Joel 1:10; Psalm 4:7; Malachi 3:10-12

10  The fields are destroyed,

qthe ground mourns,

because rthe grain is destroyed,

rthe wine dries up,

the oil languishes.


You have put rmore joy in my heart

than they have when their grain and wine abound.


10 aBring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby bput me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open cthe windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. 11 I will rebuke dthe devourer1 for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. 12 Then eall nations will call you blessed, for you will be fa land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.
