Joel 3 ©
God's judgments against the enemies of his people: his blessing upon the church.
I will also cgather all nations, and will bring them down into the dvalley of Jehoshaphat, and will eplead with them there ffor my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Yea, and hwhat have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the *coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, iswiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
The LORD also shall zroar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and athe heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the 7hope of his people, and the bstrength of the children of Israel.
So cshall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, dmy holy mountain: ethen shall Jerusalem be 8holy, and there shall fno strangers pass through her any more.
¶And it shall come to pass gin that day, that the hmountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and iall the rivers of Judah shall 9flow with waters, and ja fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the kvalley of Shittim.
lEgypt shall be a desolation, and mEdom shall be a desolate wilderness, for nthe violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
