Zephaniah the ProphetZephaniah - A prophet of the Lord who was descended from King Hezekiah (and thus a distant relative of King Josiah).  His mission was to declare judgment upon Judah (as well as other nations).

 

"The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah.  'I will completely remove all things from the face of the earth,' declares the Lord.  'I will remove man and beast; I will remove the birds of the sky and the fish of the sea, and the ruins along with the wicked; and I will cut off man from the face of the earth,' declares the Lord.  'So I will stretch out My hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.  And I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests.'" (Zephaniah 1:1-4, NASB)
