Joel 1:13-15 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

13 Put on sackcloth, you priests, and lament.
    Wail, you who minister in front of the altar.
    Come, spend the night in sackcloth,
    you who minister before my God,
    because the grain offerings and drink offerings
    are being held back from the house of your God.

14 Set aside a day of fasting. Call a solemn convocation.
    Summon the elders and everyone who lives in the land
    to come to the house of the Lord your God.
    Cry out to the Lord!

Announcement of the Day of the Lord

15 How terrible that day will be!
    Yes, the Day of the Lord is near.
    It will come like destruction from the Almighty.[a]


  1. Joel 1:15 In Hebrew the words destruction and Almighty have a similar sound and create a play on words.
