Joel 1

1:1 The word of the Lord that came to Joel, the son of Pethuel.
1:2 Listen to this, elders, and pay close attention, all inhabitants of the land. Did this ever happen in your days or in the days of your fathers?
1:3 Talk this over with your sons, and your sons with their sons, and their sons with another generation.
1:4 The locust has eaten what the caterpillar has left, and the beetle has eaten what the locust has left, and the mildew has eaten what the beetle has left.
1:5 Rouse yourselves, you drunkards, and weep and wail, all you who delight in drinking wine; for it has been cut off from your mouth.
1:6 For a nation has ascended over my land: strong and without number. His teeth are like the teeth of a lion, and his molars are like that of a lion’s young.
1:7 He has put my vineyard into desolation, and he has pulled off the bark of my fig tree. He has stripped it bare and cast it away; its branches have become white.
1:8 Lament like a betrothed virgin, wrapped in sackcloth at the loss of the husband of her youth.
1:9 Sacrifice and libation have perished from the house of the Lord; the priests who are ministers of the Lord have mourned.
1:10 The region has been depopulated, the soil has mourned. For the wheat has been devastated, the wine has been disfigured, the oil has languished.
1:11 The farmers have been confounded, the vineyard workers have wailed over the crop and the barley, because the harvest of the field has perished.
1:12 The vineyard is in ruin, and the fig tree has languished. The pomegranate tree, and the palm tree, and the fruit tree, and all the trees of the field have withered. For joy has been thrown into disorder before the sons of men.
1:13 Imam, mengikat diri dan meratap. Menteri-menteri mezbah-mezbah, meratap. Masukkan, menteri Allahku, terletak pada kain kabung. Korban dan persembahan anggur kpd dewa telah berlalu dari rumah Allahmu,.
1:14 Kuduskanlah yang cepat, memanggil perhimpunan, mengumpulkan para tua-tua dan seluruh penduduk negeri itu ke dalam rumah Allahmu,. Dan berseru kepada Tuhan:
1:15 "Ah, ah, ah, hari itu!"Untuk hari TUHAN sudah dekat, dan ia akan tiba, seperti kemusnahan yang, sebelum berkuasa.
1:16 Has not your nourishment perished from before your eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God?
1:17 The mules have rotted in their own manure, the barns have been demolished, the wine cellars have been destroyed, because the grain has been ruined.
1:18 Why have the animals groaned, the herds of cattle bellowed? because there is no pasture for them. Ya, and even the flocks of sheep have been lost.
1:19 kepada anda, O Tuhan, Aku akan berseru, because fire has devoured the beauty of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the countryside.
1:20 Ya, and even the beasts of the field have gazed up at you, like the dry ground thirsting for rain, because the fountains of waters have dried up, and fire has devoured the beauty of the wilderness.

