1 H1697 The word H3068 of Yahweh H6846 which came to Zephaniah, H1121 the son H3570 of Cushi, H1121 the son H1436 of Gedaliah, H1121 the son H568 of Amariah, H1121 the son H2396 of Hezekiah, H3117 in the days H2977 of Josiah, H1121 the son H526 of Amon, H4428 king H3063 of Judah.
2 H622 I will utterly H5486 sweep away H6440 everything off of the surface of the earth, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh.
3 H5486 I will sweep away H120 man H929 and animal. H5486 I will sweep away H5775 the birds H8064 of the sky, H1709 the fish H3220 of the sea, H4384 and the heaps H7563 of rubble with the wicked. H3772 I will cut off H120 man H6440 from H127 the surface of the earth, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh.
4 H5186 I will stretch out H3027 my hand H3063 against Judah, H3427 and against all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem. H3772 I will cut off H7605 the remnant H1168 of Baal H4725 from this place: H8034 the name H3649 of the idolatrous H3548 and pagan priests,
5 H7812 those who worship H6635 the army H8064 of the sky H1406 on the housetops, H7812 those who worship H7650 and swear H3068 by Yahweh H7650 and also swear H4428 by Malcam,
6 H5472 those who have turned back H310 from H3068 following Yahweh, H1245 and those who haven't sought H3068 Yahweh H1875 nor inquired after him.
7 H2013 Be silent H6440 at the presence H136 of the Lord H3068 Yahweh, H3117 for the day H3068 of Yahweh H7138 is at hand. H3068 For Yahweh H3559 has prepared H2077 a sacrifice. H6942 He has consecrated H7121 his guests.
8 H3117 It will happen in the day H3068 of Yahweh's H2077 sacrifice, H6485 that I will punish H8269 the princes, H4428 the king's H1121 sons, H3847 and all those who are clothed H5237 with foreign H4403 clothing.
9 H3117 In that day, H6485 I will punish H1801 all those who leap H4670 over the threshold, H4390 who fill H113 their master's H1004 house H2555 with violence H4820 and deceit.
10 H3117 In that day, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, H6963 there will be the noise H6818 of a cry H1709 from the fish H8179 gate, H3215 a wailing H4932 from the second H1419 quarter, and a great H7667 crashing H1389 from the hills.
11 H3213 Wail, H3427 you inhabitants H4389 of Maktesh, H5971 for all the people H3667 of Canaan H1820 are undone! H5187 All those who were loaded H3701 with silver H3772 are cut off.
12 H6256 It will happen at that time, H2664 that I will search H3389 Jerusalem H5216 with lamps, H6485 and I will punish H582 the men H7087 who are settled H8105 on their dregs, H559 who say H3824 in their heart, H3068 "Yahweh H3190 will not do good, H7489 neither will he do evil."
13 H2428 Their wealth H4933 will become a spoil, H1004 and their houses H8077 a desolation. H1129 Yes, they will build H1004 houses, H3427 but won't inhabit H5193 them. They will plant H3754 vineyards, H8354 but won't drink H3196 their wine.
14 H1419 The great H3117 day H3068 of Yahweh H7138 is near. H7138 It is near, H4118 and hurries H3966 greatly, H6963 the voice H3117 of the day H3068 of Yahweh. H1368 The mighty man H6873 cries H4751 there bitterly.
15 H3117 That day H3117 is a day H5678 of wrath, H3117 a day H4691 of distress H6869 and anguish, H3117 a day H6869 of trouble H4875 and ruin, H3117 a day H2822 of darkness H653 and gloom, H3117 a day H6051 of clouds H6205 and blackness,
16 H3117 a day H7782 of the trumpet H8643 and alarm, H1219 against the fortified H5892 cities, H1364 and against the high H6438 battlements.
17 H6887 I will bring distress H120 on men, H1980 that they will walk H5787 like blind men, H2398 because they have sinned H3068 against Yahweh, H1818 and their blood H8210 will be poured out H6083 like dust, H3894 and their flesh H1561 like dung.
18 H3701 Neither their silver H2091 nor their gold H3201 will be able H5337 to deliver H3117 them in the day H3068 of Yahweh's H5678 wrath, H776 but the whole land H398 will be devoured H784 by the fire H7068 of his jealousy; H6213 for he will make H926 an end, yes, a terrible H3617 end, H3427 of all those who dwell H776 in the land.
