1 严重的蝗灾

2 老年人哪!你们要听这话。这地所有的居民啊!你们要留心听。在你们的日子,或在你们祖先的日子,曾有这样的事吗?

3 你们要把这事传与子,子传与孙,孙传与后代。

4 剪虫剩下的,蝗虫吃了;蝗虫剩下的,蝻子吃了;蝻子剩下的,蚂蚱吃了。

5 酒醉的人哪!你们要醒过来;要哀哭!所有嗜酒的人哪!你们都要为甜酒哀号,因为甜酒从你们的口里断绝了。

6 因为有一民族上来侵犯我的国土,他们强大又无数;他们的牙齿像狮子的牙齿,他们有母狮的大牙。

7 他们使我的葡萄树荒凉,折断了我的无花果树,把树皮剥尽,丢在一旁,使枝条露白。

8 劝人民哀哭你们要哀号,像少女腰束麻布,为她幼年时许配的丈夫哀号一样。

9 素祭和奠祭都从耶和华的殿里断绝了,事奉耶和华的祭司也都悲哀。

10 田野荒废,土地凄凉,因为五谷毁坏,新酒干竭,油也缺乏。

11 农夫啊!你们要为大麦和小麦羞愧。修理葡萄园的啊!你们要哀号,因为田间的庄稼都破坏了。

12 葡萄树枯干,无花果树衰残;石榴树、棕树、苹果树,田野所有的树木都枯干,因此欢乐从人间消失了。

13 呼吁人民禁食祷告祭司啊!你们要腰束麻布,并且痛哭。在祭坛侍候的啊!你们要哀号。事奉我的 神的啊!你们披上麻布进去过夜吧,因为素祭和奠祭,都从你们的 神的殿中止息了。

14 你们要把禁食的日子分别为圣,召开严肃会,聚集众长老和国中所有的居民,到你们的 神耶和华的殿里,向耶和华呼求。

15 哀哉那日!因为耶和华的日子临近了;那日来到,好像毁灭从全能者临到一样。

16 粮食不是在我们的眼前断绝了吗?欢喜与快乐不是从我们的 神的殿中止息了吗?

17 谷种在土块底下朽烂,仓库荒凉,谷仓破烂被拆毁,因为五谷都枯干了。

18 牲畜发出哀鸣,牛群到处流荡,因为没有草场给它们,羊群也同样受苦。

19 耶和华啊!我向你呼求,因为火吞灭了旷野的草场,火焰烧尽了田间所有的树木。

20 田野的走兽也向你发喘,因为溪水都干涸了,火吞灭了旷野的草场。

Chapter summary

Explanation of Joel 1 - Revised      

Joel Chapter 1, the Internal Sense.
From Swedenborg's work, "The Inner Meaning of the Prophets and Psalms"

(Verse 1) The Word has been perverted by false worship,

(2) when instead the Word should have been obeyed by everyone in the Church,

(3) and communicated to everyone who holds false beliefs that arise from evil loves.

(4) Instead, the spiritual things of the Church have been destroyed by sensualism.

(5) Now, remorse should be awakened, because of this loss of faith,

(6) a faith which has been destroyed by the lust of worshipping false gods,

(7) depriving the Church of spiritual truth and good.

(8) The Church should return to the Lord

(9) with inward mourning and contrition

(10) over the loss of good and truth in the natural and spiritual man -

(11) especially people who seek the good of the Church and who desire its genuine doctrine: for the Church is about to perish.

(12) Spiritual truth, its good, its knowledge, and its delights, which constitute the Church, are perverted.

(13) Only by repentance can communion with the Lord be renewed.

(14) The Church can only remove the evil and falsity by acknowledging and worshipping the Lord,

(15) for the end of the Church is near, when it will be judged.

(16) Good works are not being done, nor are there any people who delight in spiritual things.

(17) Natural good has been subordinated to evil, and the truth and good of the Word are rejected.

(18) Wherefore there is no good in the Church,

(19) and our hearts must be turned again to the Lord: for the love of self has corrupted all things in the church.

(20) Although truth is desired, it has been misappropriated to ourselves.
