14 Who knows? Perhaps He will turn and relieve you of this threat,
    and leave behind some blessing as He goes—
Maybe enough grain and wine to offer
    to the Eternal, your True God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion; set apart a time for fasting;
    tell everyone to be still and stop working.
16 Assemble the people. Consecrate the congregation.
    Gather the elders and other leaders,
The young children, and even the nursing babies.
    Let the bride and groom leave their chambers on their wedding night.
