Joel 1:6; Joel 2:7; Joel 2:9; Joel 2:20; Joel 3:9; Joel 3:12
For a nation has invaded my land, Mighty and without number; Its teeth are the teeth of a lion, And it has the fangs of a lioness.
They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like soldiers ; And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths.
They rush on the city, They run on the wall; They climb into the houses, They enter through the windows like a thief.
"But I will remove the northern army far from you, And I will drive it into a parched and desolate land, And its vanguard into the eastern sea, And its rear guard into the western sea. And its stench will arise and its foul smell will come up, For it has done great things."
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare a war; rouse the mighty men! Let all the soldiers draw near, let them come up!
Let the nations be aroused And come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, For there I will sit to judge All the surrounding nations.
