Joel 2


1  Blow8628 ye the trumpet7782 in Zion,6726 and sound an alarm7321 in my holy6944 mountain:2022 let all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the land776 tremble:7264 for3588 the day3117 of the LORD3068 cometh,935 for3588 it is nigh at hand;7138

2  A day3117 of darkness2822 and of gloominess,653 a day3117 of clouds6051 and of thick darkness,6205 as the morning7837 spread6566 upon5921 the mountains:2022 a great7227 people5971 and a strong;6099 there hath not3808 been1961 ever4480 5769 the like,3644 neither3808 shall be any more3254 after310 it, even to5704 the years8141 of many generations.1755 1755

3  A fire784 devoureth398 before6440 them; and behind310 them a flame3852 burneth:3857 the land776 is as the garden1588 of Eden5731 before6440 them, and behind310 them a desolate8077 wilderness;4057 yea,1571 and nothing3808 shall escape1961 6413 them.

4  The appearance4758 of them is as the appearance4758 of horses;5483 and as horsemen,6571 so3651 shall they run.7323

5  Like the noise6963 of chariots4818 on5921 the tops7218 of mountains2022 shall they leap,7540 like the noise6963 of a flame3851 of fire784 that devoureth398 the stubble,7179 as a strong6099 people5971 set in battle array.6186 4421

6  Before their face4480 6440 the people5971 shall be much pained:2342 all3605 faces6440 shall gather6908 blackness.6289

7  They shall run7323 like mighty men;1368 they shall climb5927 the wall2346 like men376 of war;4421 and they shall march1980 every one376 on his ways,1870 and they shall not3808 break5670 their ranks:734

8  Neither3808 shall one376 thrust1766 another;251 they shall walk1980 every one1397 in his path:4546 and when they fall5307 upon1157 the sword,7973 they shall not3808 be wounded.1214

9  They shall run to and fro8264 in the city;5892 they shall run7323 upon the wall,2346 they shall climb up5927 upon the houses;1004 they shall enter in935 at1157 the windows2474 like a thief.1590

10  The earth776 shall quake7264 before6440 them; the heavens8064 shall tremble:7493 the sun8121 and the moon3394 shall be dark,6937 and the stars3556 shall withdraw622 their shining:5051

11  And the LORD3068 shall utter5414 his voice6963 before6440 his army:2428 for3588 his camp4264 is very3966 great:7227 for3588 he is strong6099 that executeth6213 his word:1697 for3588 the day3117 of the LORD3068 is great1419 and very3966 terrible;3372 and who4310 can abide3557 it?

12  Therefore also1571 now,6258 saith5002 the LORD,3068 turn7725 ye even to5704 me with all3605 your heart,3824 and with fasting,6685 and with weeping,1065 and with mourning:4553

13  And rend7167 your heart,3824 and not408 your garments,899 and turn7725 unto413 the LORD3068 your God:430 for3588 he1931 is gracious2587 and merciful,7349 slow750 to anger,639 and of great7227 kindness,2617 and repenteth5162 him of5921 the evil.7451

14  Who4310 knoweth3045 if he will return7725 and repent,5162 and leave7604 a blessing1293 behind310 him; even a meat offering4503 and a drink offering5262 unto the LORD3068 your God?430

15  Blow8628 the trumpet7782 in Zion,6726 sanctify6942 a fast,6685 call7121 a solemn assembly:6116

16  Gather622 the people,5971 sanctify6942 the congregation,6951 assemble6908 the elders,2205 gather622 the children,5768 and those that suck3243 the breasts:7699 let the bridegroom2860 go forth3318 of his chamber,4480 2315 and the bride3618 out of her closet.4480 2646

17  Let the priests,3548 the ministers8334 of the LORD,3068 weep1058 between996 the porch197 and the altar,4196 and let them say,559 Spare2347 5921 thy people,5971 O LORD,3068 and give5414 not408 thine heritage5159 to reproach,2781 that the heathen1471 should rule4910 over them: wherefore4100 should they say559 among the people,5971 Where346 is their God?430

