Bible: Joel 3:1-4

The Lord Plans to Judge the Nations

3:1 1  For look! In those 2  days and at that time

I will return the exiles 3  to Judah and Jerusalem. 4 

3:2 Then I will gather all the nations,

and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. 5 

I will enter into judgment 6  against them there

concerning my people Israel who are my inheritance, 7 

whom they scattered among the nations.

They partitioned my land,

3:3 and they cast lots for my people.

They traded 8  a boy for a prostitute;

they sold a little girl for wine so they could drink. 9 

3:4 Why are you doing these things to me, Tyre and Sidon? 10 

Are you trying to get even with me, land of Philistia? 11 

I will very quickly repay you for what you have done! 12
