Zephaniah 3:16 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not - For "perfect love casteth out fear" John 4:18; from where he saith, "Fear not, little flock; it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" Luke 12:32. Who then and what should the Church or the faithful soul fear, since "mightier is He that is in her, than he that is in the world? And to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack," through faint-heartedness (see Hebrews 12:12), but work with all thy might; be ready to do or bear anything; since Christ worketh with, in, by thee, and "in due time we shall reap, if we faint not" Galatians 6:9.