18  Then will the LORD3068 be jealous7065 for his land,776 and pity2550 5921 his people.5971

19  Yea, the LORD3068 will answer6030 and say559 unto his people,5971 Behold,2009 I will send7971 you 853 corn,1715 and wine,8492 and oil,3323 and ye shall be satisfied7646 therewith:854 and I will no3808 more5750 make5414 you a reproach2781 among the heathen:1471

20  But I will remove far off7368 from4480 5921 you the northern6830 army, and will drive5080 him into413 a land776 barren6723 and desolate,8077 with854 his face6440 toward413 the east6931 sea,3220 and his hinder part5490 toward413 the utmost314 sea,3220 and his stink889 shall come up,5927 and his ill savor6709 shall come up,5927 because3588 he hath done6213 great things.1431

21  Fear3372 not,408 O land;127 be glad1523 and rejoice:8055 for3588 the LORD3068 will do6213 great things.1431

22  Be not afraid,3372 408 ye beasts929 of the field:7704 for3588 the pastures4999 of the wilderness4057 do spring,1876 for3588 the tree6086 beareth5375 her fruit,6529 the fig tree8384 and the vine1612 do yield5414 their strength.2428

23  Be glad1523 then, ye children1121 of Zion,6726 and rejoice8055 in the LORD3068 your God:430 for3588 he hath given5414 you 853 the former rain4175 moderately,6666 and he will cause to come down3381 for you the rain,1653 the former rain,4175 and the latter rain4456 in the first7223 month.

24  And the floors1637 shall be full4390 of wheat,1250 and the fats3342 shall overflow7783 with wine8492 and oil.3323

25  And I will restore7999 to you 853 the years8141 that834 the locust697 hath eaten,398 the cankerworm,3218 and the caterpillar,2625 and the palmerworm,1501 my great1419 army2428 which834 I sent7971 among you.

26  And ye shall eat in plenty,398 398 and be satisfied,7646 and praise1984 853 the name8034 of the LORD3068 your God,430 that834 hath dealt6213 wondrously6381 with5973 you: and my people5971 shall never3808 5769 be ashamed.954

27  And ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am in the midst7130 of Israel,3478 and that I589 am the LORD3068 your God,430 and none369 else:5750 and my people5971 shall never3808 5769 be ashamed.954

28  And it shall come to pass1961 afterward,310 3651 that I will pour out8210 853 my spirit7307 upon5921 all3605 flesh;1320 and your sons1121 and your daughters1323 shall prophesy,5012 your old men2205 shall dream2492 dreams,2472 your young men970 shall see7200 visions:2384

29  And also1571 upon5921 the servants5650 and upon5921 the handmaids8198 in those1992 days3117 will I pour out8210 853 my spirit.7307

30  And I will show5414 wonders4159 in the heavens8064 and in the earth,776 blood,1818 and fire,784 and pillars8490 of smoke.6227

31  The sun8121 shall be turned2015 into darkness,2822 and the moon3394 into blood,1818 before6440 the great1419 and the terrible3372 day3117 of the LORD3068 come.935

32  And it shall come to pass,1961 that whosoever3605 834 shall call7121 on the name8034 of the LORD3068 shall be delivered:4422 for3588 in mount2022 Zion6726 and in Jerusalem3389 shall be1961 deliverance,6413 as834 the LORD3068 hath said,559 and in the remnant8300 whom834 the LORD3068 shall call.7121


1 σαλπίσατε σάλπιγγι ἐν Σιων κηρύξατε ἐν ὄρει ἁγίῳ μου καὶ συγχυθήτωσαν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν διότι πάρεστιν ἡμέρα κυρίου ὅτι ἐγγύς

2 ἡμέρα σκότους καὶ γνόφου ἡμέρα νεφέλης καὶ ὁμίχλης ὡς ὄρθρος χυθήσεται ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη λαὸς πολὺς καὶ ἰσχυρός ὅμοιος αὐτῷ οὐ γέγονεν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτὸν οὐ προστεθήσεται ἕως ἐτῶν εἰς γενεὰς γενεῶν

