Joel 3

VIN(i) 1 "For, look, in those days, and in that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 "I will gather all nations! I will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will execute judgment upon them there for my people and for my heritage, Israel. They have scattered my people among the nations and they have divided up my land. 3 "They cast lots for my people, and traded a boy for a prostitute, and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink. 4 "Yes, and what are you to me, Tyre, and Sidon, and all the regions of Philistia? Will you repay me? And if you repay me, I will swiftly and speedily return your repayment on your own head. 5 since you took my silver and gold, carried my precious treasures into your temples, 6 and sold the sons of Juda and the sons of Jerusalem to the Greeks, that you might remove them far from their borders; 7 "Behold, I will arouse them out of the place where you sold them and will return your recompense upon your head. 8 I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans and to a nation far away, for the LORD has spoken. 9 Proclaim this among the nations: "Prepare for war. Stir up the mighty men. Let all the warriors draw near. Let them come up. 10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, 'I am strong.' 11 Hurry and come, all the nations, from all around, and gather yourselves there. Bring down your mighty warriors, O LORD! 12 Let the nations, be roused, and come up, into the Vale of Jehoshaphat,—for, there, will I sit to judge all the nations, on every side. 13 (4:13) Put forth the sickle; for the harvest is ripe: come, tread down the grapes; for the press is full; the vats overflow; for great is their wickedness. 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision. For the day of the LORD is near, in the valley of decision. 15 The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will stop shining. 16 the LORD will roar from Zion, and thunder from Jerusalem; the heavens and the earth will shake, but the LORD will be a refuge for His people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel. 17 "And truly you will know that I am the LORD your God, dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain. Then Jerusalem will be holy, and no foreigners will invade her again. 18 It will happen in that day, that the mountains will drop down sweet wine, the hills will flow with milk, all the brooks of Judah will flow with waters, and a fountain will flow out from the LORD's house, and will water the valley of Shittim. 19 Egypt will be desolate, and Edom will be a desert, because of violence against the people of Judah since they shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem for all generations. 21 And I will pardon their bloodguilt, which I have not pardoned, for the LORD dwells in Zion."
