029:Book 29


029: Joel Book 29


029:Joel 001:001
The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.


029:001:002
Hear this,
ye old men,
and give ear,
all ye inhabitants of the land.
Hath this been in your days,
or even in the days of your fathers?


029:001:003
Tell ye your children of it,
and let your children tell their children,
and their children another generation.


029:001:004
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.


029:001:005
Awake,
ye drunkards,
and weep;
and howl,
all ye drinkers of wine,
because of the new wine;
for it is cut off from your mouth.


029:001:006
For a nation is come up upon my land,
strong,
and without number,
whose teeth are the teeth of a lion,
and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.


029:001:007
He hath laid my vine waste,
and barked my fig tree:
he hath made it clean bare,
and cast it away;
the branches thereof are made white.


029:001:008
Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.


029:001:009
The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD;
the priests,
the LORD's ministers,
mourn.


029:001:010
The field is wasted,
the land mourneth;
for the corn is wasted:
the new wine is dried up,
the oil languisheth.


029:001:011
Be ye ashamed,
O ye husbandmen;
howl,
O ye vinedressers,
for the wheat and for the barley;
because the harvest of the field is perished.


029:001:012
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 joy is withered away from the sons of men.


029:001:013
Gird 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.


029:001:014
Sanctify ye a fast,
call a solemn assembly,
gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God,
and cry unto the LORD,


029:001:015
Alas for the day!
for the day of the LORD is at hand,
and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.


029:001:016
Is not the meat cut off before our eyes,
yea,
joy and gladness from the house of our God?


029:001:017
The seed is rotten under their clods,
the garners are laid desolate,
the barns are broken down;
for the corn is withered.


029:001:018
How do the beasts groan!
the herds of cattle are perplexed,
because they have no pasture;
yea,
the flocks of sheep are made desolate.


029:001:019
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.


029:001:020
The beasts of the field cry also unto thee:
for the rivers of waters are dried up,
and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
