Joel 1:8-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Wail like a young woman[a] dressed in sackcloth
    for the husband of her youth.
Grain offering and libation are cut off
    from the house of the Lord;
In mourning are the priests,
    the ministers of the Lord.
10 The field is devastated;
    the farmland mourns,[b]
Because the grain is devastated,
    the wine has dried up,
    the oil has failed.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:8 Like a young woman: this simile personifies Jerusalem as a youthful widow, left unprotected and without resources by her husband’s sudden death.
  2. 1:10 The farmland mourns: or “the farmland is dried up.”
