西番雅书 1

1犹大王亚们的儿子约西亚执政期间,耶和华对希西迦的玄孙、亚玛利亚的曾孙、基大利的孙子、古示的儿子西番雅说:

耶和华审判的日子

“我必毁灭地上的一切。
这是耶和华说的。
我必毁灭人类、兽类、
天上的鸟和海里的鱼。
我必使恶人倒毙,
我必铲除地上的人类。
这是耶和华说的。

“我必伸手攻击犹大,
以及所有住在耶路撒冷的人,
铲除巴力的余迹及拜偶像之祭司的名号。
我必铲除那些在屋顶祭拜天上万象的人,
铲除敬拜我、凭我起誓又凭米勒公起誓的人,
铲除离弃我、不寻求我、不求问我的人。”

要在主耶和华面前肃静,
因为耶和华的日子近了。
耶和华已准备好祭物,
洁净了祂邀请的人。
耶和华说:“在我献祭的日子,
我必惩罚首领和王子,
以及所有穿外族服装的人。
到那日,我必惩罚所有跳过门槛[a]
使主人的家充满暴力和欺诈的人。
10 到那日,鱼门必传出哭喊声,
新区必响起哀号声,
山陵必发出崩裂的巨响。
这是耶和华说的。
11 市场区的居民啊,哀哭吧!
因为所有的商人必灭亡,
所有做买卖的必被铲除。
12 那时,我必提着灯巡查耶路撒冷,
惩罚那些安于罪中的人。
他们心想,‘耶和华不赐福也不降祸。’
13 他们的财物必遭抢掠,
家园必沦为废墟。
他们建造房屋,却不能住在里面;
栽种葡萄园,却喝不到葡萄酒。

14 “耶和华的大日子近了,
近了,很快就到了。
那将是痛苦的日子,
勇士也必凄声哀号。
15 那是降烈怒的日子,
是困苦艰难的日子,
是摧残毁坏的日子,
是黑暗幽冥的日子,
是阴霾密布的日子,
16 是吹号呐喊、
攻打坚城高垒的日子。

17 “我要使人们灾难临头,
以致他们行路像瞎子,
因为他们得罪了我。
他们的血必被倒出,如同灰尘;
他们的尸体必被丢弃,如同粪便。
18 在耶和华发怒的日子,
他们的金银救不了他们。
祂的怒火必吞噬大地,
祂必骤然毁灭一切世人。”

Zephaniah 1

Day of Judgment on Judah

1The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah:

“I will completely remove all things
From the face of the [a]earth,” declares the Lord.
“I will remove man and beast;
I will remove the birds of the sky
And the fish of the sea,
And the [b]ruins along with the wicked;
And I will cut off man from the face of the [c]earth,” declares the Lord.
“So I will stretch out My hand against Judah
And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
And I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place,
And the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests.
“And those who bow down on the housetops to the host of heaven,
And those who bow down and swear to the Lord and yet swear by [d]Milcom,
And those who have turned back from following the Lord,
And those who have not sought the Lord or inquired of Him.”

[e]Be silent before the Lord [f]God!
For the day of the Lord is near,
For the Lord has prepared a sacrifice,
He has consecrated His guests.
“Then it will come about on the day of the Lord’s sacrifice
That I will punish the princes, the king’s sons
And all who clothe themselves with foreign garments.
“And I will punish on that day all who leap on the temple threshold,
Who fill the house of their [g]lord with violence and deceit.
10 “On that day,” declares the Lord,
“There will be the sound of a cry from the Fish Gate,
A wail from the [h]Second Quarter,
And a loud crash from the hills.
11 “Wail, O inhabitants of the [i]Mortar,
For all the [j]people of Canaan will be silenced;
All who weigh out silver will be cut off.
12 “It will come about at that time
That I will search Jerusalem with lamps,
And I will punish the men
Who are [k]stagnant in spirit,
Who say in their hearts,
‘The Lord will not do good or evil!’
13 “Moreover, their wealth will become plunder
And their houses desolate;
Yes, they will build houses but not inhabit them,
And plant vineyards but not drink their wine.”

14 Near is the great day of the Lord,
Near and coming very quickly;
Listen, the day of the Lord!
[l]In it the warrior cries out bitterly.
15 A day of wrath is that day,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of destruction and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloom,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of trumpet and battle cry
Against the fortified cities
And the high corner towers.
17 I will bring distress on men
So that they will walk like the blind,
Because they have sinned against the Lord;
And their blood will be poured out like dust
And their flesh like dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold
Will be able to deliver them
On the day of the Lord’s wrath;
And all the earth will be devoured
In the fire of His jealousy,
For He will make a complete end,
Indeed a terrifying one,
Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
