Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zephaniah 1:9

_ _ those that leap on the threshold — the servants of the princes, who, after having gotten prey (like hounds) for their masters, leap exultingly on their masters’ thresholds; or, on the thresholds of the houses which they break into [Calvin]. Jerome explains it of those who walk up the steps into the sanctuary with haughtiness. Rosenmuller translates, “Leap over the threshold”; namely, in imitation of the Philistine custom of not treading on the threshold, which arose from the head and hands of Dragon being broken off on the threshold before the ark (1 Samuel 5:5). Compare Isaiah 2:6, “thy people ... are soothsayers like the Philistines.” Calvin’s view agrees best with the latter clause of the verse.

_ _ fill ... masters’ houses with violence, etc. — that is, with goods obtained with violence, etc.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zephaniah 1:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zephaniah 1:9

In the same day — At the same time. Their masters houses — Either the oppressing kings, whose officers these were, or publick officers and judges, whose servants thus spoiled the poor. Violence — Goods taken by force, by false accusations, or by suborned evidence.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zephaniah 1:9

(e) He means the servants of the rulers who invade other men's houses, and rejoice and leap for joy, when they can get any gain to please their master with.

The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper [as white] as snow.
