Joel 1:18-20 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
18 How the beasts groan!
The herds of cattle are perplexed
because there is no pasture for them;
even the flocks of sheep are dismayed.
19 Unto thee, O Lord, I cry.
For fire has devoured
the pastures of the wilderness,
and flame has burned
all the trees of the field.
20 Even the wild beasts cry to thee
because the water brooks are dried up,
and fire has devoured
the pastures of the wilderness.
