From the Book of Joel
"Sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the LORD your God; and cry to the LORD.
"Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is near, and as destruction from the Almighty it comes.
"Is not the food cut off before our eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God?"
