Joel 3:11-16New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
11 Come quickly, all you surrounding nations. Gather together in the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
Lord, send down your soldiers from heaven!
12 The Lord says,
“Stir up the nations into action! Let them march into the valley where I will judge them. I will take my seat in court. I will judge all the surrounding nations. 13 My soldiers, swing your blades. The nations are ripe for harvest. Come and stomp on them as if they were grapes. Crush them until the winepress of my anger is full. Do it until the wine spills over from the places where it is stored. The nations have committed far too many sins!”
14 Huge numbers of soldiers are gathered in the valley where the Lord will hand down his sentence. The day of the Lord is near in that valley. 15 The sun and moon will become dark. The stars won’t shine anymore. 16 The Lord will roar like a lion from Jerusalem. His voice will sound like thunder from Zion. The earth and the heavens will tremble. But the Lord will keep the people of Israel safe. He will be a place of safety for them.
