Joel chapter 4 verse 7 (in the Hebrew Bible) says this;

Behold I arouse them from the place where you sold them, and I will return your recompense upon your head.

The prophet Joel, writing of the nations who took Israel captive, sold her children into slavery, desecrated the temple at Jerusalem and took away the treasures therein, declared that the Lord would bring judgement upon them for their wicked deeds.

The people of God whom they sold into captivity would be stirred to return home by the Lord and those who sold them would be visited by the same evil treatment that they metted out on the people of Judah

The Lord's great army would be mobilized against them and their mighty men would be broken. 

Even as the power of the Lord breaks the kingdom of darkness with a great shaking, the Lord would be a shelter and stronghold for His people.

Joel chapter 4 verse 16 says it this way;

And the Lord shall roar from Zion, and from Jerusalem He shall give forth His voice, and the heavens and earth shall quake, and the Lord is a shelter to His people and a stronghold for the children of Israel.
