Joel 1:8-10 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
8 Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth
for the bridegroom of her youth.
9 The cereal offering and the drink offering are cut off
from the house of the Lord.
The priests mourn,
the ministers of the Lord.
10 The fields are laid waste,
the ground mourns;
because the grain is destroyed,
the wine fails,
the oil languishes.
