Outline of Zephaniah

Zephaniah warns of coming destruction for both Judah and for the surrounding nations.  This would be carried out against Judah by the Babylonians but some of this judgment is yet future as it was not as complete as Zephaniah describes it.  Likewise, Zephaniah offers hope of the redemption of Israel that has yet to take place.
