2 H8085 Hear [H8798] H2205 this, ye old men H238 , and give ear [H8685] H3427 , all ye inhabitants [H8802] H776 of the land H3117 . Hath this been in your days H518 , or even H3117 in the days H1 of your fathers?
3 H5608 Tell [H8761] H1121 ye 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 hath left H697 hath the locust H398 eaten [H8804] H697 ; and that which the locust H3499 hath left H3218 hath the cankerworm H398 eaten [H8804] H3218 ; and that which the cankerworm H3499 hath left H2625 hath the caterpiller H398 eaten [H8804] .
5 H6974 Awake [H8685] H7910 , ye drunkards H1058 , and weep [H8798] H3213 ; and howl [H8685] H8354 , all ye drinkers [H8802] H3196 of wine H6071 , because of the new wine H3772 ; for it is cut off [H8738] H6310 from your mouth.
6 H1471 For a nation H5927 is come up [H8804] H776 upon my land H6099 , strong H4557 , and without number H8127 , whose teeth H8127 are the teeth H738 of a lion H4973 , and he hath the cheek teeth H3833 of a great lion.
7 H7760 He hath laid [H8804] H1612 my vine H8047 waste H7111 , and barked H8384 my fig tree H2834 : he hath made it clean [H8800] H2834 bare [H8804] H7993 , and cast it away [H8689] H8299 ; the branches H3835 thereof are made white [H8689] .
8 H421 Lament [H8798] H1330 like a virgin H2296 girded [H8803] H8242 with sackcloth H1167 for the husband H5271 of her youth.
9 H4503 The meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H3772 is cut off [H8717] H1004 from the house H3068 of the LORD H3548 ; the priests H3068 , the LORD'S H8334 ministers [H8764] H56 , mourn [H8804] .
10 H7704 The field H7703 is wasted [H8795] H127 , the land H56 mourneth [H8804] H1715 ; for the corn H7703 is wasted [H8795] H8492 : the new wine H3001 is dried up [H8689] H3323 , the oil H535 languisheth [H8797] .
11 H3001 Be ye ashamed [H8685] H406 , O ye husbandmen H3213 ; howl [H8685] H3755 , O ye vinedressers H2406 , for the wheat H8184 and for the barley H7105 ; because the harvest H7704 of the field H6 is perished [H8804] .
12 H1612 The vine H3001 is dried up [H8689] H8384 , and the fig tree H535 languisheth [H8797] H7416 ; the pomegranate H8558 tree, the palm tree H8598 also, and the apple tree H6086 , even all the trees H7704 of the field H3001 , are withered [H8804] H8342 : because joy H3001 is withered away [H8689] H1121 from the sons H120 of men.
13 H2296 Gird [H8798] H5594 yourselves, and lament [H8798] H3548 , ye priests H3213 : howl [H8685] H8334 , ye ministers [H8764] H4196 of the altar H935 : come [H8798] H3885 , lie all night [H8798] H8242 in sackcloth H8334 , ye ministers [H8764] H430 of my God H4503 : for the meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H4513 is withholden [H8738] H1004 from the house H430 of your God.
14 H6942 Sanctify [H8761] H6685 ye a fast H7121 , call [H8798] H6116 a solemn assembly H622 , gather [H8798] H2205 the elders H3427 and all the inhabitants [H8802] H776 of the land H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H2199 , and cry [H8798] H3068 unto the LORD,
15 H162 Alas H3117 for the day H3117 ! for the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is at hand H7701 , and as a destruction H7706 from the Almighty H935 shall it come [H8799] .
16 H400 Is not the meat H3772 cut off [H8738] H5869 before our eyes H8057 , yea, joy H1524 and gladness H1004 from the house H430 of our God?
17 H6507 The seed H5685 is rotten [H8804] H4053 under their clods H214 , the garners H8074 are laid desolate [H8738] H4460 , the barns H2040 are broken down [H8738] H1715 ; for the corn H3001 is withered [H8689] .
18 H929 How do the beasts H584 groan [H8737] H5739 ! the herds H1241 of cattle H943 are perplexed [H8738] H4829 , because they have no pasture H5739 ; yea, the flocks H6629 of sheep H816 are made desolate [H8738] .
19 H3068 O LORD H7121 , to thee will I cry [H8799] H784 : for the fire H398 hath devoured [H8804] H4999 the pastures H4057 of the wilderness H3852 , and the flame H3857 hath burned [H8765] H6086 all the trees H7704 of the field.
