The Joel is a Minor Prophet book

The Book of Joel starts with saying that the Word of the Lord came to Joel who was the son of Pethuel[1]. The Word of the Lord told Joel that a lot of locusts were going to destroy all of Israel's crops,[2] which was their main source of food. He calls the elders and all the people to fast. God wants them to not rend their clothes, but their hearts[3].
