"I will repay you for the years the locusts1 have eaten2-- the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm-- my great army3 that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,4 and you will praise5 the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders6 for you; never again will my people be shamed.7
Then you will know8 that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD 9 your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.10
"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit11 on all people.12 Your sons and daughters will prophesy,13 your old men will dream dreams,14 your young men will see visions.
Even on my servants,15 both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.16
I will show wonders in the heavens17 and on the earth,18 blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness19 and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.20
And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD 21 will be saved;22 for on Mount Zion23 and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance,24 as the LORD has said, among the survivors25 whom the LORD calls.26
