    Zephaniah 3:16

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-01 Pg 70
    Isa. xxxv. 3.

    and that “the dead which are in the grave shall arise,”4311


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.x Pg 5
    Isa. xxxv. 3 in an altered form.

    this refers to the palsy. “Be strong; fear not.”3764


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xii Pg 53
    Isa. xxxv. 3.

    in the sick of the palsy.

    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxiv Pg 52
    Isa. xxxv. 3, 5, 6, Sept.

    When, therefore, He proclaimed the benefits of His cures, then also did He put the scorpions and the serpents under the feet of His saints—even He who had first received this power from the Father, in order to bestow it upon others and then manifested it forth conformably to the order of prophecy.4464

    4464 Secundum ordinem prædicationis.

    Anf-03 v.viii.xx Pg 16
    Ver. 3.

    and the lame leap as an hart?7409


    Npnf-201 iii.xvi.iv Pg 103

    Npnf-201 iii.xvi.iv Pg 91

    Anf-01 v.iii.ix Pg 10
    Isa. xxxv. 4.

    <index subject1="Sabbath" subject2="how to be kept" title="62" id="v.iii.ix-p10.2"/>Let us therefore no longer keep the Sabbath after the Jewish manner, and rejoice in days of idleness; for “he that does not work, let him not eat.”688

    688 2 Thess. iii. 10.

    For say the [holy] oracles, “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat thy bread.”689


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.x Pg 6
    Isa. xxxv. 4.

    Be strong is not vainly repeated, nor is fear not vainly added; because with the renewal of the limbs there was to be, according to the promise, a restoration also of bodily energies: “Arise, and take up thy couch;” and likewise moral courage3765

    3765 Animi vigorem.

    not to be afraid of those who should say, “Who can forgive sins, but God alone?” So that you have here not only the fulfilment of the prophecy which promised a particular kind of healing, but also of the symptoms which followed the cure.  In like manner, you should also recognise Christ in the same prophet as the forgiver of sins. “For,” he says, “He shall remit to many their sins, and shall Himself take away our sins.”3766


    Anf-03 iv.ix.ix Pg 70
    See Isa. xxxv. 4, 5, 6.

    and so on; which works not even you deny that Christ did, inasmuch as you were wont to say that, “on account of the works ye stoned Him not, but because He did them on the Sabbaths.”1312

    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xxii Pg 14
    An inexact quotation of Isa. xl .28.

    Although He had respect to the offerings of Abel, and smelled a sweet savour from the holocaust of Noah, yet what pleasure could He receive from the flesh of sheep, or the odour of burning victims? And yet the simple and God-fearing mind of those who offered what they were receiving from God, both in the way of food and of a sweet smell, was favourably accepted before God, in the sense of respectful homage2975

    2975 Honorem.

    to God, who did not so much want what was offered, as that which prompted the offering. Suppose now, that some dependant were to offer to a rich man or a king, who was in want of nothing, some very insignificant gift, will the amount and quality of the gift bring dishonour2976

    2976 Infuscabit.

    to the rich man and the king; or will the consideration2977

    2977 Titulus.

    of the homage give them pleasure? Were, however, the dependant, either of his own accord or even in compliance with a command, to present to him gifts suitably to his rank, and were he to observe the solemnities due to a king, only without faith and purity of heart, and without any readiness for other acts of obedience, will not that king or rich man consequently exclaim: “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? I am full of your solemnities, your feast-days, and your Sabbaths.”2978


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xiii Pg 5
    Isa. xl. 9.

    “They were mightily3907

    3907 In vigore. Or this phrase may qualify the noun thus: “They were astonished at His doctrine, in its might.”

    astonished at His doctrine; for He was teaching as one who had power.”3908


    Anf-03 Pg 18
    Isa. xl. 9 (Septuagint).

    Also when, with respect to the apostles personally, He says, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, that bring good tidings of good”5252