3 τὰ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ πῦρ ἀναλίσκον καὶ τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἀναπτομένη φλόξ ὡς παράδεισος τρυφῆς ἡ γῆ πρὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ὄπισθεν αὐτοῦ πεδίον ἀφανισμοῦ καὶ ἀνασῳζόμενος οὐκ ἔσται αὐτῷ

4 ὡς ὅρασις ἵππων ἡ ὄψις αὐτῶν καὶ ὡς ἱππεῖς οὕτως καταδιώξονται

5 ὡς φωνὴ ἁρμάτων ἐπὶ τὰς κορυφὰς τῶν ὀρέων ἐξαλοῦνται καὶ ὡς φωνὴ φλογὸς πυρὸς κατεσθιούσης καλάμην καὶ ὡς λαὸς πολὺς καὶ ἰσχυρὸς παρατασσόμενος εἰς πόλεμον

6 ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ συντριβήσονται λαοί πᾶν πρόσωπον ὡς πρόσκαυμα χύτρας

7 ὡς μαχηταὶ δραμοῦνται καὶ ὡς ἄνδρες πολεμισταὶ ἀναβήσονται ἐπὶ τὰ τείχη καὶ ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ αὐτοῦ πορεύσεται καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκκλίνωσιν τὰς τρίβους αὐτῶν

8 καὶ ἕκαστος ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀφέξεται καταβαρυνόμενοι ἐν τοῖς ὅπλοις αὐτῶν πορεύσονται καὶ ἐν τοῖς βέλεσιν αὐτῶν πεσοῦνται καὶ οὐ μὴ συντελεσθῶσιν

9 τῆς πόλεως ἐπιλήμψονται καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν τειχέων δραμοῦνται καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς οἰκίας ἀναβήσονται καὶ διὰ θυρίδων εἰσελεύσονται ὡς κλέπται

10 πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν συγχυθήσεται ἡ γῆ καὶ σεισθήσεται ὁ οὐρανός ὁ ἥλιος καὶ ἡ σελήνη συσκοτάσουσιν καὶ τὰ ἄστρα δύσουσιν τὸ φέγγος αὐτῶν

11 καὶ κύριος δώσει φωνὴν αὐτοῦ πρὸ προσώπου δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ ὅτι πολλή ἐστιν σφόδρα ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἰσχυρὰ ἔργα λόγων αὐτοῦ διότι μεγάλη ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου μεγάλη καὶ ἐπιφανὴς σφόδρα καὶ τίς ἔσται ἱκανὸς αὐτῇ

12 καὶ νῦν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐπιστράφητε πρός με ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ ἐν νηστείᾳ καὶ ἐν κλαυθμῷ καὶ ἐν κοπετῷ

13 καὶ διαρρήξατε τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ τὰ ἱμάτια ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπιστράφητε πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν ὅτι ἐλεήμων καὶ οἰκτίρμων ἐστίν μακρόθυμος καὶ πολυέλεος καὶ μετανοῶν ἐπὶ ταῖς κακίαις

14 τίς οἶδεν εἰ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ μετανοήσει καὶ ὑπολείψεται ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εὐλογίαν θυσίαν καὶ σπονδὴν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν

15 σαλπίσατε σάλπιγγι ἐν Σιων ἁγιάσατε νηστείαν κηρύξατε θεραπείαν

16 συναγάγετε λαόν ἁγιάσατε ἐκκλησίαν ἐκλέξασθε πρεσβυτέρους συναγάγετε νήπια θηλάζοντα μαστούς ἐξελθάτω νυμφίος ἐκ τοῦ κοιτῶνος αὐτοῦ καὶ νύμφη ἐκ τοῦ παστοῦ αὐτῆς

