Zephaniah 3

RHE 1 Woe to the provoking and redeemed city, the dove. NIV 1 Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! RHE 2 She hath not hearkened to the voice, neither hath she received discipline: she hath not trusted in the Lord, she drew not 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. RHE 3 Her princes are in the midst of her as roaring lions: her judges are evening wolves, they left nothing for the morning. NIV 3 Her officials within her are roaring lions; her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the morning. RHE 4 Her prophets are senseless, men without faith: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have acted unjustly against the law. NIV 4 Her prophets are unprincipled; they are treacherous people. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. RHE 5 The just Lord is in the midst thereof, he will not do iniquity: in the morning, in the morning he will bring his judgment to light, and it shall not be hid: but the wicked man hath not known 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. RHE 6 I have destroyed the nations, and their towers are beaten down: I have made their ways desert, so that there is none that passeth by: their cities are desolate, there is not a man remaining, nor any 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. RHE 7 I said: Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive correction: and her dwelling shall not perish, for all things wherein I have visited her: but they rose early, and corrupted all their thoughts. 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. RHE 8 Wherefore expect me, saith the Lord, in the day of my resurrection that is to come, for my judgment is to assemble the Gentiles, and to gather the kingdoms: and to pour upon them my indignation, all my fierce anger: for with the fire of my jealousy shall all the earth be devoured. 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. RHE 9 Because then I will restore to the people a chosen lip, that all may call upon the name of the Lord, and may serve him with one shoulder. 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. RHE 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, shall my suppliants, the children of my dispersed people, bring me an offering. NIV 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, my scattered people, will bring me offerings. RHE 11 In that day thou shalt not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me for then I will take away out of the midst of thee thy proud boasters, and thou shalt no more be lifted up because of 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. RHE 12 And I will leave in the midst of thee a poor and needy people: and they shall hope 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. RHE 13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed, and shall lie down, and there shall be none to 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.” RHE 14 Give praise, O daughter of Sion: shout, 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! RHE 15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgment, he hath turned away thy enemies: the king of Israel, the Lord, is in the midst of thee, thou shalt fear evil 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. RHE 16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Fear not: to Sion: Let not thy hands be weakened. NIV 16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, Zion; do not let your hands hang limp. RHE 17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, he will save: he will rejoice over thee with gladness, he will be silent in his love, he will be joyful over thee in praise. 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.” RHE 18 The triflers that were departed from the law, I will gather together, because they were of thee: that thou mayest no more suffer reproach for them. 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. RHE 19 Behold I will cut off all that have afflicted thee at that time: and I will save her that halteth, and will gather her that was cast out: and I will get them praise, and a name, in all the land where they had been put to confusion. 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. RHE 20 At that time, when I will bring you: and at the time that I will gather you: for I will give you a name, and praise among all the people of the earth, when I shall have brought back your captivity 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..
