14 Who knows? He may turn and relent(A)
and leave a blessing behind him,(B)
so you can offer grain and wine
to the Lord your God.(C)

15 Blow the horn in Zion!(D)
Announce a sacred fast;(E)
proclaim an assembly.
16 Gather the people;
sanctify the congregation;(F)
assemble the aged;[a](G)
gather the infants,
even babies nursing at the breast.
Let the groom leave his bedroom,(H)
and the bride her honeymoon chamber.
