Joel 1:9; Joel 1:13-14; Joel 1:16; Joel 2:9; Joel 3:18
The grain offering and the drink offering are cut off From the house of the LORD . The priests mourn, The ministers of the LORD .
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.
Consecrate a fast, Proclaim a solemn assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land To the house of the LORD your God, And cry out to the LORD .
Has not food been cut off before our eyes, Gladness and joy from the house of our God?
They rush on the city, They run on the wall; They climb into the houses, They enter through the windows like a thief.
And in that day The mountains will drip with sweet wine, And the hills will flow with milk, And all the brooks of Judah will flow with water; And a spring will go out from the house of the LORD To water the valley of Shittim.
