The Book of Joel Chapter 1. The word of the Lord that came to Joel The son of pithule Hear this you elders And give ear all you inhabitants of the Land Has anything like this happened in your Days Or even in the days of your fathers Tell your children about it let your Children tell their children and their Children another generation What the chewing Locust left the Swarming Locust has eaten What the swarming Locust left the Crawling Locust has eaten And what the crawling Locust left the Consuming Locust has eaten Awake you drunkards and weep and whale All you drinkers of wine because of the New wine for it has been cut off from Your mouth For a nation has come up against my land Strong and without number His teeth are the teeth of a lion and he Has the fangs of a fierce lion He has laid waste my Vine and ruined my Fig tree He has stripped it bare and thrown it Away Its branches are made white Lament Like a Virgin girded with Sackcloth for the husband of her youth

The grain offering and the drink Offering have been cut off from the House of the Lord The priest's mourn who minister to the Lord The field is wasted the land Mourns For the grain is ruined the new wine is Dried up the oil fails Be ashamed you Farmers whale you Vine Dresses for the wheat and the barley Because the Harvest of the field has Perished The vine has dried up and the fig tree Has withered The pomegranate tree the palm tree also And the apple tree all the trees of the Field are withered Surely Joy has withered away from the Sons of men Gird yourselves and lament you priests Whale you who Minister before the altar Come lie all night in sackcloth you who Minister to my God For the grain offering and the drink Offering are withheld from the house of Your God Consecrate a fast call a sacred assembly Gather the elders and all the Inhabitants of the land into the house Of the Lord your God and cry out to the Lord Alas for the day For the day of the Lord is at hand It shall come as destruction from the

Almighty It's not the food cut off before our Eyes joy and gladness from the house of Our God The seed shrivels under the clods Storehouses are in shambles Barns are broken down for the grain has Withered How the animals groan the herds of Cattle are restless because they have no Pasture Even the flocks of sheep suffer Punishment O Lord to you I cry out For fire has devoured the open pastures And a flame has burned all the trees of The field The beasts of the field also cry out to You for the water Brooks are dried up And fire has devoured the open pastures
