 About the Book 

Zephaniah 3:12“But I will leave among you A humble and lowly people, And they will take refuge in the name of the Lord.That God will have a remnant of holy, humble, serious people among them, that shall have the comfort of their relation to him andMoreZephaniah 3:12“But I will leave among you A humble and lowly people, And they will take refuge in the name of the Lord.That God will have a remnant of holy, humble, serious people among them, that shall have the comfort of their relation to him and interest in him. I will leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people.When the Chaldeans carried away the Jews into captivity they left of the poor of the land for vine dressers and husbandmen, a type and figure of God’s distinguished remnant, whom he sets apart for himself. They are afflicted and poor, low in the world- such God has chosen. The poor are evangelized, low in their own eyes, afflicted for sin, poor in spirit.They are God’s leaving, for it is a remnant according to the election of grace. I have reserved them to myself, says God, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. Those whom God designs for the glory of his name he enables to trust in his name- and the greater their affliction and poverty in the world are the more reason they see to trust in God, having nothing else to trust to.Cross Reference: Isaiah 14:30 “Those who are most helpless will eat, And the needy will lie down in security- I will destroy your root with famine, And it will kill off your survivors.Zephaniah 3:13“The remnant of Israel will do no wrong And tell no lies, Nor will a deceitful tongue Be found in their mouths- For they will feed and lie down With no one to make them tremble.”That this select remnant shall be blessed with purity and peace. They shall be blessed with purity, both in words and actions: They shall neither do iniquity nor speak lies. Justice and veracity shall command them and govern them, though they be ever so much against their secular interest.They shall not only not speak a direct deliberate lie, but there shall not be a deceitful tongue found in their mouth, not in the mouth of any of them- not the least equivocation shall come from them. They shall be blessed with peace. They shall, as the sheep of God’s pasture, feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.They shall not be fearful themselves, nor shall any about them be frightful to them. Those that are careful not to do iniquity need not be afraid of any calamity, for it cannot hurt them, and therefore should not terrify them.Cross Reference: Psalm 119:3 They also do no unrighteousness- They walk in His ways.Zephaniah 3:14...
