The Book of Zephaniah

View of Jerusalem

"Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city! [1] She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God. [2] Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow. [3] Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. "[4]

Zephaniah 3:1-6


Study written by Roger Christopherson, and offered with written permission. http://www.theseason.org/
The books of reference used for this study of the book of  Zephaniah were the Bible, King James Version, called "The Companion Bible", Publisher Kregel; Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, numbered to the Hebrew, Chaldee, and Greek, and English, coded to the Strong's Concordance numbers.

Other sources were also used besides these references, but they were the major source of the study. Of course without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there would be no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.


John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
