Zephaniah 1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Great Day of the Lord
1 The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
The Great Day of the Lord
2 “I will [a]utterly consume everything
4 “I will stretch out My hand against Judah,
7 Be silent in the presence of the Lord God;
8 “And it shall be,
10 “And there shall be on that day,” says the Lord,
12 “And it shall come to pass at that time
14 The great day of the Lord is near;
17 “I will bring distress upon men,
18 Neither their silver nor their gold
A Call to Repentance
2 Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together,
Judgment on Nations
4 For Gaza shall be forsaken,
6 The seacoast shall be pastures,
8 “I have heard the reproach of Moab,
10 This they shall have for their pride,
12 “You Ethiopians also,
13 And He will stretch out His hand against the north,
The Wickedness of Jerusalem
3 Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted,
3 Her princes in her midst are roaring lions;
6 “I have cut off nations,
A Faithful Remnant
8 “Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord,
9 “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure [s]language,
Joy in God’s Faithfulness
14 Sing, O daughter of Zion!
16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
18 “I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly,
Revelation 10 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Mighty Angel with the Little Book
10 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. 2 He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 Now when the seven thunders [a]uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying [b]to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.”
5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his [c]hand to heaven 6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.
John Eats the Little Book
8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”
9 So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.”
And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”
10 Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter. 11 And [d]he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.”
