1:1 The word of the Lord which came to Joel the son of Bathuel.

Invasion of the locusts and caterpillars

1:2 Hear these words, ye elders,
And hearken all ye that inhabit the land.
Have such things happen in your days,
Or in the days of your fathers?

1:3 Tell your children concerning them,
And let your children tell their children,
And their children another generation.

1:4 The leavings of the caterpillar hath the locust eaten,
And the leavings of the locust hath the palmerworm eaten,
And the leavings of the palmerworm hath the cankerworm eaten.

1:5 Awake, ye drunkards, from your wine, and weep:
Mourn, all ye that drink wine to drunkenness:
For joy and gladness and removed are from your mouth.

1:6 For a strong and innumerable nation is come up against my land,
Their teeth are lion's teeth,
And their back teeth those of a lion's whelp.

1:7 He hath ruined my vine, and utterly broken my fig-trees:
He hath utterly searched my vine, and cast it down;
He hath peeled its branches.

1:8 Lament to me more than a virgin,
Girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

1:9 The food-offering and drink-offering are removed from the House of the Lord:
Mourn, ye priests that serve at the Altar of the Lord.

1:10 For the plains languish:
Let the land mourn, for the grain languishes;
The wine is dried up, the oil becomes scarce;

1:11 The husbandmen are consumed:
Mourn your property on account of the wheat and barley;
For the harvest hath perished from off the field.

1:12 The vine is dried up, and the fig-trees are become few;
The pomegranate, and palm-tree, and apple,
And all trees of the field are dried up:
For the sons of men have abolished joy.

1:13 Gird yourselves with sackcloth, and lament, ye priests:
Mourn, ye that serve at the Altar:
Go in, sleep in sackcloths, ye that serve God:
For the food-offering and drink-offering are withheld from the House of your God.

1:14 Sanctify a fast, proclaim a solemn service,
Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the House of your God,
And cry earnestly to the Lord,

1:15 Alas, Alas, Alas for the day!
For the day of the Lord is nigh,
And it will come as trouble upon trouble.

1:16 Your food hath been destroyed before your eyes,
Joy and gladness from out of the House of your God.

1:17 The heifers have started at their mangers,
The treasures are abolished,
The wine-presses are broken down;
For the grain is withered.

1:18 What shall we store up for ourselves?
The herds of cattle have mourned,
Because they had no pasture;
And the flocks of sheep have been utterly destroyed.

1:19 To thee, O Lord, will I cry:
For fire hath devoured the fair places of the wilderness,
And a flame hath burnt up all the trees of the field.
