Zephaniah 1

1:1 The word of the LORD which came to 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.
1:2 I will utterly consume all [things] from off the land, saith
 the LORD.
1:3 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.
1:4 I will also stretch out my 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
1:5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the
 house-tops; and them that worship [and] that swear by the LORD,
 and that swear by Malcham;
1:6 And them that have turned back from the LORD; and [those]
 that have not sought the LORD, nor inquired for him.
1:7 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 invited his guests.
1:8 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 foreign apparel.
1:9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on
 the threshhold, who fill their masters' houses with violence
 and deceit.
1:10 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 a howling from the second, and a great crashing from the
1:11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant
 people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
1:12 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.
1:13 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 of them.
1:14 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.
1:15 That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and
 distress, a day of wasting and desolation, a day of darkness
 and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fortified
 cities, and against the high towers.
1:17 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
1:18 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 will make
 even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
