Isaiah 16:88 For the fields of Heshbon languish,
and a the vine of Sibmah;
the lords of the nations
have struck down its branches,
which reached to Jazer
and strayed to the desert;
its shoots spread abroad
and passed over the sea.
Isaiah 16:1010 b And joy and gladness are taken away from c the fruitful field,
and in the vineyards no d songs are sung,
no cheers are raised;
no e treader treads out wine f in the presses;
I have put an end to the shouting.
Complacent Women Warned of Disaster9 g Rise up, you women h who are at ease, hear my voice;
you complacent daughters, give ear to my speech.
10In little more than a year
you will shudder, you complacent women;
for the grape harvest fails,
the fruit harvest will not come.
11Tremble, you women i who are at ease,
shudder, you complacent ones;
j strip, and make yourselves bare,
k and tie sackcloth around your waist.
12 l Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields,
for the fruitful vine,
13 m for the soil of my people
growing up in thorns and briers,
n yes, for all the joyous houses
in the exultant city.
The Lord Will Punish Israel1 Rejoice not, O Israel!
Exult not like the peoples;
o for you have played the whore, forsaking your God.
p You have loved a prostitute’s wages
on all threshing floors.
2 q Threshing floor and wine vat shall not feed them,
and r the new wine shall fail them.
Joel 1:10-1210The fields are destroyed,
s the ground mourns,
because t the grain is destroyed,
u the wine dries up,
the oil languishes.
11 v Be ashamed, ▼
▼The Hebrew words for dry up and be ashamed in verses 10–12, 17 sound alikeO tillers of the soil;
wail, O vinedressers,
for the wheat and the barley,
x because the harvest of the field has perished.
12The vine dries up;
y the fig tree languishes.
Pomegranate, palm, and apple,
all the trees of the field are dried up,
and z gladness dries up
from the children of man.
