What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; And what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten; And what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten. (Joel 1:4)

Awake, drunkards, and weep; And wail, all you wine drinkers, On account of the sweet wine That is cut off from your mouth. (Joel 1:5)

For a nation has invaded my land, Mighty and without number; Its teeth are the teeth of a lion, And it has the fangs of a lioness. (Joel 1:6)

It has made my vine a waste And my fig tree splinters. It has stripped them bare and cast them away; Their branches have become white. (Joel 1:7)
