ZEPHANIAH

1. A Kohathite, in the seventh generation from Levi, 1 Chronicles 6:36.

2. A priest, high in the sacred order, during the troublous times of king Zedekiah, who often communicated with Jeremiah by his agency. He was among the captives slain by the king of Babylon at Riblah, 2 Kings 25:18-21 Jeremiah 21:1 29:25,29 37:3 52:24-27.

3. The ninth in order of the minor prophets, of the tribe of Simeon. He prophesied in the early part of king Josiahs reign, before the reforms of that good king were instituted, 2 Chronicles 34:3 Zephaniah 1:4-5.

This would fix his date about 630 B. C., and the destruction of Nineveh, foretold in Zephaniah 2:13, occurred in 625 B. C. His prophecy contains two oracles, in three chapters, directed against idolaters in Judah, against surrounding idolatrous nations, and against wicked rulers, priests, and prophets. It closes with cheering promises of gospel blessings. His style and manner are like those of Jeremiah, during whose early years they were contemporary. His subsequent history is unknown.
