The Prophecy of Sophonias

SOPHONIAS, whose name, saith ST. JEROME, signifies THE WATCHMAN OF THE LORD, or THE HIDDEN OF THE LORD, prophesied in the beginning of the reign of Josias. He was a native of Sarabatha, and of the tribe of Simeon, according to the more general opinion. He prophesied the punishments of the Jews, for their idolatry and other crimes; also the punishments that were to come on divers nations; the coming of Christ, the conversion of the Gentiles, the blindness of the Jews, and their conversion towards the end of the world.
