Joel 1 New International Version (NIV)

1 The word of the Lord that came to Joel son of Pethuel.

An Invasion of Locusts
2 Hear this, you elders;
listen, all who live in the land.
Has anything like this ever happened in your days
or in the days of your ancestors?
3 Tell it to your children,
and let your children tell it to their children,
and their children to the next generation.
4 What the locust swarm has left
the great locusts have eaten;
what the great locusts have left
the young locusts have eaten;
what the young locusts have left
other locusts[a] have eaten.

5 Wake up, you drunkards, and weep!
Wail, all you drinkers of wine;
wail because of the new wine,
for it has been snatched from your lips.
6 A nation has invaded my land,
a mighty army without number;
it has the teeth of a lion,
the fangs of a lioness.
7 It has laid waste my vines
and ruined my fig trees.
It has stripped off their bark
and thrown it away,
leaving their branches white.

8 Mourn like a virgin in sackcloth
grieving for the betrothed of her youth.
9 Grain offerings and drink offerings
are cut off from the house of the Lord.
The priests are in mourning,
those who minister before the Lord.
10 The fields are ruined,
the ground is dried up;
the grain is destroyed,
the new wine is dried up,
the olive oil fails.

11 Despair, you farmers,
wail, you vine growers;
grieve for the wheat and the barley,
because the harvest of the field is destroyed.
12 The vine is dried up
and the fig tree is withered;
the pomegranate, the palm and the apple[b] tree—
all the trees of the field—are dried up.
Surely the people’s joy
is withered away.

A Call to Lamentation
13 Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn;
wail, you who minister before the altar.
Come, spend the night in sackcloth,
you who minister before my God;
for the grain offerings and drink offerings
are withheld from the house of your God.
14 Declare a holy fast;
call a sacred assembly.
Summon the elders
and all who live in the land
to the house of the Lord your God,
and cry out to the Lord.

15 Alas for that day!
For the day of the Lord is near;
it will come like destruction from the Almighty.[c]

16 Has not the food been cut off
before our very eyes—
joy and gladness
from the house of our God?
17 The seeds are shriveled
beneath the clods.[d]
The storehouses are in ruins,
the granaries have been broken down,
for the grain has dried up.
18 How the cattle moan!
The herds mill about
because they have no pasture;
even the flocks of sheep are suffering.

19 To you, Lord, I call,
for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness
and flames have burned up all the trees of the field.
20 Even the wild animals pant for you;
the streams of water have dried up
and fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness.

Joel 1:4 The precise meaning of the four Hebrew words used here for locusts is uncertain.
Joel 1:12 Or possibly apricot
Joel 1:15 Hebrew Shaddai
Joel 1:17 The meaning of the Hebrew for this word is uncertain.

After My reading of Joel Chapter 1
I was inspired to write my new words of wisdom !
So my Inspired Wisdom now Shows

Title: After all the false witnesses came forth
I only seen the accusers being charged with treason of some sorts !

First there was Russian interferance
In the US elections of 2016,

Falsified testimony written down and passed around
As if it were the Gospel truth but later we the people
Found it was all lies bought and paid for
By the Hillary Clinton's campaign

Now since President Trump made a campaign promise
To drain The Potomac river of those who were unfit to serve
In the US Senate or in Congress by draining the swamp
Of the man eating parontas to cleans the old ways

Shine a new light, so shining bright The District of Columbia,
(The old beloved city Washington) Shall never be darkened
Again for only Liberty and Justice's for all will be the American way
May we live as one Nation Under God Forever And Forever, Amen

May there never come a time when US Congress will vote upon
An amendment to the Constitution of the United States
Allowing woman the right to abort a pregnancy at full term
God shall turn away from such a godless murdering nation

Such a nation shall always be living
In great fear of God's quick judgement
So in my prayer's may Our nation always
Praise The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, AMEN

Beware you 10 Presidential Candidates who raised a hand,
In support of passing an amendment for full term abortions
For you have brought great shame upon yourselves, plus our nation
Has been Bruised by your sad respect for life and the beauty of God's Creation !
