Joel 2:18-25

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

18 Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, And will have compassion for His people. 19 The LORD will answer and say to His people, 'Behold, I am going to send you grain, new wine, and oil, And you will be satisfied in full with them; And I will never again make you a disgrace among the nations. 20 But I will remove the northern army far from you, And I will drive it into a dry and desolate land, Its advance guard into the eastern sea, And its rear guard into the western sea. And its stench will ascend and its odor of decay will come up, Because it has done great things.' 21 Do not fear, land; shout for joy and rejoice, For the LORD has done great things. 22 Do not fear, animals of the field, For the pastures of the wilderness have turned green, For the tree has produced its fruit, The fig tree and the vine have yielded in full. 23 So shout for joy, you sons of Zion, And rejoice in the LORD your God; For He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has brought down for you the rain, The early and latter rain as before. 24 The threshing floors will be full of grain, And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil. 25 'Then I will compensate you for the years That the swarming locust has eaten, The creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust— My great army which I sent among you.
King James Version

Chapter 2

18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. 19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: 20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things. 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. 22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. 23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 2

18 Then the Lord became jealous for his land and spared his people.
19 The Lord answered his people: Look, I am about to send you grain, new wine, and fresh oil. You will be satiated with them, and I will no longer make you a disgrace among the nations.
20 I will drive the northerner far from you and banish him to a dry and desolate land, his front ranks into the Dead Sea, and his rear guard into the Mediterranean Sea. His stench will rise; yes, his rotten smell will rise, for he has done astonishing things. 21 Don't be afraid, land; rejoice and be glad, for the Lord has done astonishing things. 22 Don't be afraid, wild animals, for the wilderness pastures have turned green, the trees bear their fruit, and the fig tree and grapevine yield their riches. 23 Children of Zion, rejoice and be glad in the Lord your God, because he gives you the autumn rain for your vindication. He sends showers for you, both autumn and spring rain as before.
24 The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with new wine and fresh oil. 25 I will repay you for the years that the swarming locust ate, the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust -- my great army that I sent against you.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

18 Then the LORD will pity his people and jealously guard the honor of his land. 19 The LORD will reply, 'Look! I am sending you grain and new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy your needs. You will no longer be an object of mockery among the surrounding nations.
20 I will drive away these armies from the north. I will send them into the parched wastelands. Those in the front will be driven into the Dead Sea, and those at the rear into the Mediterranean. The stench of their rotting bodies will rise over the land.' Surely the LORD has done great things! 21 Don't be afraid, my people. Be glad now and rejoice, for the LORD has done great things. 22 Don't be afraid, you animals of the field, for the wilderness pastures will soon be green. The trees will again be filled with fruit; fig trees and grapevines will be loaded down once more. 23 Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the LORD your God! For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring. 24 The threshing floors will again be piled high with grain, and the presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil.
25 The LORD says, 'I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you.

Chapter 2

18 Then the LORD became jealous for his land and had pity on his people. 19 The LORD answered and said to his people, “Behold, I am sending to you grain, wine, and oil, and you will be satisfied; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations. 20 “I will remove the northerner far from you, and drive him into a parched and desolate land, his vanguard into the eastern sea, and his rear guard into the western sea; the stench and foul smell of him will rise, for he has done great things. 21 “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the LORD has done great things! 22 Fear not, you beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness are green; the tree bears its fruit; the fig tree and vine give their full yield. 23 “Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before. 24 “The threshing floors shall be full of grain; the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you.
New International Version

Chapter 2

18 Then the LORD was jealous for his land and took pity on his people.
19 The LORD replied to them: 'I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations.
20 I will drive the northern horde far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land; its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea. And its stench will go up; its smell will rise.' Surely he has done great things! 21 Do not be afraid, land of Judah; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has done great things! 22 Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. 23 Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25 I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten-- the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm -- my great army that I sent among you.

