Joel 3:3


3:3 and they cast lots for my people.

They traded 1  a boy for a prostitute;

they sold a little girl for wine so they could drink. 2 

Joel 3:6


3:6 You sold Judeans and Jerusalemites to the Greeks,

removing them far from their own country. 3 

1 tn Heb “gave.”

2 sn Heb “and they drank.” Joel vividly refers to a situation where innocent human life has little value; its only worth is its use in somehow satisfying selfish appetites of wicked people who have control over others (cf. Amos 2:6 and 8:6).

3 tn Heb “border.”
