Zep 3:8

Hebrew Letter Matching Exercise
Notice the two columns to the right, the 1st column lists the Hebrew Aleph-Bet (with the sofits at the bottom) and the 2nd column is a list of all the Hebrew words found in Zep 3:9. The exercise is to draw a line from the the 1st column to the 2nd column matching up the Hebrew letters. I have included this verse below (in English and Interlinear).

Zep 3:9 is the only verse in the Hebrew bible where at least one occurrence of every Hebrew letter and at least one occurrence of every sofit can be found. That fact by itself could be viewed as a mere coincidence, but consider the previous verse

Zep 3:8 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YHVH, to serve him with one consent.

For more information, see this article #222.
Zep 3:9 KJV
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith YHVH, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
