Bible: Zephaniah 2:1-3

The Prophet Warns the People

2:1 Bunch yourselves together like straw, 1  you undesirable 2  nation,

2:2 before God’s decree becomes reality 3  and the day of opportunity disappears like windblown chaff, 4 

before the Lord’s raging anger 5  overtakes 6  you –

before the day of the Lord’s angry judgment overtakes you!

2:3 Seek the Lord’s favor, 7  all you humble people 8  of the land who have obeyed his commands! 9 

Strive to do what is right! 10  Strive to be humble! 11 

Maybe you will be protected 12  on the day of the Lord’s angry judgment.
