Bible: Joel 1:9-11

1:9 No one brings grain offerings or drink offerings

to the temple 1  of the Lord anymore. 2 

So the priests, those who serve the Lord, are in mourning.

1:10 The crops of the fields 3  have been destroyed. 4 

The ground is in mourning because the grain has perished.

The fresh wine has dried up;

the olive oil languishes.

1:11 Be distressed, 5  farmers;

wail, vinedressers, over the wheat and the barley.

For the harvest of the field has perished.
