Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible - Old Testament

An exposition, with practical observations, of the Book of Zephaniah

 

Zephaniah Exposition: Index | Introduction to the book of Zephaniah | Zephaniah 1 | Zephaniah 2 | Zephaniah 3

Zephaniah full text: Zephaniah 1 | Zephaniah 2 | Zephaniah 3

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 first verse, an account of the prophet and the date of his prophecy, which supersedes our enquiry concerning them here.
