December 16 (civil) / December 3 (church)
Thou didst comprehend from of old the things that would come to pass,/ thou didst clearly foretell our eternal redemption and proclaim Christ as the King of Sion./ O Prophet Zephaniah, having been delivered from the curse by Him we cry out to thee:/ Glory to Him Who has glorified thee;/ glory to Him Who has crowned thee;/ glory to Him Who through thee grants forgiveness to all.

The Bible tells us that in God's time, the day begins with evening ("The evening and the morning were the first day"), so the services of the Church begin in the evening with Vespers, a service that in some ways "closes" the day that is past and in other ways begins the new day. The next morning, the services of the Third Hour and the Sixth Hour continue the services of that day, followed immediately by the Divine Liturgy.
