Bible: Joel 2:23-27

2:23 Citizens of Zion, 1  rejoice!

Be glad because of what the Lord your God has done! 2 

For he has given to you the early rains 3  as vindication.

He has sent 4  to you the rains

both the early and the late rains 5  as formerly.

2:24 The threshing floors are full of grain;

the vats overflow with fresh wine and olive oil.

2:25 I will make up for the years 6 

that the ‘arbeh-locust 7  consumed your crops 8 

the yeleq-locust, the hasil-locust, and the gazam-locust –

my great army 9  that I sent against you.

2:26 You will have plenty to eat,

and your hunger will be fully satisfied; 10 

you will praise the name of the Lord your God,

who has acted wondrously in your behalf.

My people will never again be put to shame.

2:27 You will be convinced that I am in the midst of Israel.

I am the Lord your God; there is no other.

My people will never again be put to shame.
