Joel 3:3-13 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
3 They cast lots for My people;a they bartered a boy for a prostitute and sold a girl for wine to drink. 4 And also: Tyre, Sidon, and all the territories of Philistia-what are you to Me? Are you paying Me back or trying to get even with Me? I will quickly bring retribution on your heads.b 5 For you took My silver and gold and carried My finest treasuresc to your temples. 6 You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeksd to remove them far from their own territory. 7 Look, I am about to rouse them up from the place where you sold them; I will bring retribution on your heads. 8 I will sell your sons and daughters into the hands of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans,e to a distant nation, for the Lord has spoken. 9 Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for holy war; rouse the warriors; let all the men of war advance and attack! 10 Hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning knives into spears.f Let even the weakling say: I am a warrior. 11 Come quickly,g all you surrounding nations; gather yourselves. Bring down Your warriors there, Lord. 12 Let the nations be roused and come to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit down to judge all the surrounding nations. 13 Swing the sickle because the harvest is ripe. Come and trample [the grapes] because the winepress is full; the wine vats overflow because the wickedness of the nations is great.h
