The wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 whichH834 cameH1961 to ZephaniahH6846 the sonH1121 of Cushi,H3569 the sonH1121 of Gedaliah,H1436 the sonH1121 of Amariah,H568 the sonH1121 of Hizkiah,H2396 in the daysH3117 of JosiahH2977 the sonH1121 of Amon,H526 kingH4428 of Judah.H3063
I will utterly consumeH5486 allH3605 things from offH5921 H6440 the land,H127 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
I will consumeH5486 manH120 and beast;H929 I will consumeH5486 the fowlsH5775 of the heaven,H8064 and the fishesH1709 of the sea,H3220 and the stumbling blocksH4384 with the wicked:H7563 and I will cutH3772 offH5921 H6440 manH120 from offH5921 H6440 the land,H127 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
I will also stretchH5186 out my handH3027 on Judah,H3063 and on allH3605 the inhabitantsH3427 of Jerusalem;H3389 and I will cutH3772 off the remnantH7605 of BaalH1168 from thisH2088 place,H4725 and the nameH8034 of the ChemarimsH3649 with the priests;H3548
And them that worshipH7812 the hostH6635 of heavenH8064 on the housetops;H1406 and them that worshipH7812 and that swearH7650 by the LORD,H3068 and that swearH7650 by Malcham;H4445
And them that are turnedH5472 backH5253 from the LORD;H3068 and those that have not soughtH1245 the LORD,H3068 norH3808 inquiredH1875 for him.
Hold your peaceH2013 at the presenceH6440 of the LordH136 GOD:H3069 for the dayH3117 of the LORDH3068 is at hand:H7138 for the LORDH3068 has preparedH3559 a sacrifice,H2077 he has bidH6942 his guests.H7121
And it shall comeH1961 to pass in the dayH3117 of the LORD'sH3068 sacrifice,H2077 that I will punishH6485 the princes,H8269 and the king'sH4428 children,H1121 and allH3605 such as are clothedH3847 with strangeH5237 apparel.H4403
In the sameH1931 dayH3117 also will I punishH6485 allH3605 those that leapH1801 onH5921 the threshold,H4670 which fillH4390 their masters'H113 housesH1004 with violenceH2555 and deceit.H4820
And it shall comeH1961 to pass in that day,H3117 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that there shall be the noiseH6963 of a cryH6818 from the fishH1709 gate,H8179 and an howlingH3213 from the second,H4932 and a greatH1419 crashingH7667 from the hills.H1389
Howl,H3213 you inhabitantsH3427 of Maktesh,H4389 for allH3605 the merchantH3667 peopleH5971 are cutH1820 down; allH3605 they that bearH5187 silverH3701 are cutH3772 off.
And it shall comeH1961 to pass at that time,H6256 that I will searchH2664 JerusalemH3389 with candles,H5216 and punishH6485 the menH582 that are settledH7087 onH5921 their lees:H8105 that sayH559 in their heart,H3824 The LORDH3068 will not do good,H3190 neitherH3808 will he do evil.H7451
Therefore their goodsH2428 shall becomeH1961 a booty,H4933 and their housesH1004 a desolation:H8047 they shall also buildH1129 houses,H1004 but not inhabitH3427 them; and they shall plantH5193 vineyards,H3754 but not drinkH8354 the wineH3196 thereof.
The greatH1419 dayH3117 of the LORDH3068 is near,H7138 it is near,H7138 and hastensH4116 greatly,H3966 even the voiceH6963 of the dayH3117 of the LORD:H3068 the mightyH1368 man shall cryH6873 thereH8033 bitterly.H4751
That dayH3117 is a dayH3117 of wrath,H5678 a dayH3117 of troubleH6869 and distress,H4691 a dayH3117 of devastationH7722 and desolation,H4875 a dayH3117 of darknessH2822 and gloominess,H653 a dayH3117 of cloudsH6051 and thick darkness,H6205
A dayH3117 of the trumpetH7782 and alarmH8643 againstH5921 the fencedH1219 cities,H5892 and againstH5921 the highH1364 towers.H6438
And I will bring distressH6887 on men,H120 that they shall walkH1980 like blindH5787 men, becauseH3588 they have sinnedH2398 against the LORD:H3068 and their bloodH1818 shall be pouredH8210 out as dust,H6083 and their fleshH3894 as the dung.H1561
NeitherH3808 their silverH3701 norH1571 their goldH2091 shall be ableH3201 to deliverH5337 them in the dayH3117 of the LORD'sH3068 wrath;H5678 but the wholeH3605 landH776 shall be devouredH398 by the fireH784 of his jealousy:H7068 for he shall makeH6213 even a speedyH926 riddanceH3617 of allH3605 them that dwellH3427 in the land.H776
