Joel 2:18–27

Deliverance Promised

18 Then the Lord 1will be azealous for His land

And 2will have bpity on His people.

19 The Lord 1will answer and say to His people,

“Behold, I am going to asend you grain, new wine and oil,

And you will be satisfied in full with 2them;

And I will bnever again make you a reproach among the nations.

20 “But I will remove the anorthern army far from you,

And I will drive it into a parched and desolate land,

And its vanguard into the beastern sea,

And its rear guard into the cwestern sea.

And its dstench will arise and its foul smell will come up,

For it has done great things.”

21 aDo not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad,

For the Lord has done bgreat things.

22 Do not fear, beasts of the field,

For the apastures of the wilderness have turned green,

For the tree has borne its fruit,

The fig tree and the vine have yielded 1in full.

23 So rejoice, O asons of Zion,

And bbe glad in the Lord your God;

For He has cgiven you 1the early rain for your vindication.

And He has poured down for you the rain,

The 2early and 3dlatter rain 4as before.

24 The threshing floors will be full of grain,

And the vats will aoverflow with the new wine and oil.

25 “Then I will make up to you for the years

That the swarming alocust has eaten,

The creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust,

My great army which I sent among you.

26 “You will have plenty to aeat and be satisfied

And bpraise the name of the Lord your God,

Who has cdealt wondrously with you;

Then My people will dnever be put to shame.

27 “Thus you will aknow that I am in the midst of Israel,

And that I am the Lord your God,

And there is bno other;

And My people will never be cput to shame.
