Joel Chapter 3   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, [gsn] [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   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; [gsn] [jfb]   5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: [jfb]   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. [jfb]   7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: [jfb]   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]. [gsn] [jfb]   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: [jfb]   10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong. [gsn] [jfb]   11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. [jfb]   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. [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision. [jfb]   15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   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 of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim. [gsn] [jfb]   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. [gsn] [jfb]   20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. [jfb]   21 For I will cleanse their blood [that] I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion. [gsn] [jfb]
