Zephaniah 3

NRSA 1 Ah, soiled, defiled, oppressing city! NIV 1 Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! NRSA 2 It has listened to no voice; it has accepted no correction. It has not trusted in the Lord; it has not drawn near to its 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. NRSA 3 The officials within it are roaring lions; its judges are evening wolves that leave nothing until the morning. NIV 3 Her officials within her are roaring lions; her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the morning. NRSA 4 Its prophets are reckless, faithless persons; its priests have profaned what is sacred, they have done violence to the law. NIV 4 Her prophets are unprincipled; they are treacherous people. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. NRSA 5 The Lord within it is righteous; he does no wrong. Every morning he renders his judgment, each dawn without fail; but the unjust knows 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. NRSA 6 I have cut off nations; their battlements are in ruins; I have laid waste their streets so that no one walks in them; their cities have been made desolate, without people, without inhabitants. 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. NRSA 7 I said, "Surely the city will fear me, it will accept correction; it will not lose sight of all that I have brought upon it." But they were the more eager to make all their deeds corrupt. 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. NRSA 8 Therefore wait for me, says the Lord, for the day when I arise as a witness. For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them my indignation, all the heat of my anger; for in the fire of my passion all the earth shall be consumed. 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. NRSA 9 At that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call on the name of the Lord and serve him with one accord. 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. NRSA 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, my scattered ones, shall bring my offering. NIV 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, my scattered people, will bring me offerings. NRSA 11 On that day you shall not be put to shame because of all the deeds by which you have rebelled against me; for then I will remove from your midst your proudly exultant ones, and you shall no longer be haughty in my holy mountain. 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. NRSA 12 For I will leave in the midst of you a people humble and lowly. They shall seek refuge 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. NRSA 13 the remnant of Israel; they shall do no wrong and utter no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouths. Then they will pasture and lie down, and no one shall make them 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.” NRSA 14 Sing aloud, O daughter Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter Jerusalem! NIV 14 Sing, Daughter Zion; shout aloud, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, Daughter Jerusalem! NRSA 15 The Lord has taken away the judgments against you, he has turned away your enemies. The king of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; you shall fear disaster no 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. NRSA 16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands grow weak. NIV 16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, Zion; do not let your hands hang limp. NRSA 17 The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud 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.” NRSA 18 as on a day of festival. I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach for it. 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. NRSA 19 I will deal with all your oppressors at that time. And I will save the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth. 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. NRSA 20 At that time I will bring you home, at the time when I gather you; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says 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..
