Joel 1

1  The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.

2  Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

3  Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

4  That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten.

5  Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine, for it is cut off from your mouth.

6  For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.

7  He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.

8  Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

9  The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD'S ministers, mourn.

10  The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.
