Zephaniah 2:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible

A Call to Repentance

1 Gather yourselves together; gather together, undesirablea nation, 2 before the decree takes effect and the day passes like chaff, before the burning of the Lord's anger overtakes you, before the day of the Lord's anger overtakes you. 3 Seek the Lord, all you humble of the earth, who carry out what He commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be concealed on the day of the Lord's anger.

Judgment against the Nations

4 For Gaza will be abandoned, and Ashkelon will become a ruin. Ashdod will be driven out at noon, and Ekron will be uprooted. 5 Woe, inhabitants of the seacoast, nation of the Cherethites!b The word of the Lord is against you, Canaan, land of the Philistines: I will destroy you until there is no one left. 6 The seacoast will become pasturelands with caves for shepherds and folds for sheep.
