2 H8085 [H8798] Hear H2205 this, ye old men, H238 [H8685] and give ear, H3427 [H8802] all ye inhabitants H776 of the land. H3117 Hath this been in your days, H518 or even H3117 in the days H1 of your fathers?
3 H5608 [H8761] Tell 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 [H8804] eaten; H697 and that which the locust H3499 hath left H3218 hath the cankerworm H398 [H8804] eaten; H3218 and that which the cankerworm H3499 hath left H2625 hath the caterpiller H398 [H8804] eaten.
5 H6974 [H8685] Awake, H7910 ye drunkards, H1058 [H8798] and weep; H3213 [H8685] and wail, H8354 [H8802] all ye drinkers H3196 of wine, H6071 because of the new wine; H3772 [H8738] for it is cut off H6310 from your mouth.
6 H1471 For a nation H5927 [H8804] is come up 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 [H8804] He hath laid H1612 my vine H8047 waste, H7111 and barked H8384 my fig tree: H2834 [H8800] he hath stripped it H2834 [H8804] bare, H7993 [H8689] and cast it away; H8299 its branches H3835 [H8689] are made white.
8 H421 [H8798] Lament H1330 like a virgin H2296 [H8803] girded H8242 with sackcloth H1167 for the husband H5271 of her youth.
9 H4503 The meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H3772 [H8717] is cut off H1004 from the house H3068 of the LORD; H3548 the priests, H3068 the LORD'S H8334 [H8764] ministers, H56 [H8804] mourn.
10 H7704 The field H7703 [H8795] is wasted, H127 the soil H56 [H8804] mourneth; H1715 for the grain H7703 [H8795] is wasted: H8492 the new wine H3001 [H8689] is dried up, H3323 the oil H535 [H8797] languisheth.
11 H3001 [H8685] Be ye ashamed, H406 O ye farmers; H3213 [H8685] wail, H3755 O ye vinedressers, H2406 for the wheat H8184 and for the barley; H7105 because the harvest H7704 of the field H6 [H8804] hath been lost.
12 H1612 The vine H3001 [H8689] is dried up, H8384 and the fig tree H535 [H8797] languisheth; H7416 the pomegranate H8558 tree, the palm tree H8598 also, and the apple tree, H6086 even all the trees H7704 of the field, H3001 [H8804] are withered: H8342 because joy H3001 [H8689] is withered away H1121 from the sons H120 of men.
13 H2296 [H8798] Gird H5594 [H8798] yourselves, and lament, H3548 ye priests: H3213 [H8685] wail, H8334 [H8764] ye ministers H4196 of the altar: H935 [H8798] come, H3885 [H8798] lie all night H8242 in sackcloth, H8334 [H8764] ye ministers H430 of my God: H4503 for the meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H4513 [H8738] is withheld H1004 from the house H430 of your God.
14 H6942 [H8761] Sanctify H6685 ye a fast, H7121 [H8798] call H6116 a solemn assembly, H622 [H8798] gather H2205 the elders H3427 [H8802] and all the inhabitants H776 of the land H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H430 your God, H2199 [H8798] and cry H3068 to 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 ravaging H7706 from the Almighty H935 [H8799] shall it come.
16 H400 Is not the food H3772 [H8738] cut off H5869 before our eyes, H8057 and joy H1524 and gladness H1004 from the house H430 of our God?
17 H6507 The seed H5685 [H8804] hath perished H4053 under their clods, H214 the storehouses H8074 [H8738] are laid desolate, H4460 the barns H2040 [H8738] are broken down; H1715 for the grain H3001 [H8689] is withered.
18 H929 How do the beasts H584 [H8737] groan! H5739 the herds H1241 of cattle H943 [H8738] are perplexed, H4829 because they have no pasture; H5739 yea, the flocks H6629 of sheep H816 [H8738] are made desolate.
19 H3068 O LORD, H7121 [H8799] to thee will I call: H784 for the fire H398 [H8804] hath devoured H4999 the pastures H4057 of the wilderness, H3852 and the flame H3857 [H8765] hath burned H6086 all the trees H7704 of the field.
