Joel 2:10-12 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
10 The earth quakes in their presence,
and the sky shakes.
The sun and the moon turn dark,
and the stars no longer shine.
11 The Lord shouts out orders to his army.
His forces are very large.
The troops that carry out his commands are mighty.
The day of the Lord is extremely terrifying.
Who can endure it?
The Lord Invites the People to Return to Him
12 “But even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart—
with fasting, crying, and mourning.”
