    you suppose, since it is only the third hour of
    the day. "But this is what was spoken by the
    prophet Joel 'And it shall come to pass in the
    last days, says God, That I will pour out of My
    Spirit on all flesh Your sons and your daughters
    shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions,
    Your old men shall dream dreams.
