Zephaniah: Intolerance

  1. God will "cut off" all those who "have not sought the Lord" or who worship another god. 1:4-6
  2. God will punish the princes, the king's children, the merchant people, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel, leap on the threshold, or bear silver. 1:8-11
  3. God doesn't have good night-vision, so he needs candles when he comes to rob people of their houses, goods, and wine. 1:12-13
  4. God will "bring distress upon men" so that they "walk like blind men." He will pour out their blood like dust and "their flesh as dung." 1:17-18
  5. God will kill all the inhabitants of the sea coast. 2:5
  6. God will destroy Moab and Ammon just like he did to Sodom and Gomorrah. 2:9

  8. God will kill the Ethiopians with his own sword. 2:12
