Zephaniah 1:6 Parallel
CommentaryZephaniah 1:6 Parallel Commentaries
Oh, what a sinful nation they are--loaded down with a burden of guilt. They are evil people, corrupt children who have rejected the LORD. They have despised the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.
For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to acknowledge you--on the peoples that do not call upon your name. For they have devoured your people Israel; they have devoured and consumed them, making the land a desolate wilderness.
"If righteous people turn away from their righteous behavior and ignore the obstacles I put in their way, they will die. And if you do not warn them, they will die in their sins. None of their righteous acts will be remembered, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths.
Their arrogance testifies against them, yet they don't return to the LORD their God or even try to find him.
