西番雅書-Zephaniah 第 3 章

Woe to the rebellious and defiled one, To the oppressing city!
She has not listened to the voice; She has not taken the correction. She has not trusted in Jehovah; She has not drawn near to her God.
Her princes in the midst of her Are roaring lions. Her judges are wolves of the evening; They have left nothing until the morning.
Her prophets are vainglorious; They are men of treachery. Her priests have defiled the sanctuary; They have done violence to the law.
Jehovah is righteous in the midst of her; He does no wrong; Morning by morning He brings His justice to light; He does not fail; but he who is wrong knows no shame.
I have cut off nations; Their battlements are desolated; I have made their streets a waste, So that no one passes through; Their cities are destroyed, So that there is no one, So that there is no inhabitant.
I said, Only fear Me; Take the correction; That her habitation might not be cut off, According to all that I have appointed concerning her. But they rose up early to corrupt All their deeds.
Therefore wait on Me, declares Jehovah, For the day when I rise up to the prey. For My decision is to assemble the nations, To gather kingdoms together, That I may pour out upon them My wrath, All My burning anger; For in the fire of My jealousy All the earth will be devoured.
For then I will change the language of the peoples Into a pure language That they may all call upon the name of Jehovah, To serve Him with one accord.
From beyond the rivers of Cush my suppliants, The daughter of My dispersed, will bring My meal offering.
In that day you will not be put to shame because of all your deeds, By which you have transgressed against Me; For then I will take away from your midst Those who exult in your majesty, And you will never again be haughty On My holy mountain.
And I will leave in the midst of you An afflicted and poor people, And they will take refuge in the name of Jehovah.
The remnant of Israel will not do wrong; And they will not speak lies, Nor will there be found in their mouth A deceitful tongue; For they will have pasture and lie down, And there will be no one to frighten them.
Give a ringing shout, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Jehovah has taken away your judgments; He has turned aside your enemy. The King of Israel, Jehovah, is in the midst of you; You will not see evil again.
In that day it will be said to Jerusalem, Fear not, O Zion; Let not your hands drop.
Jehovah your God in the midst of you Is a mighty One who saves; He will be jubilant over you with rejoicing; He will rest in His love; He will exult over you with a ringing shout.
I will gather those who mourn for the appointed assembly, Who were of you. The reproach was a burden upon them.
Indeed at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; And I will save that which is lame, And that which has been driven away I will gather. And I will make them a praise and a name In every land where their shame had been.
At that time I will bring you in, And at that time I will gather you; For I will cause you to be a name and a praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I turn again your captivity before your eyes, Says Jehovah.
