Joel 2:15–17

15 bBlow the 6trumpet in Zion,

Call a sacred assembly;

16 Gather the people,

dSanctify the congregation,

Assemble the elders,

Gather the children and nursing babes;

eLet the bridegroom go out from his chamber,

And the bride from her dressing room.

17 Let the priests, who minister to the Lord,

Weep fbetween the porch and the altar;

And do not give Your heritage to reproach,

That the nations should 7rule over them.

hWhy should they say among the peoples,

‘Where is their God?’ ”
