Yo'el 2:15-27

Joel 2:15-27

15  Blow a ram's horn in Tsiyon, qadosh a fast, call an assembly.

16  Gather the people, qadosh the assembly, assemble the elders, gather the children and those that nurse on breasts. Let a bridegroom come out from his room, and a bride from her dressing room.

17  Let the kohenim, servants of יהוה, weep between the porch and the altar. And let them say, "Spare Your people, O יהוה, and do not give Your inheritance to reproach, for the gentiles to rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their Elohim?' "

18  And let יהוה be jealous for His land, and spare His people.

19  And let יהוה answer and say to His people, "See, I am sending you the grain and the new wine and the oil, and you shall be satisfied by them. And no longer do I make you a reproach among the gentiles.

20  "And the Northerner I shall remove far from you, and drive him away into a dry and deserted land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his rear toward the western sea. And his stench shall come up and his smell rise, for he has done greatness."

21  Do not fear, O land, be glad and rejoice, for יהוה has done greatness!

22  Do not fear, you beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness shall spring forth, and the tree shall bear its fruit, the fig tree and the vine shall yield their strength.

23  And you children of Tsiyon, be glad and rejoice in יהוה your Elohim, for He shall give you the Teacher of Righteousness, and cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.

24  And the threshing-floors shall be filled with grain, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

25  "Then I shall repay you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, and the consuming locust, and the gnawing locust, My great army which I sent among you.

26  "Then you shall eat - eat and be satisfied - and shall praise the Name of יהוה your Elohim, who has done with you so wondrously. And My people shall never be put to shame.

27  "And you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra'ĕl, and that I am יהוה your Elohim and there is no one else. And My people shall never be put to shame.
