Joel 1:9

Context

1:9 No one brings grain offerings or drink offerings

to the temple 1  of the Lord anymore. 2 

So the priests, those who serve the Lord, are in mourning.

Joel 1:13

Context

1:13 Get dressed 3  and lament, you priests!

Wail, you who minister at the altar!

Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you servants of my God,

because no one brings grain offerings or drink offerings

to the temple of your God anymore. 4 

1 tn Heb “house.” So also in vv. 13, 14, 16.

2 tn Heb “grain offering and drink offering are cut off from the house of the Lord,”

3 tn Heb “put on.” There is no object present in the Hebrew text, but many translations assume “sackcloth” to be the understood object of the verb “put on.” Its absence in the Hebrew text of v. 13 is probably due to metrical considerations. The meter here is 3 + 3, and that has probably influenced the prophet’s choice of words.

4 tn Heb “for grain offering and drink offering are withheld from the house of your God.”
