King James (English)
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and zlatter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God:
For he hath given you othe former rain moderately,
And he will cause to come down for you the rain,
The former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat,
And the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten,
The cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm,
My great army which I sent among you.
26 And uye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
That hath dealt wondrously with you:
And my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am the Lord your God, and none else:
And my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward,
That I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;
And cyour sons and dyour daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids
In those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth,
Blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and lthe moon into blood,
Before the great and nthe terrible day of the Lord come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered:
For qin mount Zion and in Jerusalem rshall be deliverance,
As the Lord hath said,
And in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

I will also gather all nations,
And will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat,
And will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Joe 3:2.
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles;
Prepare war, wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords,
And your pruninghooks into spears:
Let the weak say, I am strong.
11 cAssemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen,
And vgather yourselves together round about:
Thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat:
For there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe:
Come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow;
For their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of gdecision:
For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened,
And the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion,
And utter his voice from Jerusalem;
And the heavens and the earth shall shake:
But the Lord will be the hope of his people,
And the strength of the children of Israel.
