Zephaniah 1:8

the princes—who ought to have been an example of good to others, but were ringleaders in all evil.

the king's children—fulfilled on Zedekiah's children (Jeremiah 39:6); and previously, on Jehoahaz and Eliakim, the sons of Josiah (II Kings 23:31, II Kings 23:36; II Chronicles 36:6; compare also II Kings 20:18; II Kings 21:13). Huldah the prophetess (II Kings 22:20) intimated that which Zephaniah now more expressly foretells.

all such as are clothed with strange apparel—the princes or courtiers who attired themselves in costly garments, imported from abroad; partly for the sake of luxury, and partly to ingratiate themselves with foreign great nations whose costume as well as their idolatries they imitated, [CALVIN]; whereas in costume, as in other respects, God would have them to be separate from the nations. GROTIUS refers the "strange apparel" to garments forbidden by the law, for example, men's garments worn by women, and vice versa, a heathen usage in the worship of Mars and Venus (Deuteronomy 22:5).
