A Call to Repentance

12 “Now, therefore,” says the Lord,
(A)“Turn to Me with all your heart,
With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
13 So (B)rend your heart, and not (C)your garments;
Return to the Lord your God,
For He is (D)gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.

The Land Refreshed(A)

18 Then the Lord will (B)be zealous for His land,
And pity His people.
19 The Lord will answer and say to His people,
“Behold, I will send you (C)grain and new wine and oil,
And you will be satisfied by them;
I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

God’s Spirit Poured Out

28 “And(A) it shall come to pass afterward
That (B)I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
(C)Your sons and your (D)daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My (E)menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

30 “And (F)I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
31 (G)The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
(H)Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
32 And it shall come to pass
That (I)whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be [a]saved.
For (J)in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be [b]deliverance,
As the Lord has said,
Among (K)the remnant whom the Lord calls.
