Joel 1:5-7 New Century Version (NCV)

Drunks, wake up and cry!
    All you people who drink wine, cry!
Cry because your wine
    has been taken away from your mouths.
A powerful nation has come into my land
    with too many soldiers to count.
It has teeth like a lion,
    jaws like a female lion.
It has made my grapevine a waste
    and made my fig tree a stump.
It has stripped all the bark off my trees
    and left the branches white.

Joel 1:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

Wake up, you drunkards, and weep!
    Wail, all you drinkers of wine;
wail because of the new wine,
    for it has been snatched from your lips.
A nation has invaded my land,
    a mighty army without number;
it has the teeth of a lion,
    the fangs of a lioness.
It has laid waste my vines
    and ruined my fig trees.
It has stripped off their bark
    and thrown it away,
    leaving their branches white.