17 ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς κρηπῖδος τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κλαύσονται οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ λειτουργοῦντες κυρίῳ καὶ ἐροῦσιν φεῖσαι κύριε τοῦ λαοῦ σου καὶ μὴ δῷς τὴν κληρονομίαν σου εἰς ὄνειδος τοῦ κατάρξαι αὐτῶν ἔθνη ὅπως μὴ εἴπωσιν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ θεὸς αὐτῶν

18 καὶ ἐζήλωσεν κύριος τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐφείσατο τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ

19 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη κύριος καὶ εἶπεν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐξαποστέλλω ὑμῖν τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὸν οἶνον καὶ τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεσθε αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ δώσω ὑμᾶς οὐκέτι εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι

20 καὶ τὸν ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἐκδιώξω ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐξώσω αὐτὸν εἰς γῆν ἄνυδρον καὶ ἀφανιῶ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν πρώτην καὶ τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν ἐσχάτην καὶ ἀναβήσεται ἡ σαπρία αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναβήσεται ὁ βρόμος αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ

21 θάρσει γῆ χαῖρε καὶ εὐφραίνου ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν κύριος τοῦ ποιῆσαι

22 θαρσεῖτε κτήνη τοῦ πεδίου ὅτι βεβλάστηκεν πεδία τῆς ἐρήμου ὅτι ξύλον ἤνεγκεν τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ ἄμπελος καὶ συκῆ ἔδωκαν τὴν ἰσχὺν αὐτῶν

23 καὶ τὰ τέκνα Σιων χαίρετε καὶ εὐφραίνεσθε ἐπὶ τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν διότι ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν τὰ βρώματα εἰς δικαιοσύνην καὶ βρέξει ὑμῖν ὑετὸν πρόιμον καὶ ὄψιμον καθὼς ἔμπροσθεν

24 καὶ πλησθήσονται αἱ ἅλωνες σίτου καὶ ὑπερεκχυθήσονται αἱ ληνοὶ οἴνου καὶ ἐλαίου

25 καὶ ἀνταποδώσω ὑμῖν ἀντὶ τῶν ἐτῶν ὧν κατέφαγεν ἡ ἀκρὶς καὶ ὁ βροῦχος καὶ ἡ ἐρυσίβη καὶ ἡ κάμπη ἡ δύναμίς μου ἡ μεγάλη ἣν ἐξαπέστειλα εἰς ὑμᾶς

26 καὶ φάγεσθε ἐσθίοντες καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεσθε καὶ αἰνέσετε τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ἃ ἐποίησεν μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν εἰς θαυμάσια καὶ οὐ μὴ καταισχυνθῇ ὁ λαός μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

27 καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐ μὴ καταισχυνθῶσιν οὐκέτι πᾶς ὁ λαός μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

1 [Canite tuba in Sion,
ululate in monte sancto meo,
conturbentur omnes habitatores terræ:
quia venit dies Domini, quia prope est.

2 Dies tenebrarum et caliginis,
dies nubis et turbinis;
quasi mane expansum super montes
populus multus et fortis:
similis ei non fuit a principio,
et post eum non erit
usque in annos generationis et generationis.

3 Ante faciem ejus ignis vorans,
et post eum exurens flamma.
Quasi hortus voluptatis terra coram eo,
et post eum solitudo deserti,
neque est qui effugiat eum.

4 Quasi aspectus equorum, aspectus eorum;
et quasi equites, sic current.

5 Sicut sonitus quadrigarum super capita montium exilient,
sicut sonitus flammæ ignis devorantis stipulam,
velut populus fortis præparatus ad prælium.

6 A facie ejus cruciabuntur populi;
omnes vultus redigentur in ollam.

7 Sicut fortes current;
quasi viri bellatores ascendent murum:
viri in viis suis gradientur,
et non declinabunt a semitis suis.

8 Unusquisque fratrem suum non coarctabit,
singuli in calle suo ambulabunt;
sed et per fenestras cadent, et non demolientur.

