Zephaniah 1:14 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:14 The voice if the day - The day which will come with a great noise.
For the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to survive?"
and down at the earth, but wherever they look, there will be trouble and anguish and dark despair. They will be thrown out into the darkness.
In all history there has never been such a time of terror. It will be a time of trouble for my people Israel. Yet in the end they will be saved!
O people of Israel, the day of your destruction is dawning. The time has come; the day of trouble is near. Shouts of anguish will be heard on the mountains, not shouts of joy.
Yes, the time has come; the day is here! Buyers should not rejoice over bargains, nor sellers grieve over losses, for all of them will fall under my terrible anger.
The survivors who escape to the mountains will moan like doves, weeping for their sins.
Tell the people, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.' Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: 'The time has come for every prophecy to be fulfilled!'
