Zephaniah 2
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Be gathered and bind yourselves, people without discipline!

2Before you will be as chaff that passes away and before the heat of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH will come upon you, and before the day of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH will come upon you

3Look for LORD JEHOVAH, all of you meek ones of the Earth, and do judgment and seek righteousness and meekness; doubtless you shall find refuge in the day of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH!

4Because Aza will be abandoned, and Ashqelon will be for destruction; at noonday they shall take Ashdod and Aqron shall be uprooted

5Woe to dwellers in the coast of the sea and to the people of Crete! The word of LORD JEHOVAH is for you Canaan, and the land of the Philistines, and I shall destroy you from the habitation

6And the coast of the sea will be pastures, and Crete a place of pasture for folds of sheep

7And the coast of the sea will be for the rest of the house of Yehuda, and in the same they shall feed, and in houses of Ashqelon in the evening they shall feed, because LORD JEHOVAH their God shall visit them and he shall turn back their captivity

8I have heard the insult of Moab and the blasphemy of the children of Amon who insulted my people, and they have magnified themselves against their border

9Because of these things, I live, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, the God of Israel, that Moab will be like Sadom and the children of Amon like Amora, whose plantation was destroyed, and I shall destroy their sea weed and it shall be desolation to eternity; the remnant of my people shall plunder them and that which is left of my people shall inherit them

10This will happen to them for the sake of their pride because they have insulted and they have magnified themselves against the people of LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts against Israel 11LORD JEHOVAH has revealed to them that he shall destroy all of the Kings of the Earth and they shall worship him, each man from his place, all of the islands of the seas

12Also you Kushites are killed by the sword

13And he shall raise his hand against the North and he shall destroy the Assyrian and he shall make Nineva destruction and a desolation as a wilderness

14And the flocks shall feed within her and all the animals of the nations, also the pelicans and the owls in their houses will spend the night, and the beasts shall roar within her, and the sword is inside her gates because her stock is uprooted

15This is the fortified city that had dwelt in quietness and was saying in her heart: ”I am God, and there is none other like me!” How she has come to destruction and a place of herding for beasts! Everyone whoever will pass by it shall be shocked and shall whistle and shall shake his hand and shall say:
