Zephaniah 2 - AMP

2 Therefore consider, before God's decree brings forth , before the time is gone like the drifting chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord comes upon you--yes, before the day of the wrath of the Lord comes upon you! 3 Seek the Lord , all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility . It may be you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger. 4 For Gaza shall be forsaken and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; the people of Ashdod shall be driven out at noonday and Ekron shall be uprooted. 5 Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, the nation of the Cherethites ! The word of the Lord is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines; I will destroy you until no inhabitant is left. 6 And the seacoast shall be pastures, with dwelling places and caves for shepherds and folds for flocks. 7 The This is one of the more than twenty-five details of Bible prophecy concerning the land of Palestine that has been literally fulfilled. Probability computers estimate that if a prophecy concerning a person, place, or event has twenty-five details, there is one chance in more than thirty-three million of its accidental fulfillment. And such prophecy must be (1) above the possibility of human collusion; (2) beyond the ability of human calculation; (3) proof against human coincidence; (4) above all possibility of human comprehension. What inconceivable omniscience was behind the writing of the Bible! Twenty-five details also concerning the betrayal, trial, death, and burial of our Lord were fulfilled, fulfilled within twenty-four hours! And the fulfillment of the most remarkable prophecies of all time is predicted in the Bible for the rapidly approaching future! See footnote on Ezek. 26:14 for information about a similar fulfillment of details of Bible prophecy with regard to Tyre.seacoast shall belong to the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall pasture their flocks upon it; in the houses of Ashkelon shall they of Judah lie down in the evening. For the Lord their God shall visit them and restore them from their captivity. 8 I have heard the taunts of Moab and the revilings of the Ammonites by which they have reproached My people, and magnified themselves and made boasts against their territory. 9 Therefore, as I live, says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Moab shall become like Sodom and the Ammonites like Gomorrah, a land possessed by nettles and wild vetches and salt pits, and a perpetual desolation. The remnant of My people shall make a prey of them and what is left of My nation shall possess them. 10 This shall they have for their pride, because they have taunted and boasted against the people of the Lord of hosts. 11 The Lord will be terrible to them, for He will make lean and famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship Him, every one from his place, even all the isles and coastlands of the nations. 12 You Ethiopians also, you shall be slain by My sword. 13 And will stretch out His hand against the north and destroy Assyria and will make Nineveh a desolation, dry as the desert. 14 Herds shall lie down in the midst of , all the beasts of the nations and of every kind; both the pelican and the hedgehog shall lodge on the upper part of her pillars; the voice shall sing in the windows; desolation and drought shall be on the thresholds, for her cedar paneling will He lay bare. 15 This is the joyous and exultant city that dwelt carelessly , that said in her heart, I am and there is none beside me. What a desolation she has become, a lair for beasts! Everyone who passes by her shall hiss and wave his hand .
