Bible: Joel 1:4-7

1:4 What the gazam-locust left the ‘arbeh-locust consumed, 1 

what the ‘arbeh-locust left the yeleq-locust consumed,

and what the yeleq-locust left the hasil-locust consumed! 2 

1:5 Wake up, you drunkards, 3  and weep!

Wail, all you wine drinkers, 4 

because the sweet wine 5  has been taken away 6  from you. 7 

1:6 For a nation 8  has invaded 9  our 10  land.

There are so many of them they are too numerous to count. 11 

Their teeth are like those 12  of a lion;

they tear apart their prey like a lioness. 13 

1:7 They 14  have destroyed our 15  vines; 16 

they have turned our 17  fig trees into mere splinters.

They have completely stripped off the bark 18  and thrown them aside;

the 19  twigs are stripped bare. 20
