An exhortation to repentance, Zep_2:1-3. The judgment of the Philistines, Zep_2:4-7 of Moab and Ammon, Zep_2:8-11\, of Ethiopia, Zep_2:12, and Assyria, Zep_2:13-15.
Gather yourselves together; call a solemn assembly, as Joe_1:14, proclaim a fast. Let all have notice given to meet on this work, and, being gathered together, search yourselves, your hearts and ways, and repent.
Gather together; repeated to affect them the more, and to hasten them to it, and make them serious in it.
O nation of the Jews, yet a people, yet my people, though next door almost to being no people.
Not desired; neither desirous to return, nor desirable in your return; foolishly unwilling to return, and utterly unworthy to be received on your return: yet gather together, search your ways, and try what you may do for your safety.
