14 I am the Lord your God.
Perhaps I will change my mind
    and treat you with mercy.
Then you will be blessed
with enough grain and wine
    for offering sacrifices to me.

15 Sound the trumpet on Zion!
    Call the people together.
Show your sorrow
    by going without food.
16 Make sure that everyone
    is fit to worship me.[a]
Bring adults, children, babies,
and even bring newlyweds
    from their festivities.
