Zephaniah Chapter 3

Zephaniah 3:2

zep 3:2


(See Scofield) - (Psa 2:12).

Zephaniah 3:7

zep 3:7


(See Scofield) - (Psa 19:9).

Zephaniah 3:9

zep 3:9

then will I turn

In Zephaniah the conversion of "the peoples" is stated out of the usual prophetic order, in which the blessing of Israel and the setting up of the kingdom precedes the conversion of the Gentiles.

(See Scofield) - (Zac 12:1).

(See Scofield) - (Zac 12:8).

But the passage gives clear testimony as to when the conversion of the nations will occur. It is after the smiting of the nations.

Compare (Isa 11:9) with context; (Dan 2:34); (Dan 2:35); (Psa 2:5-8); (Act 15:15-17); (Rev 19:19-20); (Rev 19:6).

Zephaniah 3:12

zep 3:12


(See Scofield) - (Psa 2:12).

Zephaniah 3:13

zep 3:13


(See Scofield) - (Jer 15:21).

Zephaniah 3:15

zep 3:15

the midst of thee

That this, and all like passages in the Prophets (see "Kingdom (Old Testament)," (Gen 1:26); (Zac 12:8) cannot refer to anything which occurred at the first coming of Christ is clear from the context. The precise reverse was true.

(See Scofield) - (Isa 11:1).
