Zephaniah 1:18 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Their silver nor their gold - In which they trusted, and from which they expected happiness; these shall not profit them in this awful day. And God will bring this about speedily; and a speedy riddance - a universal desolation, shall in a short time take place in every part of the land.
