1327Put on sackcloth and lament, 28O priests; 29wail, O ministers of the altar. Go in, 30pass the night in sackcloth, 31O ministers of my God! 32Because grain offering and drink offering are withheld from the house of your God.
1433Consecrate a fast; 34call a solemn assembly. Gather 35the elders and 36all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD.
Alas for the day! 37For the day of the LORD is near, and as destruction from the Almightyc it comes.
Is not the food cut off before our eyes, 38joy and gladness from the house of our God?
1739The seed shrivels under the clods;d the storehouses are desolate; the granaries are torn down because 40the grain has dried up.
How 41the beasts groan! The herds of cattle are perplexed because there is no pasture for them; even the flocks of sheep suffer.e
To you, 42O LORD, I call. 43For fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness, 44and flame has burned all the trees of the field.
Even the beasts of the field 45pant for you because the water brooks are dried up, 46and fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
