Joel Chapter 3
3:1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring
again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the
valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and
for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and
parted my land.
3:3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an
harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
3:4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the
coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye
recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon
your own head;
3:5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into
your temples my goodly pleasant things:
3:6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye
sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
3:7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold
them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
3:8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the
children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people
far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
3:9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty
men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
3:10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears:
let the weak say, I am strong.
3:11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather
yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come
down, O LORD.
3:12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of
Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down;
for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of
the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
3:15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall
withdraw their shining.
3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from
Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will
be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
3:17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my
holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no
strangers pass through her any more.
3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall
drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the
rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth
out of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
3:19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate
wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they
have shed innocent blood in their land.
3:20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to
3:21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the
LORD dwelleth in Zion.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
