Zephaniah traces his lineage to King Hezekiah. His news is not a word of comfort, but rather a word of judgment. Zephaniah speaks during the reign of Josiah approximately 630B.C. This time period is very similar to that of Nahum’s prophecies.
Nahum speaks against the city of Nineveh somewhere between 664 B.C. and 612 B.C. He likely prophesied during the reign of Manasseh, Amon, or Josiah. Nahum sounds like he brings a message of judgment, but his name means “comfort”.
