1 Die woord van die HERE wat tot Joël, die seun van Pétuel, gekom het.

2 Hoor dit, o oudstes, en luister, alle inwoners van die land! Het so iets ooit in julle dae of in die dae van julle vaders plaasgevind?

3 Vertel daarvan aan julle kinders, en julle kinders aan hulle kinders, en húlle kinders aan die volgende geslag:

4 Wat die afknyper laat oorbly het, het die treksprinkaan verslind; en wat die treksprinkaan laat oorbly het, het die voetganger verslind; en wat die voetganger laat oorbly het, het die kaalvreter verslind.

5 Word wakker, julle dronkaards, en ween! En huil, al julle wyndrinkers! Oor die mos, omdat dit van julle mond weggeruk is.

6 Want 'n sterk en ontelbare nasie het opgetrek oor my land; sy tande is leeutande, en dit kan byt soos 'n leeuin.

7 Dit het my wingerdstok verwoes en my vyeboom versplinter; dit het ál sy bas afgeskil en weggegooi; die lote daarvan het wit geword.

8 Weeklaag soos 'n jonkvrou wat oor die bruidegom van haar jeug met 'n roukleed omgord is.

9 Spysoffer en drankoffer is ontruk aan die huis van die HERE; die priesters, die dienaars van die HERE, treur.

10 Die veld is verwoes, die akkerland treur; want die koring is verwoes, die mos het weggedroog, die olie het verdwyn.

11 Die landbouers staan beskaamd, die wynboere weeklaag oor die koring en oor die gars, omdat die oes op die land verlore is.

12 Die wingerdstok het verdor, en die vyeboom het verwelk; die granaat, ook die palm en die appelboom, al die bome van die land het verdor; want beskaamd is die vreugde, weg van die mensekinders af.

13 Omgord julle en klaag, o priesters! Huil, dienaars van die altaar! Kom, vernag in rouklere, dienaars van my God! Want die spysoffer en die drankoffer is geweer van die huis van julle God.

14 Heilig 'n vasdag, roep 'n vergadering saam! Versamel die oudstes, alle inwoners van die land in die huis van die HERE julle God, en roep tot die HERE.

15 Ag, die dag! Want naby is die dag van die HERE, en hy kom soos 'n verwoesting van die Almagtige.

16 Is die spys nie weggeruk voor ons nie, blydskap en gejuig weg uit die huis van onse God?

17 Die graankorrels het weggekrimp onder hulle kluite, die voorraadkamers is verwoes, die graanbakke afgebreek, want die koring het verdor.

18 Hoe sug die vee! Die troppe beeste is onrustig, want daar is geen weiveld vir hulle nie; ook die troppe kleinvee moet boet.

19 Tot U, o HERE, roep ek, want 'n vuur het die weivelde van die woestyn verteer, en 'n vlam het al die bome van die veld aan die brand gesteek.

20 Selfs die diere van die veld smag na U; want die waterstrome het opgedroog, en 'n vuur het die weivelde van die woestyn verteer.

Explanation of Joel 1 - Revised      

Napsal(a) J. E. Schreck

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.
