Bible: Joel 2:1-2

The Locusts’ Devastation

2:1 Blow the trumpet 1  in Zion;

sound the alarm signal on my holy mountain!

Let all the inhabitants of the land shake with fear,

for the day of the Lord is about to come.

Indeed, 2  it is near! 3 

2:2 It will be 4  a day of dreadful darkness, 5 

a day of foreboding storm clouds, 6 

like blackness 7  spread over the mountains.

It is a huge and powerful army 8 

there has never been anything like it ever before,

and there will not be anything like it for many generations to come! 9
