Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary on the Bible
Zephaniah

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3

Book Overview - Zephaniah

by Matthew Henry

OF THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET

Z E P H A N I A H.


THIS prophet is placed last, as he was last in time, of all the minor prophets before the captivity, and not long before Jeremiah, who lived at the time of the captivity. He foretels the general destruction of Judah and Jerusalem by the Chaldeans, and sets their sins in order before them, which had provoked God to bring their ruin upon them, calls them to repentance, threatens the neighbouring nations with the like destructions, and gives encouraging promises of their joyful return out of captivity in due time, which have a reference to the grace of the gospel. We have, in the Zephaniah 1:1, an account of the prophet and the date of his prophecy, which supersedes our enquiry concerning them here.
