SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:16 En aquel tiempo se dirá a Jerusalén: No temas; Sion, no se debiliten tus manos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zephaniah 3:16 Verse 16. Fear thou not] Thou shalt have no more captivities nor national afflictions.
Let not thine hands be slack.] This may refer, first, to the rebuilding of the temple of God, after the return from Babylon; and, secondly, to their diligence and zeal in the Christian Church.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, fear thou not , etc.] Do not be afraid of any enemies; neither outward ones, the armies of Gog and Magog, the Turk, who will threaten, and will attempt to dispossess them of their land, now returned to it; nor inward and spiritual enemies, sin, Satan, death, and hell, being all vanquished and subdued by Christ: this will be said, not by the enemies themselves, who will confess they have no power to stand before the mighty God, as Aben Ezra; but either by the prophets of the Lord, or by the people themselves, encouraging one another, every man his neighbour, as Kimchi; or rather by the Lord himself, as the Septuagint and Arabic versions supply it, “the Lord shall say to Jerusalem;” this will be said at the time of the Jews’ conversion, when reinstated in their own land, and shall be threatened with another remove from it, which they will have no reason to fear: [and to] Zion, Let not thine hands be slack ; weak, remiss, hang down through fear of mind, and fainting of spirit; and so unfit to meet the enemy, or perform duty; but, on the contrary, pluck up a good heart, be of good courage, fear not the enemy, be vigorous, active, and diligent, in the performance of the service of the Lord, animated by the following considerations:
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-20 - After the promises of taking away sin, follow promises of taking awa trouble. When the cause is removed, the effect will cease. What makes people holy, will make them happy. The precious promises made to the purified people, were to have full accomplishment in the gospel. Thes verses appear chiefly to relate to the future conversion an restoration of Israel, and the glorious times which are to follow. The show the abundant peace, comfort, and prosperity of the church, in the happy times yet to come. He will save; he will be Jesus; he will answe the name, for he will save his people from their sins. Before the glorious times foretold, believers would be sorrowful, and objects of reproach. But the Lord will save the weakest believer, and cause tru Christians to be greatly honoured where they had been treated with contempt. One act of mercy and grace shall serve, both to gather Israe out of their dispersions and to lead them to their own land. Then wil God's Israel be made a name and a praise to eternity. The events alon can fully answer the language of this prophecy. Many are the trouble of the righteous, but they may rejoice in God's love. Surely our heart should honour the Lord, and rejoice in him, when we hear such words of condescension and grace. If now kept from his ordinances, it is ou trial and grief; but in due time we shall be gathered into his templ above. The glory and happiness of the believer will be perfect unchangeable, and eternal, when he is freed from earthly sorrows, an brought to heavenly bliss __________________________________________________________________
