Joel 3:16-18 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

16 The Lord will roar from Zion,
    and his voice will thunder from Jerusalem.
        The sky and the earth will shake.
The Lord will be a refuge for his people.
He will be a stronghold for the people of Israel.

17 “You will know that I am the Lord your God.
    I live on my holy mountain, Zion.
        Jerusalem will be holy.
            Foreigners will never invade it again.
18 On that day new wine will cover the mountains.
    Milk will flow on the hills.
    Water will flow in all the brooks of Judah.
    A spring will flow from the Lord’s temple.
        It will water the valley of Shittim.