Joel 2

2:1 Tiuplah sangkakala di Sion, meraung di atas gunung-Ku yang kudus, biarlah seluruh penduduk negeri itu terhasut. Untuk hari Tuhan adalah dalam perjalanan; untuk itu sudah dekat:
2:2 hari kegelapan dan kesuraman, hari berawan dan puting beliung. Seperti pagi sampai ke atas gunung, mereka adalah kaum yang banyak dan kuat. Tiada apa-apa seperti mereka telah wujud sejak awal, dan tidak akan wujud selepas mereka, walaupun pada tahun-tahun generasi demi generasi.
2:3 Before their face is a devouring fire, and behind them is a burning flame. The land before them is like a lush garden, and behind them is a desolate desert, and there is no one who can escape them.
2:4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and they will rush forward like horsemen.
2:5 Like the sound of a four-horse chariot, they will leap over the tops of the mountains. Like the sound of a burning flame devouring stubble, they are as a strong people prepared for battle.
2:6 Before their face, the people will be tortured; each one’s appearance will retreat, as if into a jar.
2:7 They will rush forward, as if they were strong. Like valiant warriors, they will ascend the wall. The men will advance, each one on his own way, and they will not turn aside from their path.
2:8 And each one will not hem in his brother; every one will walk in his own rough path. Lebih-lebih lagi, they will drop through the breach and not be harmed.
2:9 They will advance into the city; they will rush through the wall. They will scale the houses; they will go in through the windows, like a thief.
2:10 Before their face, the earth has trembled, the heavens have been moved. The sun and moon have been obscured, and the stars have retracted their splendor.
2:11 And the Lord has bestowed his voice before the face of his army. For its military camps are very numerous; for they are strong and they carry out his word. For the day of the Lord is great and so very terrible, and who can withstand it?
2:12 Sekarang, Oleh itu,, firman TUHAN: "Akan ditukar kepada saya dengan sepenuh hatimu, berpuasa dan menangis dan berkabung. "
2:13 Koyakkanlah hatimu, dan jangan pakaianmu, dan menukar kepada TUHAN, Allahmu,. Sebab Ia pengasih dan penyayang, pesakit dan penyayang, dan teguh walaupun benci.
2:14 Siapa tahu jika dia mungkin menukar dan mengampuni, dan mewariskan berkat selepasnya, korban dan persembahan anggur kpd dewa kepada TUHAN, Allahmu,?
2:15 Tiuplah sangkakala di Sion, menguduskan yang cepat, memanggil perhimpunan.
2:16 Kumpulkanlah bangsa, menguduskan gereja, menyatukan para tua-tua, berkumpul bersama-sama orang-orang yang sedikit dan bayi yang menyusu. Mari pengantin lelaki bertolak dari tempat tidurnya, dan pengantin perempuan itu dari ruang pengantin beliau.
2:17 Antara vestibule dan mezbah, para imam, menteri-menteri Tuhan, akan menangis, dan mereka akan berkata: "ganti, O Tuhan, ganti orang anda. Dan tidak mewariskan milik-Mu ke dalam kehinaan, agar bangsa-bangsa akan memerintah mereka. Mengapa orang berkata di antara bangsa-bangsa, Di mana Allah mereka?'"
2:18 Tuhan telah begitu giat membela negerinya, dan dia telah terlepas kaumnya.
2:19 Dan Tuhan balas, and he said to his people: "Sesungguhnya, I will send you grain and wine and oil, and you will again be filled with them. And I will no longer give you disgrace among the Gentiles.
2:20 And he who is from the North, I will drive far from you. And I will expel him into an impassable land, and into the desert, with his face opposite the Eastern sea, and his furthest part towards the furthest sea. And his stench will ascend, and his rottenness will ascend, because he has acted arrogantly.
2:21 Earth, jangan takut. Exult and rejoice. For the Lord has great esteem for what he has done.
2:22 Animals of the countryside, jangan takut. For the beauty of the wilderness has sprung forth. For the tree has borne its fruit. The fig tree and the vine have bestowed their virtue.
2:23 Dan awak, sons of Zion, exult and rejoice in the Lord your God. For he has given you a teacher of justice, and he will make the early and the late rains descend to you, just as it was in the beginning.
2:24 And the threshing floors will be filled with grain, and the presses will overflow with wine and oil.
2:25 And I will repay you for the years which the locust, and the beetle, and the mildew, and the caterpillar consumed: my great strength which I sent upon you.
2:26 And you will eat with enjoyment, and you will be satisfied, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked miracles with you, and my people will not be confounded forever.
2:27 And you will know that I am in the midst of Israel, and I am the Lord your God, dan tidak ada yang lain, and my people will not be confounded forever.
2:28 Dan selepas ini, it will happen that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy; your elders will dream dreams, and your youths will see visions.
2:29 Lebih-lebih lagi, in those days I will pour out my spirit upon my servants and handmaids.
2:30 And I will grant wonders in the sky and on earth: darah dan api dan gumpalan-gumpalan asap.
2:31 The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord shall arrive.
2:32 And it will happen that everyone who will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved. For on Mount Zion, dan di Yerusalem, and in the remnant whom the Lord will call, there will be salvation, just as the Lord has said.

