Zephaniah 3:9-19 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
9 Because then I will {make the speech of the nations pure};a that all of them might call on the name of Yahweh, to serve him {in unison}.b 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers and the daughter of my scattered ones shall bring my offering. 11 On that day you shall not be humiliated on account of all your deeds [by] which you have rebelled against me. For then I shall remove from your midst those exulting in your pride, and you shall no longer be haughty in {my holy mountain}.c 12 And I will leave in your midst a people afflicted and poor, and they shall take refuge in the name of Yahweh. 13 The remnant of Israel shall not do wickedness; they shall not speak deception, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth. For they shall graze and lie down, and none shall frighten [them]." 14 Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion! Cry aloud, O Israel! Rejoice and be jubilant with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! 15 Yahweh has annulled your judgments; he has turned away your enemies. The king of Israel, Yahweh, [is] in your midst; you shall no longer fear misfortune. 16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, "Fear not, O Zion; your hands shall not hang limp. 17 Yahweh your God [is] in your midst; a mighty warrior who saves. He shall rejoice over you with joy; he renewsd you in his love; he will exult over you with singing. 18 I will gather those of you grieving on account of the feast; they were raising against her a reproach. 19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors; I will save the lame and gather the outcast. I will changee them from shame to glory and {renown}f throughout the whole world.
