The fields are ruined, the ground is dried up;1 the grain is destroyed, the new wine2 is dried up, the oil fails.3
Despair, you farmers,4 wail, you vine growers; grieve for the wheat and the barley,5 because the harvest of the field is destroyed.6
The vine is dried up and the fig tree is withered;7 the pomegranate,8 the palm and the apple tree-- all the trees of the field--are dried up.9 Surely the joy of mankind is withered away.
