Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zephaniah 3:15

_ _ The cause for joy: “The Lord hath taken away thy judgments,” namely, those sent by Him upon thee. After the taking away of sin (Zephaniah 3:13) follows the taking away of trouble. When the cause is removed, the effect will cease. Happiness follows in the wake of holiness.

_ _ the Lord is in the midst of thee — Though He seemed to desert thee for a time, He is now present as thy safeguard (Zephaniah 3:17).

_ _ not see evil any more — Thou shalt not experience it (Jeremiah 5:12; Jeremiah 44:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zephaniah 3:14-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zephaniah 3:15

Taken away — Abolished, and put an end to the judgments thy sins brought upon thee. Thine enemy — The Babylonian. Is in the midst — He is returned to redeem and govern thee. Any more — While thy carriage is as becomes my presence with thee, thou shalt neither fear, nor feel the like evils.
