Bible: Joel 3:17-21

The Lord’s Presence in Zion

3:17 You will be convinced 1  that I the Lord am your God,

dwelling on Zion, my holy mountain.

Jerusalem 2  will be holy

conquering armies 3  will no longer pass through it.

3:18 On that day 4  the mountains will drip with sweet wine, 5 

and the hills will flow with milk. 6 

All the dry stream beds 7  of Judah will flow with water.

A spring will flow out from the temple 8  of the Lord,

watering the Valley of Acacia Trees. 9 

3:19 Egypt will be desolate

and Edom will be a desolate wilderness,

because of the violence they did to the people of Judah, 10 

in whose land they shed innocent blood.

3:20 But Judah will reside securely forever,

and Jerusalem will be secure 11  from one generation to the next.

3:21 I will avenge 12  their blood which I had not previously acquitted.

It is the Lord who dwells in Zion!
