An exhortation to repentance.

Zephaniah 2:1 Examyne youre selues & serche O þu Nacyon þt hast no desire to þe lawe Zephaniah 2:2 or þe thing go forth þt God hath concluded, & or the tyme come wherin man shall passe awaye as the dust: or þe fearfull wrath of þe Lord come vpon you: Zephaniah 2:3 yee, or þe daye of þe Lordes sore displeasure come vpon you. Seke þe Lord all yee meke harted vpon earth, ye þt worcke after his iudgement: seke ryghteousnesse, seke lowlynesse: þt ye maye be defended in þe wrothful daye of the Lord:

The judgment of the Philistines,

Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shal be destroyed, and Ascalon shall be layed waste. They shall cast out Asdod at the noone daye, and Accaron shalbe pluckte vp by the rotes Zephaniah 2:5 Wo vnto you þt dwell vpon the see coost ye murtherous people: the worde of þe Lord shal come vpon you. O Canaan thou lande of the Philistines, I will destroye þe, so that there shall no man dwell in the eny more, Zephaniah 2:6 & as for þe see coast, it shall be heardemens cotages & shepe foldes: Zephaniah 2:7 yee, it shalbe a porcion for soch as remayne of the house of Iuda, to fede ther vpon. In þe houses of Ascalon shall they rest towarde nyght: for the Lord their God shal vyset them, & turne awaye their captiuite.

of Moab and Ammon,

Zephaniah 2:8 I haue herde þe despite of Moab, & the blasphemyes of þe children of Ammon how they haue shamefully intreated my people, & magnified them selues within the borders of their lande. Zephaniah 2:9 Therfore, as truly as I lyue (sayeth the Lord of hostes the God of Israel) Moab shalbe as Sodome & Ammon as Gomorra: euen drie thorne hedges, salt pittes & a perpetuall wyldernes. The resydue of my folcke shal spoyle them, the remnaunt of my people shal haue them in possession. Zephaniah 2:10 This shall happen vnto them for their pryde, because they haue dealte so shamefully with þe Lorde of hostes people, & magnified them selues aboue them. Zephaniah 2:11 The Lord shall be grymme vpon them, & destroye all the goddes in þe lande. And all the Iles of the Heathen shall worshippe him, euery man in his place.

of Ethiopia and Assyria.

Zephaniah 2:12 Ye Moryans also shall perish wt my swerde: Zephaniah 2:13 yee, he shall stretch out his hande ouer the north, and destroye Assur. As for Niniue, he shall make it desolate, drye & waste. Zephaniah 2:14 The flockes & all the beastes of þe people shall lye in þe middest of it, pellicanes & storckes shal abyde in the vpper postes of it, foules shall synge in the wyndowes, & rauens shall sytt vpon þe balckes, for þe boordes of Cedre shalbe ryuen downe. Zephaniah 2:15 This is the proude and carelesse citye, that sayde in her herte. I am, and there is els none. O how is she made so waste, that the beastes lye therin? Who so goeth by, mocketh her, and poynteth at her with his fynger.
