The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
“I will utterly consume everything from the face of the land,”
Says the Lord;
“I will consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens, the fish of the sea, and the stumbling blocks along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the land,”
Says the Lord.
