INTRO 1 2 3 4

Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy your old men shall dream dreams your young men shall see visions;

v’-ha-YAH a-kha-RAY khayn esh-POKH et ru-KHEE al kol ba-SAR v’-ni-b’-U b’-nay-KHEM uv-no-tay-KHEM zik-nay-KHEM kha-lo-MOT ya-kha-lo-MUN ba-khu-ray-KHEM khez-yo-NOT yir-U

א  וְהָיָה אַחֲרֵי כֵן אֶשְׁפּוֹךְ אֶת רוּחִי עַל כָּל בָּשָׂר וְנִבְּאוּ בְּנֵיכֶם וּבְנוֹתֵיכֶם זִקְנֵיכֶם חֲלֹמוֹת יַחֲלֹמוּן בַּחוּרֵיכֶם חֶזְיֹנוֹת יִרְאוּ.

3:1  I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh

Joel describes how, in the end of days, there will be an outpouring of God’s spirit and prophecy among all people, young and old, male and female alike. This is, in fact, Moses’ fervent wish when Joshua confronts him with the complaint that Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp. Moses responds “would that all the LORD’S people were prophets, that the LORD would put His spirit upon them!” (Numbers 11:29). The medieval commentator Abraham Ibn Ezra narrows the meaning of Joel’s prophecy to those who reside in the Land of Israel. Only in the Holy Land can one reach the spiritual heights necessary to communicate with the Divine.

2  And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My spirit.

ב  וְגַם עַל הָעֲבָדִים וְעַל הַשְּׁפָחוֹת בַּיָּמִים הָהֵמָּה אֶשְׁפּוֹךְ אֶת רוּחִי.

3  And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

ג  וְנָתַתִּי מוֹפְתִים בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ דָּם וָאֵשׁ וְתִימְרוֹת עָשָׁן.

4  The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day of Hashem come.

ד  הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ יֵהָפֵךְ לְחֹשֶׁךְ וְהַיָּרֵחַ לְדָם לִפְנֵי בּוֹא יוֹם יְהוָה הַגָּדוֹל וְהַנּוֹרָא.

5  And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of Hashem shall be delivered; for in mount Tzion and in Yerushalayim there shall be those that escape as Hashem hath said and among the remnant those whom Hashem shall call.

ה  וְהָיָה כֹּל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָא בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה יִמָּלֵט כִּי בְּהַר צִיּוֹן וּבִירוּשָׁלִַם תִּהְיֶה פְלֵיטָה כַּאֲשֶׁר אָמַר יְהוָה וּבַשְּׂרִידִים אֲשֶׁר יְהוָה קֹרֵא.
