Zephaniah 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The answer of LORD JEHOVAH that was upon Tsephania, son of Kushi, son of Gedalia, son of Amaria, the son of Khelakia, in the days of Yoshia, son of Amon, King of Judea

2To remove, I remove everything from the face of the Earth, says LORD JEHOVAH!

3I remove the children of men and beast, I remove the bird of Heaven and the fish of the sea and I shall bring a stumbling block upon sinners and I shall destroy the children of men from the face of the Earth, says LORD JEHOVAH!

4And I shall lift my hands against Yehuda and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and I shall destroy from this place the remnant of Baal, and the name of the Priests with the Priests

5And all who worship the hosts of Heaven have been on housetops, and all who have been worshiping and swearing by LORD JEHOVAH and swearing by Malcom

6And all who turn from LORD JEHOVAH and all who do not pray to LORD JEHOVAH and are not searching for him

7Stand in awe from before THE LORD OF LORDS, because that day of LORD JEHOVAH is near and LORD JEHOVAH has prepared sacrifices and he has invited his guests

8And it will be in the day of the sacrifice of LORD JEHOVAH, I shall adjudge against the Princes and against the children of the King and against all who have been wearing foreign clothing

9And I shall indict against all of the extortionists and the plunderers in that day because they have been filling the houses of their storage with plunder and deceit

10And it will be in that day, says LORD JEHOVAH, the sound of crying from the fish gate and wailing from another and great breaking from the hills

11Wail, inhabitants of Maktesh, because the entire people of Canaan is shocked, and all loaded with silver are destroyed

12And will be in that time, says LORD JEHOVAH, I shall search Jerusalem with a lamp and I shall indict against the men who despise their Watchmen and they say in their heart: “LORD JEHOVAH does no good, neither does evil!”

13Their possessions shall be for loot and their households for destruction, and they shall build houses and will not dwell in them, and they shall plant a vineyard and they shall not drink their wine

14The day great of LORD JEHOVAH is near, it is very near and it hastens; the voice of the day of LORD JEHOVAH is bitter and hard and severe

15The day is of wrath, the day is the day of trouble and of adversity; the day is of trouble and of destruction; the day is of darkness and of thick darkness; the day is of cloud and of dark fog!

16The day is of the trumpet and of shouting against the fortress cities and against the corners of the high places

17And I shall afflict the children of man so that they will walk as the blind, because they have sinned against LORD JEHOVAH, and their blood shall be poured out like dust and their flesh like dung

18And their gold and their silver cannot save them in the day of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH, and in the fire of his zeal all the Earth shall be consumed, because LORD JEHOVAH makes tumult and an end upon all its inhabitants of the Earth
