Joel 1 - KJV

1 The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.

The plague of insects

2 Hear this, ye old men, And give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. ch. 2:2Hath this been in your days, Or even in the days of your fathers?

3 Ps. 78:4Tell ye your children of it, And let your children tell their children, And their children another generation.

4 Deut. 28:38[a]That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; And that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; And that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten.

5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; And howl, all ye drinkers of wine, Because of the new wine, Is. 32:10for it is cut off from your mouth.

6 For Prov. 30:23a nation is come up upon my land, Strong, and without number, Rev. 9:8Whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, And he hath the cheek-teeth of a great lion.

7 He hath Is. 5:6laid my vine waste, And [b]barked my fig tree: He hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; The branches thereof are made white.

8 Is. 22:12Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for Prov. 2:17;Jer. 3:4the husband of her youth.

9 ch. 2:14The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the Lord; The priests, the Lord's ministers, mourn.

10 The field is wasted, Jer. 12:11the land mourneth; For the corn is wasted, Is. 24:7the new wine is [c]dried up, the oil languisheth.

11 Jer. 14:3,4Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, For the wheat and for the barley; Because the harvest of the field is perished.

12 ver. 10The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; The pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, Even all the trees of the field, are withered: Because Is. 24:11;Jer. 48:33joy is withered away from the sons of men.

13 Jer. 4:8Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: Howl, ye ministers of the altar: Come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God; For the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

14 2 Chr. 20:3Sanctify ye a fast, call Lev. 23:36a [d]solemn assembly, Gather the elders and 2 Chr. 20:13all the inhabitants of the land Into the house of the Lord your God, And cry unto the Lord,

15 Jer. 30:7Alas for the day! for Is. 13:6,9the day of the Lord is at hand, And as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, Yea, See Deut. 12:6,7joy and gladness from the house of our God?

17 The [e]seed is rotten under their clods, The garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; For the corn is withered.

18 How do Hos. 4:3the beasts groan! The herds of cattle are perplexed, Because they have no pasture; Yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.

19 O Lord, Ps. 50:15to thee will I cry: For Jer. 9:10the fire hath devoured the [f]pastures of the wilderness, And the flame hath burnt all the trees of the field.

20 The beasts of the field Job 38:41;Ps. 104:21cry also unto thee: For 1 Ki. 17:7the rivers of waters are dried up, And the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

21 -20 The coming day of the Lord
