Zephaniah ("The LORD Has Hidden") was a prophet to Judah. He identified himself better than any other of the minor prophets, tracing his ancestry back four generations to Hezekiah, a good king who had led the people back to God during the prophet Isaiah's time. King Josiah, whose reform brought about a period of renewal in Jerusalem, was not only a contemporary of Zephaniah, but a distant relative. Thus the men could have been friends and equally zealous for a return to the pure worship of God. Written about 630 B.C.
"The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing".
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty he will save he will rejoice over thee with joy he will rest in his love he will joy over thee with singing.
