Joel 1:15-20


15 Alas for the day!
For the day of the Lord is near,
   and as destruction from the Almighty* it comes.
16 Is not the food cut off
   before our eyes,
joy and gladness
   from the house of our God?


17 The seed shrivels under the clods,*
   the storehouses are desolate;
the granaries are ruined
   because the grain has failed.
18 How the animals groan!
   The herds of cattle wander about
because there is no pasture for them;
   even the flocks of sheep are dazed.*


19 To you, O Lord, I cry.
For fire has devoured
   the pastures of the wilderness,
and flames have burned
   all the trees of the field.
20 Even the wild animals cry to you
   because the watercourses are dried up,
and fire has devoured
   the pastures of the wilderness.
