Specifically concerned with the book of the prophet Zephaniah, this monograph examines the ancient witnesses to the text. Zandstra compares three ancient versions - the "Latin Vulgate", the "Syriac Peshitta", and the "Greek Septuagint" - against the original Hebrew of the text. Historically, this study was the first attempt of this kind with the book of "Zephaniah". After giving a brief history of each of these primary versions, Zandstra proceeds to demonstrate their influence on the textual criticism of "Zephaniah". Considering the interdependence of these versions upon one another, the author explores the departures of these versions from the Massoretic Text and variants derived from the consonantal text. Although the text of "Zephaniah" is brief, this historic study has remained a major tool for those who have studied this prophet since its publication.
