Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:1 - Blow a trumpet in Zion,
And sound an alarm on My holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
For the day of the LORD is coming;
Surely it is near,

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:2 - A day of darkness and gloom,
A day of clouds and thick darkness.
As the dawn is spread over the mountains,
So there is a great and mighty people;
There has never been anything like it,
Nor will there be again after it
To the years of many generations.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:3 - A fire consumes before them
And behind them a flame burns.
The land is like the garden of Eden before them
But a desolate wilderness behind them,
And nothing at all escapes them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:4 - Their appearance is like the appearance of horses;
And like war horses, so they run.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:5 - [fn]With a noise as of chariots
They leap on the tops of the mountains,
Like the [fn]crackling of a flame of fire consuming the stubble,
Like a mighty people arranged for battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:6 - Before them the people are in anguish;
All faces [fn]turn pale.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:7 - They run like mighty men,
They climb the wall like soldiers;
And they each march [fn]in line,
Nor do they deviate from their paths.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:8 - They do not crowd each other,
They march everyone in his path;
When they [fn]burst through the [fn]defenses,
They do not break ranks.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:9 - They rush on the city,
They run on the wall;
They climb into the houses,
They enter through the windows like a thief.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:10 - Before them the earth quakes,
The heavens tremble,
The sun and the moon grow dark
And the stars lose their brightness.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:11 - The LORD utters His voice before His army;
Surely His camp is very great,
For strong is he who carries out His word.
The day of the LORD is indeed great and very awesome,
And who can endure it?

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:12 - “Yet even now,” declares the LORD,
“Return to Me with all your heart,
And with fasting, weeping and mourning;

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:13 - And rend your heart and not your garments.”
Now return to the LORD your God,
For He is gracious and compassionate,
Slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness
And relenting of evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:14 - Who knows whether He will not turn and relent
And leave a blessing behind Him,
Even a grain offering and a drink offering
For the LORD your God?

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:15 - Blow a trumpet in Zion,
Consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly,

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:16 - Gather the people, sanctify the congregation,
Assemble the elders,
Gather the children and the nursing infants.
Let the bridegroom come out of his room
And the bride out of her bridal chamber.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:17 - Let the priests, the LORDS ministers,
Weep between the porch and the altar,
And let them say, “Spare Your people, O LORD,
And do not make Your inheritance a reproach,
A byword among the nations.
Why should they among the peoples say,
‘Where is their God?’”

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:18 - Then the LORD [fn]will be zealous for His land
And [fn]will have pity on His people.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:19 - The LORD [fn]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 [fn]them;
And I will never again make you a reproach among the nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:20 - “But I will remove the northern army 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 arise and its foul smell will come up,
For it has done great things.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:21 - Do not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad,
For the LORD has done great things.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:22 - 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 [fn]in full.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:23 - So rejoice, O sons of Zion,
And be glad in the LORD your God;
For He has given you [fn]the early rain for your vindication.
And He has poured down for you the rain,
The [fn]early and [fn]latter rain [fn]as before.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:24 - The threshing floors will be full of grain,
And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:25 - “Then I will make up to you for the years
That the swarming locust has eaten,
The creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:26 - “You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied
And praise the name of the LORD your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
Then My people will never be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:27 - “Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am the LORD your God,
And there is no other;
And My people will never be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:28 - [fn]It will come about after this
That I will pour out My Spirit on all [fn]mankind;
And your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:29 - “Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:30 - “I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth,
Blood, fire and columns of smoke.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:31 - “The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood
Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJoe 2:32 - “And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Will be delivered;
For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
There will be those who escape,
As the LORD has said,
Even among the survivors whom the LORD calls.
