Original text and translations
Joel 2, 21-24, 26; A.V.
Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.
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.
Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God.
The floors shall be full of wheat.
And ye shall eat in plenty, and praise the Name of the Lord your God. that hath dealt wondrously with you.
