3 H5608 Tell H1121 your children H1121 about it, and have your children H1121 tell their children, H1121 and their children, H312 another H1755 generation.
4 H1501 What the swarming locust H3499 has left, H697 the great locust H398 has eaten. H697 What the great locust H3499 has left, H3218 the grasshopper H398 has eaten. H3218 What the grasshopper H3499 has left, H2625 the caterpillar H398 has eaten.
5 H6974 Wake H7910 up, you drunkards, H1058 and weep! H3213 Wail, H8354 all you drinkers H3196 of wine, H6071 because of the sweet wine; H3772 for it is cut off H6310 from your mouth.
6 H1471 For a nation H5927 has come up H776 on my land, H6099 strong, H4557 and without number. H8127 His teeth H8127 are the teeth H738 of a lion, H4973 and he has the fangs H3833 of a lioness.

9 H4503 The meal offering H5262 and the drink offering H3772 are cut off H3068 from Yahweh's H1004 house. H3548 The priests, H3068 Yahweh's H8334 ministers, H56 mourn.

11 H3001 Be confounded, H406 you farmers! H3213 Wail, H3755 you vineyard keepers; H2406 for the wheat H8184 and for the barley; H7105 for the harvest H7704 of the field H6 has perished.
12 H1612 The vine H3001 has dried up, H8384 and the fig tree H535 withered; H7416 the pomegranate H8598 tree, the palm tree H8598 also, and the apple tree, H6086 even all of the trees H7704 of the field H3001 are withered; H8342 for joy H3001 has withered away H1121 from the sons H120 of men.
13 H2296 Put H5594 on sackcloth and mourn, H3548 you priests! H3213 Wail, H8334 you ministers H4196 of the altar. H935 Come, H3885 lie all night H8242 in sackcloth, H8334 you ministers H430 of my God, H4503 for the meal offering H5262 and the drink offering H4513 are withheld H430 from your God's H1004 house.

16 H400 Isn't the food H3772 cut off H5869 before our eyes; H8057 joy H1524 and gladness H1004 from the house H430 of our God?
17 H6507 The seeds H5685 rot H4053 under their clods. H214 The granaries H8074 are laid desolate. H214 The barns H2040 are broken down, H1715 for the grain H3001 has withered.
18 H929 How the animals H584 groan! H5739 The herds H1241 of livestock H943 are perplexed, H4829 because they have no pasture. H5739 Yes, the flocks H6629 of sheep H816 are made desolate.
