25 “So I will restore to you the years (A)that the swarming [a]locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
26 You shall (B)eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to (C)shame.
27 Then you shall know that I am (D)in the midst of Israel:
(E)I am the Lord your God
And there is no other.
My people shall never be put to shame.

God’s Spirit Poured Out

28 “And(F) it shall come to pass afterward
That (G)I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
(H)Your sons and your (I)daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My (J)menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

30 “And (K)I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
31 (L)The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
(M)Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
32 And it shall come to pass
That (N)whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be [b]saved.
For (O)in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be [c]deliverance,
As the Lord has said,
Among (P)the remnant whom the Lord calls.
