Zephaniah, the minor prophet, delivers some pretty harsh words to the children of Israel. He says in v. 2 -
“She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the Lord, She has not drawn near to her God.” (Zephaniah 3:2, NKJV)
This verse will be the biggest topic of this particular lesson. These people weren't marked as hateful, envious, unruly, or even terrible people. They were the children of Israel!
The woes placed unto them are much like the passage in Nahum 3:1-7 as well when Nahum calls Nineveh the "city of blood".
This lesson will be part of a 3 part lesson on "Stop, Look, and Listen". This is the "Stop!" Stay tuned for the next two in a few weeks.
