1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H1961 that came H3100 to Joel H1121 the son H6602 of Pethuel.
  2 H8085 Hear H2063 this, H2205 you old H238 men, and give ear, H3605 all H3427 you inhabitants H776 of the land. H2063 Has this H1961 been H3117 in your days, H518 or even H3117 in the days H1 of your fathers?
  3 H5608 Tell H1121 you your children H1121 of it, and let your children H1121 tell their children, H1121 and their children H312 another H1755 generation.
  4 H1501 That which the palmerworm H3499 has left H697 has the locust H398 eaten; H697 and that which the locust H3499 has left H3218 has the cankerworm H398 eaten; H3218 and that which the cankerworm H3499 has left H2625 has the caterpillar H398 eaten.
  5 H6974 Awake, H7910 you drunkards, H1058 and weep; H3213 and howl, H3605 all H8354 you drinkers H3196 of wine, H5921 because H6071 of the new wine; H3772 for it is cut H6310 off from your mouth.
  6 H1471 For a nation H5927 is come H776 up on my land, H6099 strong, H369 and without H4557 number, H8127 whose teeth H8127 are the teeth H738 of a lion, H4973 and he has the cheek H4973 teeth H3833 of a great H3833 lion.
  7 H7760 He has laid H1612 my vine H8047 waste, H7111 and barked H8384 my fig H2834 tree: he has made it clean bore, H7993 and cast H8299 it away; the branches H3835 thereof are made white.
  8 H421 Lament H1330 like a virgin H2296 girded H8242 with sackcloth H1167 for the husband H5271 of her youth.
  9 H4503 The meat offering H5262 and the drink H3772 offering is cut H1004 off from the house H3068 of the LORD; H3548 the priests, H3068 the LORD’s H8334 ministers, H56 mourn.
  10 H7704 The field H7703 is wasted, H127 the land H56 mourns; H1715 for the corn H7703 is wasted: H8492 the new H8492 wine H3001 is dried H3323 up, the oil H535 languishes.
  11 H954 Be you ashamed, H406 O you farmers; H3213 howl, H3755 O you vinedressers, H2406 for the wheat H8184 and for the barley; H3588 because H7105 the harvest H7704 of the field H6 is perished.
  12 H1612 The vine H3001 is dried H8384 up, and the fig H535 tree languishes; H7416 the pomegranate H8558 tree, the palm H1571 tree also, H8598 and the apple H3605 tree, even all H6086 the trees H7704 of the field, H3001 are withered: H3588 because H8342 joy H3001 is withered H1121 away from the sons H120 of men.
  13 H2296 Gird H5594 yourselves, and lament, H3548 you priests: H3213 howl, H8334 you ministers H4196 of the altar: H935 come, H3885 lie H3885 all H8242 night in sackcloth, H8334 you ministers H430 of my God: H4503 for the meat offering H5262 and the drink H4513 offering is withheld H1004 from the house H430 of your God.
  14 H6942 Sanctify H6685 you a fast, H7121 call H6116 a solemn H6116 assembly, H622 gather H2205 the elders H3605 and all H3427 the inhabitants H776 of the land H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H430 your God, H2199 and cry H3068 to the LORD,
  15 H162 Alas H3117 for the day! H3117 for the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is at H7138 hand, H7701 and as a destruction H7706 from the Almighty H935 shall it come.
  16 H400 Is not the meat H3772 cut H5048 off before H5869 our eyes, H8057 yes, joy H1524 and gladness H1004 from the house H430 of our God?
  17 H6507 The seed H5685 is rotten H8478 under H4053 their clods, H214 the garners H8074 are laid desolate, H4460 the barns H2040 are broken H2040 down; H1715 for the corn H3001 is withered.
  18 H4100 How H929 do the beasts H584 groan! H5739 the herds H1241 of cattle H943 are perplexed, H3588 because H369 they have no H4829 pasture; H1571 yes, H5739 the flocks H6629 of sheep H816 are made desolate.
  19 H3068 O LORD, H7121 to you will I cry: H784 for the fire H398 has devoured H4999 the pastures H4057 of the wilderness, H3852 and the flame H3857 has burned H3605 all H6086 the trees H7704 of the field.
  20 H929 The beasts H7704 of the field H6165 cry H1571 also H650 to you: for the rivers H4325 of waters H3001 are dried H784 up, and the fire H398 has devoured H4999 the pastures H4057 of the wilderness.
