Blow the trumpet in Zion ! Sanctify a fast. Call a solemn assembly.

Gather the people. Sanctify the assembly. Assemble the elders.

Gather the children, and those who nurse from breasts.

Let the bridegroom go out of his room, and the bride out of her room.

Let the priests, the ministers of Yahweh, weep between the porch and the altar,

and let them say, “Spare your people, Yahweh, and don’t give your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ ”

Then Yahweh was jealous for his land, And had pity on his people.
