This process allows the plot's conflict and resolution to unfold in an orderly fashion that lets tension build throughout the book. Dialogue in Zephaniah Zephaniah's framework is built on dialogue between Yahweh and the prophet that forms seven sets of speeches in the text. These speeches are evident because of the writer's shifting between first- and thirdperson narration. Several commentators note the presence of two speakers in Zephaniah. Gerhard von Rad realizes that the book 3. A Close Reading of Zephaniah 57 displays 'a continuous change in style between objective descriptions of events and words spoken by God in the first person' (1965:122).
Zephaniah definitely contains such passages. Certainly this category points out the subtle nature of much Hebrew poetry. Recently several writers have attempted to refine traditional notions of parallelism. James Kugel argues that parallelism is a process of intensification, or heightening, that fits few if any discernible patterns. To make his point he cites the differences between the truly parallel tendencies of Ugaritic poetry and Old Testament poetry, and offers excellent discussions of the various kinds of poetic lines in Scripture.
Each of the three traditional divisions of the canon contain poetry. Most significant for this study is the predominance of prophetic poetry. Norman Gottwald writes: Lamentation, Obadiah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah are poetic in their entirety (with the exception of superscriptions). The greater parts of Job, Isaiah, Hosea, Joel, and Amos are poetic, and Jeremiah is about one half poetry (829). As Gottwald says, Zephaniah is poetic except for its inscription. This judgment is perhaps the most universally shared aspect of Zephaniah studies.
