Joel 3:9-16

9Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war, stir up the warriors. Let all the soldiers draw near, let them come up. 10Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, “I am a warrior.” 11Come quickly, all you nations all around, gather yourselves there. Bring down your warriors, O Lord. 12Let the nations rouse themselves, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the neighboring nations. 13Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the wine press is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. 14Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. 15The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. 16The Lord roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shake. But the Lord is a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.
