Rewording necessary[edit]

I am currently rewording large sections of this article, which are clearly a simple paste-job from the corresponding Catholic Encyclopedia entry. [1]

If you'd like to help with the article, please compare the entry to the link provided and ensure that they're not too similar. Zahakiel 13:46, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I agree. 2 years later, this article shows no improvement. The wording (e.g. shameful forms of idolatry) is basically copied from the Catholic Encylopedia. More importantly, it is not scholarly since it gives judgment (rather than citing judgments made). Also, the article mistakenly claims that Zephaniah himself threatens to destroy the remnant of Baal where in fact he is claiming that Yahweh will do so. If I have time I will try to correct a few of these inaccuracies.--JECompton (talk) 16:30, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
