Elul 17

The prophet Joel continues to speak:

Fear not, O soil, rejoice and be glad; for the L-RD has wrought great deeds. Fear not, O beasts of the field, for the pastures in the wilderness are clothed with grass. The trees have borne their fruit; fig tree and vine have yielded their strength. O children of Zion, be glad, rejoice in the L-RD your G-d. For He has given you the early rain in His kindness, now He makes the rain fall as formerly -- the early rain and the late -- and threshing floors shall be piled with grain, and vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. (Joel 2:21-24, NJPS)

May it be soon and in our days!
