Yahweh’s word that came to Joel, the son of Pethuel.
Hear this, you elders, And listen, all you inhabitants of the land. Has this ever happened in your days, or in the days of your fathers?
Tell your children about it, and have your children tell their children, and their children, another generation.
What the swarming locust has left, the great locust has eaten.
What the great locust has left, the grasshopper has eaten.
What the grasshopper has left, the caterpillar has eaten. Wake up, you drunkards, and weep!
Wail, all you drinkers of wine, because of the sweet wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.
