    "The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah...in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah." Did anyone in Israel, besides the the righteous, know or understand that they were at the very end of the LORD's patience and restraint concerning ALL their wickedness and incurable disobedience, unbelief, hatred and hostility toward everything good and holy of God? Does anyone have a clue now?
