Joel 2:1-11

Blow
<08628> (8798)
ye the trumpet
<07782>
in Zion
<06726>_,
and sound an alarm
<07321> (8685)
in my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_:
let all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the land
<0776>
tremble
<07264> (8799)_:
for the day
<03117>
of the LORD
<03068>
cometh
<0935> (8804)_,
for [it is] nigh at hand
<07138>_;
{trumpet: or, cornet}
A day
<03117>
of darkness
<02822>
and of gloominess
<0653>_,
a day
<03117>
of clouds
<06051>
and of thick darkness
<06205>_,
as the morning
<07837>
spread
<06566> (8803)
upon the mountains
<02022>_:
a great
<07227>
people
<05971>
and a strong
<06099>_;
there hath not been
<01961> (8738)
ever
<05769>
the like, neither shall be any more
<03254> (8686)
after
<0310>
it, [even] to the years
<08141>
of many
<01755>
generations
<01755>_.
{of many...: Heb. of generation and generation}
A fire
<0784>
devoureth
<0398> (8804)
before
<06440>
them; and behind
<0310>
them a flame
<03852>
burneth
<03857> (8762)_:
the land
<0776>
[is] as the garden
<01588>
of Eden
<05731>
before
<06440>
them, and behind
<0310>
them a desolate
<08077>
wilderness
<04057>_;
yea, and nothing shall escape
<06413>
them.
The appearance
<04758>
of them [is] as the appearance
<04758>
of horses
<05483>_;
and as horsemen
<06571>_,
so shall they run
<07323> (8799)_.
Like the noise
<06963>
of chariots
<04818>
on the tops
<07218>
of mountains
<02022>
shall they leap
<07540> (8762)_,
like the noise
<06963>
of a flame
<03851>
of fire
<0784>
that devoureth
<0398> (8802)
the stubble
<07179>_,
as a strong
<06099>
people
<05971>
set in battle
<04421>
array
<06186> (8803)_.
Before their face
<06440>
the people
<05971>
shall be much pained
<02342> (8799)_:
all faces
<06440>
shall gather
<06908> (8765)
blackness
<06289>_.
{blackness: Heb. pot}
They shall run
<07323> (8799)
like mighty men
<01368>_;
they shall climb
<05927> (8799)
the wall
<02346>
like men
<0582>
of war
<04421>_;
and they shall march
<03212> (8799)
every one
<0376>
on his ways
<01870>_,
and they shall not break
<05670> (8762)
their ranks
<0734>_:
Neither shall one
<0376>
thrust
<01766> (8799)
another
<0251>_;
they shall walk
<03212> (8799)
every one
<01397>
in his path
<04546>_:
and [when] they fall
<05307> (8799)
upon the sword
<07973>_,
they shall not be wounded
<01214> (8799)_.
{sword: or, dart}
They shall run to and fro
<08264> (8799)
in the city
<05892>_;
they shall run
<07323> (8799)
upon the wall
<02346>_,
they shall climb up
<05927> (8799)
upon the houses
<01004>_;
they shall enter in
<0935> (8799)
at the windows
<02474>
like a thief
<01590>_.
The earth
<0776>
shall quake
<07264> (8804)
before
<06440>
them; the heavens
<08064>
shall tremble
<07493> (8804)_:
the sun
<08121>
and the moon
<03394>
shall be dark
<06937> (8804)_,
and the stars
<03556>
shall withdraw
<0622> (8804)
their shining
<05051>_:
And the LORD
<03068>
shall utter
<05414> (8804)
his voice
<06963>
before
<06440>
his army
<02428>_:
for his camp
<04264>
[is] very
<03966>
great
<07227>_:
for [he is] strong
<06099>
that executeth
<06213> (8802)
his word
<01697>_:
for the day
<03117>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] great
<01419>
and very
<03966>
terrible
<03372> (8737)_;
and who can abide
<03557> (8686)
it?
