Zephaniah, Day 2 Readings

The Punishment of Nations  

Today's reading again promises that God will punish all of the nations who have worked against God's will and against God's purposes.  This is also true for the unfaithful people among Judah -- they will not escape God's destructive wrath.  However, those who are faithful may be protected from the worst.  And a remnant of the faithful will be given the riches and lands of the defeated nations.

Read Zephaniah 2:1-15  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
