Joel Chapter 2

, --, : - -, . 1 Blow ye the horn in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is at hand;
, , , -; , -- -, - . 2 A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as blackness spread upon the mountains; a great people and a mighty, there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after them, even to the years of many generations.
, ; - , , -, - . 3 A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame blazeth; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing escapeth them.
, ; , . 4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so do they run.
, - -- , ; , . 5 Like the noise of chariots, on the tops of the mountains do they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a mighty people set in battle array.
, ; -, . 6 At their presence the peoples are in anguish; all faces have gathered blackness.
, ; , . 7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; and they move on every one in his ways, and they entangle not their paths.
, ; , . 8 Neither doth one thrust another, they march every one in his highway; and they break through the weapons, and suffer no harm.
, --, ; , . 9 They leap upon the city, they run upon the wall, they climb up into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief.
, ; , . 10 Before them the earth quaketh, the heavens tremble; the sun and the moon are become black, and the stars withdraw their shining.
, -- , : - - , . 11 And the LORD uttereth His voice before His army; for His camp is very great, for he is mighty that executeth His word; for great is the day of the LORD and very terrible; and who can abide it?
-, -, , -; , . 12 Yet even now, saith the LORD, turn ye unto Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with lamentation;
-, - : - , -- -, -. 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God; for He is gracious and compassionate, long-suffering, and abundant in mercy, and repenteth Him of the evil.
, ; , -- , . {} 14 Who knoweth whether He will not turn and repent, and leave a blessing behind Him, even a meal-offering and a drink-offering unto the LORD your God? {P}
, ; -, . 15 Blow the horn in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly;
- , -- , : , . 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her pavilion.
, , , ; -, - - -- , . 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say: 'Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not Thy heritage to reproach, that the nations should make them a byword: wherefore should they say among the peoples: Where is their God?'
, ; , -. 18 Then was the LORD jealous for His land, and had pity on His people.
, - , , ; - , . 19 And the LORD answered and said unto His people: 'Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations;
- , - --- - , - ; , -- , . 20 But I will remove far off from you the northern one, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the eastern sea, and his hinder part toward the western sea; that his foulness may come up, and his ill savour may come up, because he hath done great things.'
-, ; , - . 21 Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice; for the LORD hath done great things.
- , : - , . 22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field; for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth its fruit, the fig-tree and the vine do yield their strength.
, , - -, ; , --. 23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God; for He giveth you the former rain in just measure, and He causeth to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, at the first.
, ; , . 24 And the floors shall be full of corn, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
, -, , : , , , . 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm, and the caterpiller, and the palmer-worm, My great army which I sent among you.
, , - , - ; - , . 26 And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and shall praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you; and My people shall never be ashamed.
, , , ; - , . {} 27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and there is none else; and My people shall never be ashamed. {P}
