Bible: Joel 2:17-18

2:17 Let the priests, those who serve the Lord, weep

from the vestibule all the way back to the altar. 1 

Let them say, “Have pity, O Lord, on your people;

please do not turn over your inheritance to be mocked,

to become a proverb 2  among the nations.

Why should it be said 3  among the peoples,

Where is their God?

The Lord’s Response

2:18 Then the Lord became 4  zealous for his land;

he had compassion on his people.
