New International Version
25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts(A) have eaten(B)—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm[a]—
my great army(C) that I sent among you.
26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,(D)
and you will praise(E) the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders(F) for you;
never again will my people be shamed.(G)
27 Then you will know(H) that I am in Israel,
that I am the Lord(I) your God,
and that there is no other;
never again will my people be shamed.(J)
- Joel 2:25 The precise meaning of the four Hebrew words used here for locusts is uncertain.
