1 H1697 The word H3068 of the Lord H6846 which came unto Zephaniah H1121 the son H3570 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.
3 H5486 I will consume H120 man H929 and animal; H5486 I will consume H5775 the birds H8064 of the heaven, H1709 and the fish H3220 of the sea, H4384 and the stumblingblocks H7563 with the wicked; H3772 and I will cut off H120 man H6440 from off H127 the land, H5002 says H3068 the Lord.
4 H5186 I will also stretch out H3027 my hand H3063 upon Judah, H3427 and upon all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem; H3772 and I will cut off H7605 the remnant H1168 of Baal H4725 from this place, H8034 and the name H3649 of the Chemarims H3548 with the priests;
5 H7812 And them that worship H6635 the army H8064 of heaven H1406 upon the housetops; H7812 and them that worship H7650 and that swear H3068 by the Lord, H7650 and that swear H4428 by Malcham;
6 H5472 And them that are turned back H310 from H3068 the Lord; H1245 and those that have not sought H3068 the Lord, H1875 nor 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 H3117 And it shall come 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 sons, H3847 and all such as are clothed H5237 with strange H4403 apparel.
9 H3117 In the same day H6485 also will I punish H1801 all those that leap H4670 on the threshold, H4390 which fill H113 their masters' H1004 houses H2555 with violence H4820 and deceit.
10 H3117 And it shall come to pass in that day, H5002 says H3068 the Lord, H6963 that there shall be the noise H6818 of a cry H1709 from the fish H8179 gate, H3215 and a howling H4932 from the second, H1419 and a great H7667 crashing H1389 from the hills.
11 H3213 Howl, H3427 you inhabitants H4389 of Maktesh, H3667 for all the merchant H5971 people H1820 are cut down; H5187 all they that bear H3701 silver H3772 are cut off.
12 H6256 And it shall come 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 H8105 on their lees: H559 that say H3824 in their heart, H3068 The Lord H3190 will not do good, H7489 neither will he do evil.
13 H2428 Therefore their goods H4933 shall become a booty, H1004 and their houses H8077 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 there.
14 H1419 The great H3117 day H3068 of the Lord H7138 is near, H7138 it is near, H4118 and hastens H3966 greatly, H6963 even the voice H3117 of the day H3068 of the Lord: H1368 the mighty man H6873 shall cry H4751 there 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 wasteness 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 H1219 against the fenced H5892 cities, H1364 and against the high H6438 towers.
17 H6887 And I will bring distress H120 upon men, H1980 that they shall walk H5787 like blind men, H2398 because they have sinned H3068 against the Lord: H1818 and their blood H8210 shall be poured out H6083 as dust, H3894 and their flesh H1561 as the dung.
18 H3701 Neither their silver H2091 nor their gold H3201 shall be able H5337 to deliver H3117 them in the day H3068 of the Lord's H5678 wrath; H776 but the whole land H398 shall be devoured H784 by the fire H7068 of his jealousy: H6213 for he shall make H926 even a speedy H3617 riddance H3427 of all them that live H776 in the land.
