Joel 1:5-7 The Voice (VOICE)

These four locusts are probably not different species of insect. Joel is describing four different locust invasions and how each ravages the land.

All you drunks, get up and cry!
    Weep and wail, all of you wine drinkers.
Your sweet wine
    has been snatched from your mouths.

Eternal One: For a people invaded My land.
        Their army is strong; their numbers cannot be counted.
    They attack with teeth as sharp as a lion’s;
        they bare their fangs like a lioness.
    My vines are ruined.
        My fig trees are reduced to stumps now.
    These enemy insects have stripped off the bark and tossed My trees aside like refuse.
        The branches lie bare, broken and white.
