Promise of the Ruach Adonai

“So it will be afterward,[a]
I will pour out My Ruach on all flesh:[b]
your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
“Also on the male and the female servants
will I pour out My spirit in those days.[c]
I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth—
blood, fire and pillars of smoke.[d]
The sun will be turned into darkness
and the moon into blood, before the great and awesome day of Adonai comes.
Then all who call on Adonai’s Name[e] will escape,
for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
there will be rescue, as Adonai has said,
    among the survivors whom Adonai is calling.”
