Then all of Judah brought the tithe of the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil to the storerooms.
I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and multiply it; I will not bring a famine on you.
Yet 1 until now 2 she has refused to acknowledge 3 that I 4 was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil; and that it was I who 5 lavished on her the silver and gold – which they 6 used in worshiping Baal! 7
then the ground will respond to the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil; and they will respond to ‘God Plants’ (Jezreel)! 1
The Israelites and the Levites will bring the contribution of the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil to the storerooms where the utensils of the sanctuary are kept, and where the priests who minister stay, along with the gatekeepers and the singers. We will not neglect the temple of our God.”
He made for himself a large storeroom where previously they had been keeping 1 the grain offering, the incense, and the vessels, along with the tithes of the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil as commanded for the Levites, the singers, the gate keepers, and the offering for the priests.
The Lord responded 1 to his people, “Look! I am about to restore your grain 2 as well as fresh wine and olive oil. You will be fully satisfied. 3 I will never again make you an object of mockery among the nations.
Moreover, I have called for a drought that will affect the fields, the hill country, the grain, new wine, fresh olive oil, and everything that grows from the ground; it also will harm people, animals, and everything they produce.’” 1