Joel 3

3:1 Untuk, tiba-tiba, pada masa itu dan dalam masa itu, Aku akan telah ditukar buangan dari Yehuda dan Yerusalem,
3:2 Aku akan mengumpulkan segala bangsa-bangsa lain, dan akan membawa mereka ke lembah Yosafat. Dan di sana Aku akan mempertikaikan dengan mereka atas umat-Ku, dan atas Israel, milik-Ku sendiri, kerana mereka telah menghamburkan mereka di antara bangsa-bangsa dan dibahagikan tanah saya.
3:3 Dan mereka telah membuang undi atas umat-Ku; dan budak yang mereka telah diletakkan di dalam rumah pelacuran, dan perempuan yang telah dijual untuk wain, supaya mereka minum.
3:4 Sesungguhnya, apa yang ada antara aku dan kamu, Tirus dan Sidon dan semua tempat yang jauh di antara orang Filistin? Bagaimana anda membalas dendam kepada saya? Dan jika anda adalah untuk diri kamu membalas dendam terhadap saya, Saya akan menyampaikan pembayaran balik kepada anda, dengan cepat dan tidak lama lagi, atas kepala anda.
3:5 Bagi tuan yang mengambil perak dan emas saya. Dan saya wajar dan paling indah, anda telah mengambil tempat-tempat suci anda.
3:6 Dan awak, sons of Judah and sons of Jerusalem, you have sold the sons of the Greeks, so that you might drive them far from their own territory.
3:7 Sesungguhnya, I will raise them up from the place into which you have sold them, and I will turn back your retribution on your own head.
3:8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hands of the sons of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, a distant nation, sebab TUHAN telah dituturkan.
3:9 Proclaim this among the Gentiles: “Sanctify a war, raise up the strong. pendekatan, ascend, all men of war.
3:10 Cut your ploughs into swords and your hoes into spears. Let the weak say, ‘For I am strong.’
3:11 Keluar dan memajukan, semua bangsa di dunia, dan berkumpul bersama-sama. Di sanalah diberikan TUHAN akan menyebabkan semua orang-orang yang kuat untuk bertemu kematian. "
3:12 Biarlah mereka bangkit dan naik ke lembah Yosafat. Sebab di sana Aku akan duduk, supaya menghakimi semua bangsa di dunia.
3:13 Menghantar benda yang sabit, sebab musim menuai sudah matang. Memajukan dan turun, untuk akhbar penuh, bilik menekan melimpah. Untuk niat jahat mereka telah meningkat.
3:14 Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa, negara-negara di lembah dipotong kepada kepingan: untuk hari Tuhan padan sekali berlaku di Lembah dipotong kepada kepingan.
3:15 Matahari dan bulan telah gelap, dan bintang-bintang telah menarik balik kemegahan.
3:16 Dan TUHAN akan menengking dari Sion dan memperdengarkan suara-Nya dari Yerusalem. Dan langit dan bumi akan dipindahkan. Dan TUHAN akan menjadi harapan bagi bangsanya dan kekuatan orang Israel.
3:17 Dan kamu akan mengetahui bahwa Akulah TUHAN, Allahmu,, kediaman di Sion, gunung-Ku yang kudus. Dan Yerusalem akan menjadi kudus, dan orang yang tidak dikenali dan tidak akan menyeberangi melaluinya lagi.
3:18 Dan ia akan berlaku, pada hari itu, bahawa gunung akan menitis kemanisan, dan bukit-bukit akan mengalir dengan susu. Dan air akan melalui semua sungai-sungai di Yehuda. Dan mata air yang akan keluar dari rumah TUHAN, dan ia akan mengairi padang pasir duri.
3:19 Mesir akan menjadi dalam ketandusan, dan Edom akan padang gurun dimusnahkan, disebabkan apa yang mereka telah tidak adil dilakukan kepada anak-anak Yehuda, dan kerana mereka telah menumpahkan darah yang tidak bersalah di negeri mereka.
3:20 Dan Yudea lagi didiami orang, selama-lamanya, dan Yerusalem untuk generasi demi generasi.
3:21 Dan saya akan membersihkan darah mereka, yang saya telah tidak dibersihkan. Dan TUHAN akan kekal di Sion.
