Joel 1:13–20

13  deGird yourselves, and dlament, ye priests:

dHowl, ye ministers of the altar:

Come, lie all night ein sackcloth, fye ministers of my God:

For fthe meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

14  gSanctify ye a fast, gcall a ||solemn assembly,

gGather hthe elders and hall the inhabitants of the land

Into the house of the Lord your God,

And cry unto the Lord,

15  Alas for the day! ifor the day of the Lord is at hand,

And as a jdestruction from kthe Almighty shall it come.

16  fIs not the meat cut off before our eyes,

Yea, ljoy and gladness ffrom the house of our God?

17  llThe seed is rotten under their clods,

The garners are laid desolate, mthe barns are broken down;

For the corn is ywithered.

18  nHow do the beasts groan!

The herds of cattle nnare perplexed,

Because they have no pasture;

Yea, the flocks of sheep oare made desolate.

19  O Lord, pto thee will I cry:

For qthe fire hath devoured rthe ||pastures of the wilderness,

And sthe flame hath burned all the trees of the field.

20  nThe beasts of the field tcry also unto thee:

For uthe rivers of waters vare dried up,

And qthe fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
