Joel 1    

The aword of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. 2 Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. bHath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? 3 cTell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. 4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten. 5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; dfor it is cut off from your mouth. 6 For ea nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, fwhose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. 7 He hath glaid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.

8 hLament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for ithe husband of her youth. 9 jThe meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD'S ministers, mourn. 10 The field is wasted, kthe land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: lthe new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. 11 mBe ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished. 12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because njoy is withered away from the sons of men. 13 oGird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

14 pSanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and qall the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD, 15 rAlas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. 16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, sjoy and gladness from the house of our God? 17 The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered. 18 How do tthe beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. 19 O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. 20 The beasts of the field ucry also unto thee: for vthe rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
