An Invasion of Locusts

2 Hear this,1 you elders;2 listen, all who live in the land.3 Has anything like this ever happened in your days or in the days of your forefathers?4 3 Tell it to your children,5 and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation.6 4 What the locust7 swarm has left the great locusts have eaten; what the great locusts have left the young locusts have eaten; what the young locusts have left8 other locustsa have eaten.9 5 Wake up, you drunkards, and weep! Wail, all you drinkers of wine;10 wail because of the new wine, for it has been snatched11 from your lips. 6 A nation has invaded my land, powerful and without number;12 it has the teeth13 of a lion, the fangs of a lioness. 7 It has laid waste14 my vines and ruined my fig trees.15 It has stripped off their bark and thrown it away, leaving their branches white.
