Zephaniah spoke of the "last days" -- the future around his time (or even possibly yet to come now):
- "'On the day of the Lord's sacrifice I will punish the princes and the king's sons and all those clad in foreign clothes." (Zephaniah 1:8)
- "...Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the Lord's anger." (Zephariah 2:3)
- "On that day they will say to Jerusalem...The Lord
your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take
great delight in you...will quiet you with His
love...will rejoice over you with singing."
