The Wickedness of Jerusalem | Zephaniah 3


Ah, soiled, defiled, oppressing city! It has listened to no voice; it has accepted no correction. It has not trusted in the LORD.

The Wickedness of Jerusalem


1 Ah, soiled, defiled,

oppressing city!

2 It has listened to no voice;

it has accepted no correction.

It has not trusted in the LORD;

it has not drawn near to its God.

3 The officials within it

are roaring lions;

its judges are evening wolves

that leave nothing until the morning.

4 Its prophets are reckless,

faithless persons;

its priests have profaned what is sacred,

they have done violence to the law.

5 The LORD within it is righteous;

he does no wrong.

Every morning he renders his judgment,

each dawn without fail;

but the unjust knows no shame.

6 I have cut off nations;

their battlements are in ruins;

I have laid waste their streets

so that no one walks in them;

their cities have been made desolate,

without people, without inhabitants.

7 I said, “Surely the city will fear me,

it will accept correction;

it will not lose sight

of all that I have brought upon it.”

But they were the more eager

to make all their deeds corrupt.



  1. New Revised Standard Version
