Zephaniah 1:8 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:8 The princes - The great ones, who dreamed of shifting better than others, but fell with the first, 2Kings 25:19 - 21. Children - Sons and grand - children, Josiah: Jehoahaz died a captive in Egypt, 2Kings 23:34, Jehoakim died in Babylon, and was buried with the burial of an ass, Jer 22:18,19, Jeconiah died a captive: and Zedekiah and his children, fared still worse. Strange apparel - The garb of foreigners, imitated by the wanton Jews.
For the LORD has rejected his people, the descendants of Jacob, because they have filled their land with practices from the East and with sorcerers, as the Philistines do. They have made alliances with pagans.
In that day the LORD will punish the gods in the heavens and the proud rulers of the nations on earth.
They scoff at kings and princes and scorn all their fortresses. They simply pile ramps of earth against their walls and capture them!
