Zephaniah 1‑3
(whom God hides)
Judgment on hypocritical Judah and all nations; but a remnant blessed. During the shallow (and temporary) revival under the godly young king Josiah, the prophet, points out the moral state of Judah and Jerusalem, the center of iniquity and hypocrisy, and declares that the captivity (as also the great and terrible Day of the Lord) is inevitable, but grace to the afflicted remnant who wait for Jehovah to deliver and delight in them.
B.C. 630.
