SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:12 Â¶ Vosotros también los de Etiopía seréis muertos con mi espada.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zephaniah 2:12 Verse 12. Ye Ethiopians also] Nebuchadnezzar subdued these. See Jeremiah xlvi. 2, 9; Ezek. xxx. 4, 10. See also on Amos ix. 17.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. Ye Ethiopians also , etc.] Or, “as for ye Ethiopians also” ; not the Ethiopians in Africa beyond Egypt, at a distance from the land of Israel, and the countries before mentioned; but the inhabitants of Arabia Chusea, or Ethiopia, which lay near to Moab and Ammon; these should not escape, but suffer with their neighbours, who sometimes distressed the people of the Jews, and made war with them, being nigh them; (see 2 Chronicles 14:9 21:16): ye [shall be] slain by my sword ; or, “the slain of my sword are they” f85 ; R.
Japhet thinks here is a defect of the note of similitude “as”, which should be supplied thus, “ye” are, or shall be, “the slain of my sword”, as they; as the Moabites and Ammonites; that is, these Ethiopians should be slain as well as they by the sword of Nebuchadnezzar; which is called the sword of God, because he was an instrument in the hand of God for punishing the nations of the earth. This was fulfilled very probably when Egypt was subdued by Nebuchadnezzar, with whom Ethiopia was confederate, as well as near unto it, ( Jeremiah 46:1,2). The destruction of these by the Assyrians is predicted, ( Isaiah 20:4).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-15 - Those are really in a woful condition who have the word of the Lor against them, for no word of his shall fall to the ground. God wil restore his people to their rights, though long kept from them. It ha been the common lot of God's people, in all ages, to be reproached an reviled. God shall be worshipped, not only by all Israel, and the strangers who join them, but by the heathen. Remote nations must be reckoned with for the wrongs done to God's people. The sufferings of the insolent and haughty in prosperity, are unpitied and unlamented But all the desolations of flourishing nations will make way for the overturning Satan's kingdom. Let us improve our advantages, and expec the performance of every promise, praying that our Father's name may be hallowed every where, over all the earth __________________________________________________________________
