Zephaniah 3

JUB 1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city! NIV 1 Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! JUB 2 She did not obey the voice; she did not receive correction; she did not trust in the LORD; she did not draw near to her God. NIV 2 She obeys no one, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD, she does not draw near to her God. JUB 3 Her princes within her <em>are</em> roaring lions; her judges <em>are</em> evening wolves; they do not leave a bone for tomorrow. NIV 3 Her officials within her are roaring lions; her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the morning. JUB 4 Her prophets <em>are</em> light <em>and</em> treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary; they have falsified the law. NIV 4 Her prophets are unprincipled; they are treacherous people. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. JUB 5 The just LORD <em>is</em> in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: each morning he shall bring his judgment to light; he never fails; but the unjust know no shame. NIV 5 The LORD within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail, yet the unrighteous know no shame. JUB 6 I have caused <em>the</em> Gentiles to be cut off: their castles are desolate; I made their streets waste until no one passes by; their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man <em>left</em>, there is no inhabitant. NIV 6 “I have destroyed nations; their strongholds are demolished. I have left their streets deserted, with no one passing through. Their cities are laid waste; they are deserted and empty. JUB 7 Saying, Surely <em>now</em> thou wilt fear me; thou wilt receive chastisement; so thy dwelling shall not be thrown down, all of which I visited upon her; but they rose early, <em>and</em> corrupted all their doings. NIV 7 Of Jerusalem I thought, ‘Surely you will fear me and accept correction!’ Then her place of refuge would not be destroyed, nor all my punishments come upon her. But they were still eager to act corruptly in all they did. JUB 8 Therefore wait for me, said the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey; for my judgment <em>is</em> to gather <em>the</em> Gentiles, that I may assemble the kingdoms to pour upon them my indignation, <em>even</em> all my fierce anger; for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. NIV 8 Therefore wait for me,” declares the LORD, “for the day I will stand up to testify.I have decided to assemble the nations, to gather the kingdoms and to pour out my wrath on them— all my fierce anger. The whole world will be consumed by the fire of my jealous anger. JUB 9 For then I will restore to the peoples the pure language that they may all call upon the name of the LORD to serve him with one consent. NIV 9 “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the LORDand serve him shoulder to shoulder. JUB 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, <em>even</em> the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring me an offering. NIV 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, my scattered people, will bring me offerings. JUB 11 In that day thou shalt not be ashamed for any of thy doings, in which thou hast rebelled against me, for then I will take away out of the midst of thee those that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no longer be haughty because of the mountain of my holiness. NIV 11 On that day you, Jerusalem, will not be put to shame for all the wrongs you have done to me, because I will remove from you your arrogant boasters. Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill. JUB 12 I will also leave in the midst of thee a poor and humble people, and they shall wait in the name of the LORD. NIV 12 But I will leave within you the meek and humble. The remnant of Israel will trust in the name of the LORD. JUB 13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth, for they shall be fed and lie down, and no one shall make <em>them</em> afraid. NIV 13 They will do no wrong; they will tell no lies. A deceitful tongue will not be found in their mouths. They will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid.” JUB 14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; <em>shout with</em> joy O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. NIV 14 Sing, Daughter Zion; shout aloud, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, Daughter Jerusalem! JUB 15 The LORD has taken away thy judgments; he has cast out thine enemy; the LORD is king of Israel in the midst of thee; thou shalt not see evil any more. NIV 15 The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm. JUB 16 In that time it shall be said to Jerusalem, Do not fear; <em>and to</em> Zion, Do not let thine hands be slack. NIV 16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, Zion; do not let your hands hang limp. JUB 17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save; he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love; he will joy over thee with singing. NIV 17 The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” JUB 18 I will gather <em>those that are</em> weary because of the <em>long</em> time, <em>who</em> are thine, <em>unto whom</em> her confusion <em>was</em> a burden. NIV 18 “I will remove from you all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festivals, which is a burden and reproach for you. JUB 19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee; and I will save her that is lame and gather her that was driven out; and I will make them a praise and of <em>good</em> reputation in every land where they have been put to shame. NIV 19 At that time I will deal with all who oppressed you. I will rescue the lame; I will gather the exiles. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they have suffered shame. JUB 20 At that time will I bring you <em>again</em>, even in the time that I gather you; for I will give you as fame and as praise among all peoples of the earth, when I shall return your captives before your eyes, saith the LORD. NIV 20 At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunesbefore your very eyes,” says the LORD..
