1 This is the word of Yahweh that came to Joel, son of Pethuel.
The attack of the locusts
2 Hear this, you elders!
2 Listen, all you, land dwellers!
2 Has such happened in your days or in the days of your ancestors? 3 Tell it to your children, then your children to their children, and then their children to the next generation.
4 What the cutting locusts left, the swarming locusts ate. What the swarming locusts left, the hopping locusts ate. What the hopping locusts left, the destroying locusts ate.
5 Wake up, drunkards, and weep! Wail, drink ers of wine, because of the sweet wine withheld from your mouths. 6 A nation numerous and mighty has invaded my country.
6 It has the teeth of a lion and the fangs of a lioness. 7 It has destroyed my vines and ruined my fig trees. It has stripped off their bark and left white their branches.
8 Mourn like a virgin in sackcloth, grieving for the husband of her youth.
9 Grain and drink offerings are not found in the House of Yahweh. The priests who minister before Yahweh are in mourning.
10 The fields are in ruin, the earth mourns, for the grain is destroyed
11 Grieve, O you farmers
13 Gird yourselves, O priests, and weep
14 Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land into the house of your God,
14 and cry out to Yahweh, 15 “What a dreadful day – the day of Yahweh that draws near and comes as ruin from the Almighty!”
16 Has not the food been taken away from us before our very eyes, and joy and gladness too from the house of our God?
17 The seed under the clods lies shriveled
