  1. Are you familiar with Dennis Jernigan? He translated Zephaniah 3:17 himself and this is what he came up with. It’s the basis for the song “When the Night Is Falling.” I love this translation.

    The Eternal, self-existent God
    The God who is three in one
    He who dwells in the center of your being
    Is a powerful, valiant warrior
    He is come to set you free
    To keep you safe
    And to bring you victory.

    He is cheered
    And He beams with exceeding joy
    And takes pleasure in your presence
    He has engraved a place
    For Himself in you
    And there He quietly rests
    In His love and affection for you.

    He cannot contain Himself at the thought of you
    And with the greatest of joy
    Spins around wildly
    In anticipation over you
    And has placed you above all other creations
    And in the highest place in His priorities
    In fact, he shouts and sings in triumph
    Joyfully proclaiming the gladness of His heart
    In a song of rejoicing…

    All because of YOU!!
