Rend Your Heart
Now, therefore,” says the LORD,
Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.
So rend your heart, and not your garments
Return to the LORD your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.
So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust,
The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.
You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the LORD your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.
And it shall come to pass afterward That
I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.
Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.
From Joel 2:12-32
