Joel 1:9; Joel 1:13; Joel 2:17
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.
Let the priests, the LORD'S ministers, Weep between the porch and the altar, And let them say, "Spare Your people, O LORD , And do not make Your inheritance a reproach, A byword among the nations. Why should they among the peoples say, 'Where is their God?' "
