西番雅書 1

1猶大王亞們的兒子約西亞執政期間,耶和華對希西迦的玄孫、亞瑪利亞的曾孫、基大利的孫子、古示的兒子西番雅說:

耶和華審判的日子

「我必毀滅地上的一切。
這是耶和華說的。
我必毀滅人類、獸類、
天上的鳥和海裡的魚。
我必使惡人倒斃,
我必剷除地上的人類。
這是耶和華說的。

「我必伸手攻擊猶大,
以及所有住在耶路撒冷的人,
剷除巴力的餘跡及拜偶像之祭司的名號。
我必剷除那些在屋頂祭拜天上萬象的人,
剷除敬拜我、憑我起誓又憑米勒公起誓的人,
剷除離棄我、不尋求我、不求問我的人。」

要在主耶和華面前肅靜,
因為耶和華的日子近了。
耶和華已準備好祭物,
潔淨了祂邀請的人。
耶和華說:「在我獻祭的日子,
我必懲罰首領和王子,
以及所有穿外族服裝的人。
到那日,我必懲罰所有跳過門檻[a]
使主人的家充滿暴力和欺詐的人。
10 到那日,魚門必傳出哭喊聲,
新區必響起哀號聲,
山陵必發出崩裂的巨響。
這是耶和華說的。
11 市場區的居民啊,哀哭吧!
因為所有的商人必滅亡,
所有做買賣的必被剷除。
12 那時,我必提著燈巡查耶路撒冷,
懲罰那些安於罪中的人。
他們心想,『耶和華不賜福也不降禍。』
13 他們的財物必遭搶掠,
家園必淪為廢墟。
他們建造房屋,卻不能住在裡面;
栽種葡萄園,卻喝不到葡萄酒。

14 「耶和華的大日子近了,
近了,很快就到了。
那將是痛苦的日子,
勇士也必淒聲哀號。
15 那是降烈怒的日子,
是困苦艱難的日子,
是摧殘毀壞的日子,
是黑暗幽冥的日子,
是陰霾密佈的日子,
16 是吹號呐喊、
攻打堅城高壘的日子。

17 「我要使人們災難臨頭,
以致他們行路像瞎子,
因為他們得罪了我。
他們的血必被倒出,如同灰塵;
他們的屍體必被丟棄,如同糞便。
18 在耶和華發怒的日子,
他們的金銀救不了他們。
祂的怒火必吞噬大地,
祂必驟然毀滅一切世人。」

King James Version

Zephaniah 1

1The word of the Lord which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham;

And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.

13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.

14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
