Joel 1:13; Joel 1:15; Joel 2:1; Joel 2:9; Joel 2:31; Joel 3:5; Joel 3:11; Joel 3:13
Gird yourselves with sackcloth And lament, O priests; Wail, O ministers of the altar! Come, spend the night in sackcloth O ministers of my God, For the grain offering and the drink offering Are withheld from the house of your God.
Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is near, And it will come as destruction from the Almighty.
Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near,
They rush on the city, They run on the wall; They climb into the houses, They enter through the windows like a thief.
"The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.
"Since you have taken My silver and My gold, brought My precious treasures to your temples,
Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations, And gather yourselves there. Bring down, O LORD , Your mighty ones.
Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.
