1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H834 which H1961 came H6846 to Zephaniah H1121 the son H3569 of Cushi, H1121 the son H1436 of Gedaliah, H1121 the son H568 of Amariah, H1121 the son H2396 of Hizkiah, H3117 in the days H2977 of Josiah H1121 the son H526 of Amon, H4428 king H3063 of Judah.
2 H5486 I will utterly consume H3605 all H5921 things from off H6440 H127 the land, H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
3 H5486 I will consume H120 man H929 and beast; H5486 I will consume H5775 the fowls H8064 of the heaven, H1709 and the fishes H3220 of the sea, H4384 and the stumbling blocks H7563 with the wicked: H3772 and I will cut H5921 off H6440 H120 man H5921 from off H6440 H127 the land, H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
4 H5186 I will also stretch H3027 out my hand H3063 on Judah, H3605 and on all H3427 the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem; H3772 and I will cut H7605 off the remnant H1168 of Baal H2088 from this H4725 place, H8034 and the name H3649 of the Chemarims H3548 with the priests;
5 H7812 And them that worship H6635 the host H8064 of heaven H1406 on the housetops; H7812 and them that worship H7650 and that swear H3068 by the LORD, H7650 and that swear H4445 by Malcham;
6 H5472 And them that are turned H5253 back H3068 from the LORD; H1245 and those that have not sought H3068 the LORD, H3808 nor H1875 inquired for him.
7 H2013 Hold your peace H6440 at the presence H136 of the Lord H3069 GOD: H3117 for the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is at hand: H3068 for the LORD H3559 has prepared H2077 a sacrifice, H6942 he has bid H7121 his guests.
8 H1961 And it shall come H3117 to pass in the day H3068 of the LORD’s H2077 sacrifice, H6485 that I will punish H8269 the princes, H4428 and the king’s H1121 children, H3605 and all H3847 such as are clothed H5237 with strange H4403 apparel.
9 H1931 In the same H3117 day H6485 also will I punish H3605 all H1801 those that leap H5921 on H4670 the threshold, H4390 which fill H113 their masters’ H1004 houses H2555 with violence H4820 and deceit.
10 H1961 And it shall come H3117 to pass in that day, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H6963 that there shall be the noise H6818 of a cry H1709 from the fish H8179 gate, H3213 and an howling H4932 from the second, H1419 and a great H7667 crashing H1389 from the hills.
11 H3213 Howl, H3427 you inhabitants H4389 of Maktesh, H3605 for all H3667 the merchant H5971 people H1820 are cut H3605 down; all H5187 they that bear H3701 silver H3772 are cut off.
12 H1961 And it shall come H6256 to pass at that time, H2664 that I will search H3389 Jerusalem H5216 with candles, H6485 and punish H582 the men H7087 that are settled H5921 on H8105 their lees: H559 that say H3824 in their heart, H3068 The LORD H3190 will not do good, H3808 neither H7451 will he do evil.
13 H2428 Therefore their goods H1961 shall become H4933 a booty, H1004 and their houses H8047 a desolation: H1129 they shall also build H1004 houses, H3427 but not inhabit H5193 them; and they shall plant H3754 vineyards, H8354 but not drink H3196 the wine thereof.
14 H1419 The great H3117 day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is near, H7138 it is near, H4116 and hastens H3966 greatly, H6963 even the voice H3117 of the day H3068 of the LORD: H1368 the mighty H6873 man shall cry H8033 there H4751 bitterly.
15 H3117 That day H3117 is a day H5678 of wrath, H3117 a day H6869 of trouble H4691 and distress, H3117 a day H7722 of devastation H4875 and desolation, H3117 a day H2822 of darkness H653 and gloominess, H3117 a day H6051 of clouds H6205 and thick darkness,
16 H3117 A day H7782 of the trumpet H8643 and alarm H5921 against H1219 the fenced H5892 cities, H5921 and against H1364 the high H6438 towers.
17 H6887 And I will bring distress H120 on men, H1980 that they shall walk H5787 like blind H3588 men, because H2398 they have sinned H3068 against the LORD: H1818 and their blood H8210 shall be poured H6083 out as dust, H3894 and their flesh H1561 as the dung.
18 H3808 Neither H3701 their silver H1571 nor H2091 their gold H3201 shall be able H5337 to deliver H3117 them in the day H3068 of the LORD’s H5678 wrath; H3605 but the whole H776 land H398 shall be devoured H784 by the fire H7068 of his jealousy: H6213 for he shall make H926 even a speedy H3617 riddance H3605 of all H3427 them that dwell H776 in the land.
