Zephaniah 1:1 Parallel
Commentary
Geneva Study Bible

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.

The Argument - Seeing the great rebellion of the people, and that there was now no hope of amendment, he gives notice of the great judgment of God, which was at hand, showing that their country would be utterly destroyed, and they would be carried away captives by the Babylonians. Yet for the comfort of the faithful he prophesied of God's vengeance against their enemies, such as the Philistines, Moabites, Assyrians, and others, to assure them that God had a continual care over them. And as the wicked would be punished for their sins and transgressions, so he exhorts the godly to patience, and to trust to find mercy by reason of the free promise of God made to Abraham: and therefore quietly to wait until God shows them the effect of that grace, by which in the end they should be gathered to him, and counted as his people and children.

Book Introduction

The Book of Zephaniah

This prophet, a contemporary of Jeremiah, exercised his ministry during the reign of Josiah. It was a time of revival (2Ki. 22), but the captivity was impending, nevertheless, and Zephaniah points out the moral state which, despite the superficial revival under Josiah (Jer 2:11-13), made it inevitable.

Zephaniah is in four parts:

I. The coming invasion of Nebuchadnezzar a figure of the day of the Lord, 1.1-2.3.

II. Predictions of judgment on certain peoples, 2.4-15.

III. The moral state of Israel for which the captivity was to come, 3.1-7.

IV. The judgment of the nations followed by kingdom blessing under Messiah, 3.8-20.Zephaniah 1:1 Parallel Commentaries
