the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
 Let the priests, the ministers
of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and
give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say
among the people, Where is their God?
 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his
 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine,
and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate,
with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come
up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
 Fear not, O land; be glad
and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of
the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former
rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain
in the first month.
 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and
 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller,
and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be
satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people
shall never be ashamed.
 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD
your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
 And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old
men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
 And also upon the servants and upon
the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in
the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon
into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
 And it shall come to pass, that
whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem
shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
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.
 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.
 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 recompence me, swiftly and
speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
 Because ye have taken my silver and
my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
 The children also of Judah
and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their
 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence
upon your own head:
 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.
ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let
them come up:
 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak
say, I am strong.
 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together
round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
 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.
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.
 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is
near in the valley of decision.
 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw
 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
 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.
 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
