In Joel 3:3 (in the Xtain version it is Joel 2:30)

Joel 3:3 (2:30) And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

The Hebrew word that is translated "pillars" is "timarot"

The word "smoke" is the Hebrew for "cloud".

The root of the word Timarot is Tamar. Tamar is "Date Palm"

So the prophesy literally says there will be smoke or a cloud in the shape of Date Palms.

Clouds shaped like Date Palms. This goes to show how much is lost in translation.