9 Urbem ingredientur, in muro current,
domos conscendent, per fenestras intrabunt quasi fur.

10 A facie ejus contremuit terra,
moti sunt cæli,
sol et luna obtenebrati sunt,
et stellæ retraxerunt splendorem suum.

11 Et Dominus dedit vocem suam ante faciem exercitus sui,
quia multa sunt nimis castra ejus,
quia fortia et facientia verbum ejus:
magnus enim dies Domini, et terribilis valde,
et quis sustinebit eum?

12 Nunc ergo, dicit Dominus,
convertimini ad me in toto corde vestro,
in jejunio, et in fletu, et in planctu.

13 Et scindite corda vestra, et non vestimenta vestra;
et convertimini ad Dominum Deum vestrum,
quia benignus et misericors est,
patiens et multæ misericordiæ,
et præstabilis super malitia.

14 Quis scit si convertatur, et ignoscat,
et relinquat post se benedictionem, sacrificium et libamen Domino Deo vestro?

15 Canite tuba in Sion,
sanctificate jejunium, vocate cœtum:

16 congregate populum, sanctificate ecclesiam,
coadunate senes, congregate parvulos, et sugentes ubera;
egrediatur sponsus de cubili suo,
et sponsa de thalamo suo.

17 Inter vestibulum et altare plorabunt sacerdotes, ministri Domini,
et dicent: Parce, Domine, parce populo tuo;
et ne des hæreditatem tuam in opprobrium,
ut dominentur eis nationes.
Quare dicunt in populis: Ubi est Deus eorum?]

18 [Zelatus est Dominus terram suam,
et pepercit populo suo.

19 Et respondit Dominus, et dixit populo suo:
Ecce ego mittam vobis frumentum, et vinum, et oleum,
et replebimini eis;
et non dabo vos ultra opprobrium in gentibus.

20 Et eum qui ab aquilone est procul faciam a vobis,
et expellam eum in terram inviam et desertam:
faciem ejus contra mare orientale,
et extremum ejus ad mare novissimum:
et ascendet fœtor ejus,
et ascendet putredo ejus,
quia superbe egit.

21 Noli timere, terra:
exsulta, et lætare,
quoniam magnificavit Dominus ut faceret.

22 Nolite timere, animalia regionis,
quia germinaverunt speciosa deserti;
quia lignum attulit fructum suum,
ficus et vinea dederunt virtutem suam.

23 Et, filii Sion, exsultate,
et lætamini in Domino Deo vestro,
quia dedit vobis doctorem justitiæ,
et descendere faciet ad vos imbrem matutinum et serotinum,
sicut in principio.

24 Et implebuntur areæ frumento,
et redundabunt torcularia vino et oleo.

25 Et reddam vobis annos, quos comedit locusta,
bruchus, et rubigo, et eruca:
fortitudo mea magna quam misi in vos.

26 Et comedetis vescentes, et saturabimini;
et laudabitis nomen Domini Dei vestri,
qui fecit mirabilia vobiscum;
et non confundetur populus meus in sempiternum.

27 Et scietis quia in medio Israël ego sum,
et ego Dominus Deus vester, et non est amplius;
et non confundetur populus meus in æternum.]

28 [Et erit post hæc:
effundam spiritum meum super omnem carnem,
et prophetabunt filii vestri et filiæ vestræ:
senes vestri somnia somniabunt,
et juvenes vestri visiones videbunt.

29 Sed et super servos meos et ancillas
in diebus illis effundam spiritum meum.

30 Et dabo prodigia in cælo et in terra,
sanguinem, et ignem, et vaporem fumi.

31 Sol convertetur in tenebras,
et luna in sanguinem,
antequam veniat dies Domini magnus et horribilis.

32 Et erit: omnis qui invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit:
quia in monte Sion et in Jerusalem
erit salvatio, sicut dixit Dominus,
et in residuis quos Dominus vocaverit.]