Chapter 2

18 Entonces el SEÑOR se llenará de celo por su tierra, y tendrá piedad de su pueblo. 19 El SEÑOR responderá, y dirá a su pueblo: He aquí, yo os enviaré grano, mosto y aceite, y os saciaréis de ello, y nunca más os entregaré al oprobio entre las naciones. 20 Al ejército del norte lo alejaré de vosotros y lo echaré a una tierra árida y desolada, su vanguardia hacia el mar oriental, y su retaguardia hacia el mar occidental. Y ascenderá su hedor y subirá su fetidez, porque ha hecho terribles cosas.
21 No temas, oh tierra, regocíjate y alégrate, porque el SEÑOR ha hecho grandes cosas. 22 No temáis, bestias del campo, porque los pastos del desierto han reverdecido, porque el árbol ha dado su fruto, la higuera y la vid han producido en abundancia. 23 Hijos de Sion, regocijaos y alegraos en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios ; porque El os ha dado la lluvia temprana para vuestra vindicación, y ha hecho descender para vosotros la lluvia, la lluvia temprana y la tardía como en el principio. 24 Y las eras se llenarán de grano, y las tinajas rebosarán de mosto y de aceite virgen. 25 Entonces os compensaré por los años que ha comido la langosta, el pulgón, el saltón y la oruga, mi gran ejército, que envié contra vosotros.

Chapter 2

18 Entonces el SEÑOR mostró amor por su tierra y perdonó a su pueblo.
19 Y les respondió el SEÑOR: «Miren, les enviaré cereales, vino nuevo y aceite, hasta dejarlos plenamente satisfechos; y no volveré a entregarlos al oprobio entre las naciones.
20 »Alejaré de ustedes al que viene del norte, arrojándolo hacia una tierra seca y desolada: lanzaré su vanguardia hacia el mar oriental, y su retaguardia hacia el mar occidental. Subirá su hedor y se elevará su fetidez». ¡El Señor hará grandes cosas! 21 No temas, tierra, sino alégrate y regocíjate, porque el SEÑOR hará grandes cosas. 22 No teman, animales del campo, porque los pastizales de la estepa reverdecerán; los árboles producirán su fruto, y la higuera y la vid darán su riqueza. 23 Alégrense, hijos de Sión, regocíjense en el SEÑOR su Dios, que a su tiempo les dará las lluvias de otoño. Les enviará la lluvia, la de otoño y la de primavera, como en tiempos pasados. 24 Las eras se llenarán de grano; los lagares rebosarán de vino nuevo y de aceite. 25 «Yo les compensaré a ustedes por los años en que todo lo devoró ese gran ejército de langostas que envié contra ustedes: las grandes, las pequeñas, las larvas y las orugas.

Chapter 2

18 Y Jehová, solícito por su tierra, perdonará a su pueblo. 19 Responderá Jehová, y dirá a su pueblo: He aquí yo os envío pan, mosto y aceite, y seréis saciados de ellos; y nunca más os pondré en oprobio entre las naciones. 20 Y haré alejar de vosotros al del norte, y lo echaré en tierra seca y desierta; su faz será hacia el mar oriental, y su fin al mar occidental; y exhalará su hedor, y subirá su pudrición, porque hizo grandes cosas.
21 Tierra, no temas; alégrate y gózate, porque Jehová hará grandes cosas. 22 Animales del campo, no temáis; porque los pastos del desierto reverdecerán, porque los árboles llevarán su fruto, la higuera y la vid darán sus frutos. 23 Vosotros también, hijos de Sion, alegraos y gozaos en Jehová vuestro Dios; porque os ha dado la primera lluvia a su tiempo, y hará descender sobre vosotros lluvia temprana y tardía como al principio. 24 Las eras se llenarán de trigo, y los lagares rebosarán de vino y aceite. 25 Y os restituiré los años que comió la oruga, el saltón, el revoltón y la langosta, mi gran ejército que envié contra vosotros.
