Joel 2:18 - 2:27

Yahweh Will Spare His People

Then Yahweh will be zealous for His land
And will spare His people.
Then Yahweh will answer and say to His people,
“Behold, I am going to send you grain, new wine, and oil,
And you will be satisfied in full with them;
And I will never again make you a reproach among the nations.
But I will remove the northern military force far from you,
And I will drive it into a parched and desolate land,
And its vanguard into the eastern sea,
And its rear guard into the western sea.
And its stench will rise up, and its foul smell will rise up,
For it has done great things.”

Do not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad,
For Yahweh has done great things.
Do not fear, beasts of the field,
For the pastures of the wilderness have turned green,
For the tree has borne its fruit;
The fig tree and the vine have yielded their full force.
So rejoice, O sons of Zion,
And be glad in Yahweh your God,
For He has given you the early rain in righteousness.
And He has poured down for you the rain,
The early and late rains as before.
The threshing floors will be full of grain,
And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.
“Then I will pay back to you in full for the years
That the swarming locust has consumed,
The creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust,
My great military force which I sent among you.
And you will have plenty to consume and be satisfied
And praise the name of Yahweh your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
Then My people will never be put to shame.
Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am Yahweh your God,
And there is no other;
And My people will never be put to shame.
