Joel 1

Joel, declaring sundry judgments of God, exhorteth to observe them,

Joel 1:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. Joel 1:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? Joel 1:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Tell ye your children of it, and [let] your children [tell] their children, and their children another generation. Joel 1:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Joel 1:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. Joel 1:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth [are] the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. Joel 1:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast [it] away; the branches thereof are made white.

and to mourn.

Joel 1:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth. Joel 1:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD's ministers, mourn. Joel 1:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. Joel 1:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished. Joel 1:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The 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 joy is withered away from the sons of men. Joel 1:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Gird 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 withheld from the house of your God.

He prescribeth a fast for complaint.

Joel 1:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders [and] all the inhabitants of the land [into] the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD, Joel 1:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD [is] at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. Joel 1:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, [yea], joy and gladness from the house of our God? Joel 1:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered. Joel 1:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. Joel 1:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. Joel 1:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
