*Abstract. There is an interdependent relationship between the proclamation
of “the Day of the Lord” in Joel 1:15 and the first oracle of judgment
against Judah in Joel 1:5-20. On the one hand, the proclamation of “the Day
of the Lord” obviously strengthens the description and the urgency of that
judgment. On the other hand, rhetorical analysis demonstrates that the
progressive movements within the intensified dramatic tensions of the call
of communal lamentation in Joel 1:5-14 and the communal lamentation in Joel
1:15-20 play a significant role for the proclamation of “the Day of the
Lord” in Joel 1:15. Joel 1:5-14 gradually presents the tensions of the
descriptions of catastrophes and the impacts for the secular and religious
environments in the land of Judah. The nearness and the coming of “The Day
of the Lord” in Joel 1:15 is the highest point of those tensions. “The Day
of the Lord” eventually becomes the reason for the prophet and the people
of Judah to perform communal lamentation in 1:15-20. The position of Joel
1:5-20 in the beginning of the book of Joel allows the reader to regard
this oracle as a trigger that determines the direction and the way of
interpretation for the rest of the oracles in the book. Finally, Joel’s
concern about calamities, communal lamentation, repentance, and restoration
provides a valuable biblical source for the reflection and proclamation of
the Church today concerning ecology.*
