Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:1 - Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of Jehovah cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:2 - a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as the dawn spread upon the mountains; a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after them, even to the years of many generations.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:3 - A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and none hath escaped them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:4 - The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so do they run.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:5 - Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains do they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:6 - At their presence the peoples are in anguish; all faces are waxed pale.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:7 - They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war; and they march every one on his ways, and they break not their ranks.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:8 - Neither doth one thrust another; they march every one in his path; and they burst through the weapons, and break not off their course.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:11 - And Jehovah uttereth his voice before his army; for his camp is very great; for he is strong that executeth his word; for the day of Jehovah is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:12 - Yet even now, saith Jehovah, turn ye unto me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:13 - and rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto Jehovah your God; for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:14 - Who knoweth whether he will not turn and repent, and leave a blessing behind him, even a meal-offering and a drink-offering unto Jehovah your God?

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:15 - Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly;

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:16 - gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:17 - Let the priests, the ministers of Jehovah, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Jehovah, and give not thy heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the peoples, Where is their God?

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:18 - Then was Jehovah jealous for his land, and had pity on his people.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:19 - And Jehovah answered and said unto his people, Behold, I will send you grain, and new wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations;

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:20 - but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, its forepart into the eastern sea, and its hinder part into the western sea; and its stench shall come up, and its ill savor shall come up, because it hath done great things.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:21 - Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice; for Jehovah hath done great things.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:22 - Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field; for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth its fruit, the fig-tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:23 - Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Jehovah your God; for he giveth you the former rain in just measure, and he causeth to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, in the first month.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:24 - And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:25 - And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm, and the caterpillar, and the palmer-worm, my great army which I sent among you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:29 - and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:30 - And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:31 - The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Jehovah cometh.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:32 - And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Jehovah shall be delivered; for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as Jehovah hath said, and among the remnant those whom Jehovah doth call.
