righteous. He will do no wrong. Every morning he brings his justice to light. He doesn't fail, but the unjust know no shame.
  6. I have cut off nations. Their battlements are desolate. I have made their streets waste, so that no one passes by. Their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, so that there is no inhabitant.
  7. I said, "Just fear me. Receive correction, so that her dwelling won't be cut off, according to all that I have appointed concerning her." But they rose early and corrupted all their doings.
  8. "Therefore wait for me," says Yahweh, "until the day that I rise up to the prey, for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour on them my indignation, even all my fierce anger, for all the earth will be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
  9. For then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that they may all call on the name of Yahweh, to serve him shoulder to shoulder.
  10. From beyond the rivers of Cush, my worshipers, even the daughter of my dispersed people, will bring my offering.
  11. In that day you will not be disappointed for all your doings, in which you have transgressed against me; for then I will take away out of the midst of you your proudly exulting ones, and you will no more be haughty in my holy mountain.
  12. But I will leave in the midst of you an afflicted and poor people, and they will take refuge in the name of Yahweh.
  13. The remnant of Israel will not do iniquity, nor speak lies, neither will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth, for they will feed and lie down, and no one will make them afraid."
  14. Sing, daughter of Zion! Shout, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Jerusalem.
  15. Yahweh has taken away your judgments. He has thrown out your enemy. The King of Israel, Yahweh, is in the midst of you. You will not be afraid of evil any more.
  16. In that day, it will be said to Jerusalem, "Don't be afraid, Zion. Don't let your hands be weak."
  17. Yahweh, your God, is in the midst of you, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over you with joy. He will calm you in his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.
  18. I will remove those who grieve about the appointed feasts from you. They are a burden and a reproach to you.
  19. Behold, at that time I will deal with all those who afflict you, and I will save those who are lame, and gather those who were driven away. I will give them praise and honor, whose shame has been in all the earth.
  20. At that time will I bring you in, and at that time will I gather you; for I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says Yahweh.

Zephaniah 3 Text (Greek)
  1. ω η επιφανης και απολελυτρωμενη η πολις η
  2. ουκ εισηκουσεν φωνης ουκ εδεξατο παιδειαν επι τω κυριω ουκ επεποιθει και προς τον θεον αυτης ουκ
  3. οι αρχοντες αυτης εν αυτη ως λεοντες ωρυομενοι οι κριται αυτης ως λυκοι της αραβιας ουχ υπελιποντο εις το
  4. οι προφηται αυτης πνευματοφοροι ανδρες καταφρονηται οι ιερεις αυτης βεβηλουσιν τα αγια και ασεβουσιν
  5. ο δε κυριος δικαιος εν μεσω αυτης και ου μη ποιηση αδικον πρωι πρωι δωσει κριμα αυτου εις φως και ουκ απεκρυβη και ουκ εγνω αδικιαν εν απαιτησει και ουκ εις νεικος
  6. εν διαφθορα κατεσπασα υπερηφανους ηφανισθησαν γωνιαι αυτων εξερημωσω τας οδους αυτων το παραπαν του μη διοδευειν εξελιπον αι πολεις αυτων παρα το μηδενα υπαρχειν μηδε
  7. ειπα πλην φοβεισθε με και δεξασθε παιδειαν και ου μη εξολεθρευθητε εξ οφθαλμων αυτης παντα οσα εξεδικησα επ' αυτην ετοιμαζου ορθρισον διεφθαρται πασα η επιφυλλις
  8. δια τουτο υπομεινον με λεγει κυριος εις ημεραν αναστασεως μου εις μαρτυριον διοτι το κριμα μου εις συναγωγας εθνων του εισδεξασθαι βασιλεις του εκχεαι επ' αυτους πασαν οργην θυμου μου διοτι εν πυρι ζηλους μου καταναλωθησεται πασα η

  12. και υπολειψομαι εν σοι λαον πραυν και ταπεινον και ευλαβηθησονται απο του ονοματος

Zephaniah 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Væ provocatrix, et redempta civitas, columba !
  2. non audivit vocem, et non suscepit disciplinam ; in Domino non est confisa, ad Deum suum non appropinquavit.
  3. Principes ejus in medio ejus quasi leones rugientes ; judices ejus lupi vespere, non relinquebant in mane.
  4. Prophetæ ejus vesani, viri infideles ; sacerdotes ejus polluerunt sanctum, injuste egerunt contra legem.
  5. Dominus justus in medio ejus non faciet iniquitatem ; mane, mane judicium suum dabit in lucem, et non abscondetur ; nescivit autem iniquus confusionem.
  6. Disperdidi gentes, et dissipati sunt anguli earum ; desertas feci vias eorum, dum non est qui transeat ; desolatæ sunt civitates eorum, non remanente viro, neque ullo habitatore.
  7. Dixi : Attamen timebis me, suscipies disciplinam ; et non peribit habitaculum ejus, propter omnia in quibus visitavi eam : verumtamen diluculo surgentes corruperunt omnes cogitationes suas.
  8. Quapropter exspecta me, dicit Dominus, in die resurrectionis meæ in futurum : quia judicium meum ut congregem gentes, et colligam regna, et effundam super eos indignationem meam, omnem iram furoris mei : in igne enim zeli mei devorabitur omnis terra.
  9. Quia tunc reddam populis labium electum, ut invocent omnes in nomine Domini, et serviant ei humero uno.
  10. Ultra flumina Æthiopiæ, inde supplices mei ; filii dispersorum meorum deferent munus mihi.
  11. In die illa non confunderis super cunctis adinventionibus tuis, quibus prævaricata es in me, quia tunc auferam de medio tui magniloquos superbiæ tuæ, et non adjicies exaltari amplius in monte sancto meo.
  12. Et derelinquam in medio tui populum pauperem et egenum : et sperabunt in nomine Domini.
  13. Reliquiæ Israël non facient iniquitatem, nec loquentur mendacium, et non invenietur in ore eorum lingua dolosa, quoniam ipsi pascentur, et accubabunt, et non erit qui exterreat.
  14. Lauda, filia Sion ; jubila, Israël : lætare, et exsulta in omni corde, filia Jerusalem.
  15. Abstulit Dominus judicium tuum ; avertit inimicos tuos. Rex Israël Dominus in medio tui : non timebis malum ultra.
  16. In die illa dicetur Jerusalem : Noli timere ; Sion : Non dissolvantur manus tuæ.
  17. Dominus Deus tuus in medio tui fortis, ipse salvabit : gaudebit super te in lætitia, silebit in dilectione sua, exsultabit super te in laude.
  18. Nugas, qui a lege recesserant, congregabo, quia ex te erant : ut non ultra habeas super eis opprobrium.
  19. Ecce ego interficiam omnes qui afflixerunt te in tempore illo : et salvabo claudicantem, et eam quæ ejecta fuerat congregabo : et ponam eos in laudem, et in nomen, in omni terra confusionis eorum,
  20. in tempore illo quo adducam vos, et in tempore quo congregabo vos. Dabo enim vos in nomen, et in laudem omnibus populis terræ, cum convertero captivitatem vestram coram oculis vestris, dicit Dominus.
Zephaniah 3 Text (KJV)
  1. Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
  2. She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.
  3. Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
  4. Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
  5. The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.
  6. I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant.
  7. I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.
  8. Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
  9. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.
  10. From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering.
  11. In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.
  12. I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.
  13. The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
  14. Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
  15. The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.
  16. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
  17. The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
  18. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
  19. Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
  20. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.
