Joel 3:9 - 3:16

Call out this message among the nations:
Set yourselves apart for a war; rouse the mighty men!
Let all the men of war approach, let them come up!
Beat your plowshares into swords
And your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, “I am a mighty man.”
Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations,
And gather yourselves.
There, bring down, O Yahweh, Your mighty ones.
Let the nations be roused up
And come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat,
For there I will sit to judge
All the surrounding nations.
Send in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.
Come, tread, for the wine press is full;
The vats overflow, for their evil is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of Yahweh is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and moon grow dark,
And the stars lose their brightness.
And Yahweh roars from Zion
And gives forth His voice from Jerusalem,
And the heavens and the earth quake.
But Yahweh is a refuge for His people
And a strong defense to the sons of Israel.
