Joel 2:13-16

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

13 And tear your heart and not merely your garments.' Now return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, abounding in mercy And relenting of catastrophe. 14 Who knows, He might turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him, Resulting in a grain offering and a drink offering For the LORD your God. 15 Blow a trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly, 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants. Have the groom come out of his room And the bride out of her bridal chamber.
King James Version

Chapter 2

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 2

13 Tear your hearts, not just your clothes, and return to the Lord your God. For he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and he relents from sending disaster.
14 Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave a blessing behind him, so you can offer a grain offering and a drink offering to the Lord your God. 15 Blow the ram's horn in Zion! Announce a sacred fast; proclaim a solemn assembly. 16 Gather the people; sanctify the congregation; assemble the aged; gather the infants, even babies nursing at the breast. Let the groom leave his bedroom, and the bride her honeymoon chamber.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

13 Don't tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.' Return to the LORD your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. 14 Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the LORD your God as before.
15 Blow the ram's horn in Jerusalem! Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting. 16 Gather all the people--the elders, the children, and even the babies. Call the bridegroom from his quarters and the bride from her private room.
English Standard Version

Consecrate the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even nursing infants. Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber.

Chapter 2

13 Rasgad vuestro corazón y no vuestros vestidos ; volved ahora al SEÑOR vuestro Dios, porque El es compasivo y clemente, lento para la ira, abundante en misericordia, y se arrepiente de infligir el mal. 14 ¿Quién sabe si volverá y se apiadará, y dejará tras sí bendición, es decir, ofrenda de cereal y libación para el SEÑOR vuestro Dios? 15 Tocad trompeta en Sion, promulgad ayuno, convocad asamblea, 16 reunid al pueblo, santificad la asamblea, congregad a los ancianos, reunid a los pequeños y a los niños de pecho. Salga el novio de su aposento y la novia de su alcoba.

Chapter 2

13 Rásguense el corazón y no las vestiduras. Vuélvanse al SEÑOR su Dios, porque él es bondadoso y compasivo, lento para la ira y lleno de amor, cambia de parecer y no castiga. 14 Tal vez Dios reconsidere y cambie de parecer, y deje tras de sí una bendición. Las ofrendas de cereales y las libaciones son del SEÑOR su Dios.
15 Toquen la trompeta en Sión, proclamen el ayuno, convoquen a una asamblea solemne. 16 Congreguen al pueblo, purifiquen la asamblea; junten a los ancianos del pueblo, reúnan a los pequeños y a los niños de pecho. Que salga de su alcoba el recién casado, y la recién casada de su cámara nupcial.
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 2

13 Rasgad vuestro corazón, y no vuestros vestidos, y convertíos a Jehová vuestro Dios; porque misericordioso es y clemente, tardo para la ira y grande en misericordia, y que se duele del castigo. 14 ¿Quién sabe si volverá y se arrepentirá y dejará bendición tras de él, esto es, ofrenda y libación para Jehová vuestro Dios?
15 Tocad trompeta en Sion, proclamad ayuno, convocad asamblea. 16 Reunid al pueblo, santificad la reunión, juntad a los ancianos, congregad a los niños y a los que maman, salga de su cámara el novio, y de su tálamo la novia.
Biblia del Jubileo
