Book of Zephaniah

Written in Palestine about 679-648 B.C.  The book reveals the judgment of God upon both Jews and Gentiles for their many sins; and His goodness to the godly of both classes. The book opens with a message regarding immediate judgment upon Judah by Babylon, then depicts their judgment in the future day of the Lord (Zeph. 1:1-18). Zeph. 2 is devoted to immediate judgments of God upon Gentiles by Babylon-Philistia, Moab, Ammon, Ethiopia, and Assyria. The prophet then returns to the immediate judgment upon Judah by Babylon, and also makes predictions regarding Israel in the future day of the Lord, in the reign of the Messiah (Zeph. 3:1-20). The book makes it clear to Judah that unless they would consecrate to do the will of God judgment would surely come; and to encourage the godly of the nation regarding the fact that final and complete restoration under the Messiah would come.
