    Sing, O daughter of Zion - Here is not only a gracious prophetic promise of their restoration from captivity, but of their conversion to God through Christ.

    Barnes' Notes on Zephaniah 3:14

    Sing, O daughter of Sion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem - Very remarkable throughout all these verses is the use of the sacred number three, secretly conveying to the thoughtful soul the thought of Him, Father Son and Holy Spirit, the Holy and Undivided Trinity by whose operation these things shall be. Threefold is the description of their being freed from sins:

    (1) they shall "not do iniquity,"

    (2) "nor speak lies,"

    (3) "neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth."

    Threefold their blessedness; They shall:

    (1) "feed,"

    (2) "lie down,"

    (3) "none make them afraid."

    Threefold the exhortation to joy here. (Rup.): "Sing to God the Father; 'shout' to God the Son; 'be glad and rejoice' in God the Holy Spirit, which Holy Trinity is One God, from whom thou hast received it that thou art:

    (1) 'the daughter of Zion'

    (2) 'Israel'

    (3) 'the daughter of Jerusalem'

    'The daughter of Zion' by faith, 'Israel' by hope, 'Jerusalem' by charity." And this hidden teaching of that holy mystery is continued; "The Lord," God the Father, "hath taken away thy judgments; He God" the Son, "hath cast out (cleared quite away) thine enemy; the king of Israel, the Lord," the Holy Spirit, "is in the midst of thee!" Zephaniah 3:15. The promise is threefold:

    (1) "thou shalt not see evil anymore"
