|約珥書-Joel 第 3 章|
For indeed, in those days and at that time When I turn the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather all the nations And will bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there Because of My people and My inheritance Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations. And they have divided My land
And have cast lots for My people; And they have given a boy for a prostitute And sold a girl for wine to drink.
Indeed then, what are you to me, Tyre and Sidon And all the regions of Philistia? Will you repay Me with a recompense? But if you recompense Me, Swiftly, speedily, I will return your recompense upon your own head.
In that you have taken My silver and My gold, And have brought My fine precious things into your temples,
And have sold to the children of the Javanim The children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem, In order to remove them Away from their borders;
I will rouse them out of the place To which you have sold them, And will return your recompense upon your own head.
And I will sell your sons and your daughters Into the hand of the children of Judah, And they will sell them to the Sabeans, To a nation that is far off, For Jehovah has spoken.
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare the battle; Rouse the mighty men; Let all the men of battle Draw near; let them go up.
Beat your plowshares into swords, And your pruning knives into spears; Let the weak say, I am mighty.
Hurry and come, All you surrounding nations, And be gathered. There cause Your mighty ones to descend, O Jehovah!
Let the nations rouse themselves and come up To the valley of Jehoshaphat. For there I will sit to judge All the surrounding nations.
Send forth the sickle, For the harvest is ripe; Come, tread, For the winepress is full; The wine vats overflow, For their evil is great.
Multitudes, multitudes, In the valley of decision; For the day of Jehovah has drawn near In the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon grow dark, And the stars withdraw their shining.
And Jehovah will roar from Zion, And from Jerusalem He will utter His voice, And the heavens and the earth will shake. But Jehovah will be a shelter to His people And a stronghold to the children of Israel.
Thus you will know that I am Jehovah your God, Dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. And Jerusalem will be holy, And strangers will pass through her no longer.
And in that day The mountains will drop down fresh wine, And the hills will flow with milk; And all the waterways of Judah Will flow with water, And a fountain will go forth from the house of Jehovah, And it will water the valley of Shittim.
Egypt will be a desolation, And Edom will be a desolate wilderness, Because of the violence against the children of Judah, In that they have shed innocent blood in their land.
But Judah will abide forever, And Jerusalem, from generation to generation;
And I will acquit them of their bloodshed that I had not acquitted them of, For Jehovah dwells in Zion.
