Context
The Invasion of Locusts

1The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. 2Hear this, you old men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land. Has this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? 3Tell you your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. 4That which the palmerworm has left has the locust eaten; and that which the locust has left has the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm has left has the caterpillar eaten. 5Awake, you drunkards, and weep; and howl, all you drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. 6For a nation is come up on my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the cheek teeth of a great lion. 7He has laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he has made it clean bore, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
