Joel 3:17–21

Blessings for God’s People

17 “Then you will know that I, the Lord your God,

live in Zion, my holy mountain.

Jerusalem will be holy forever,

and foreign armies will never conquer her again.

18 In that day the mountains will drip with sweet wine,

and the hills will flow with milk.

Water will fill the streambeds of Judah,

and a fountain will burst forth from the Lord’s Temple,

watering the arid valley of acacias.*

19 But Egypt will become a wasteland

and Edom will become a wilderness,

because they attacked the people of Judah

and killed innocent people in their land.

20 “But Judah will be filled with people forever,

and Jerusalem will endure through all generations.

21 I will pardon my people’s crimes,

which I have not yet pardoned;

and I, the Lord, will make my home

in Jerusalem* with my people.”
