"Behold, at that time I will deal with all them that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven away; and I will make them a praise and a name, whose shame hath been in all the earth. At that time will I bring you in, and at that time will I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I bring again your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord." Zephaniah 3:19, 20, R.V. "Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; Be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, He hath cast out thine enemy: The King of Israel, even the Lord, Is in the midst of thee: Thou shalt not see evil any more. "In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: And to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee Is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing." Verses 14-17.

"Saml jer, saml jer, I folk, som ej kender skam, før I endnu er blevet som flyvende avner, før Herrens glødende harme kommer over eder, før Herrens vredes dag kommer over eder. Søg Herren, alle I ydmyge i landet, som holder hans bud, søg retfærd, søg ydmyghed! Måske kan I skjule jer på Herrens vredes dag." Zef. 2,1-3.
