Bible Commentary for Joel 1:7

Wesley's Notes for Joel 1:7


1:5 Is cut off - Suddenly cut off even when you are ready to drink it, and totally cut off by these devouring vermin.

1:6 A nation - An innumerable multitude of locusts and caterpillars, called a nation here, as Solomon calls the conies and the ant, #Prov 30:25|,26, and perhaps a prognostick of a very numerous and mighty nation, that ere long will invade Judah. Strong - Mighty in power, and undaunted in courage, if you refer it to the Assyrian or Babylonians; if to those vermin, they are, though each weak by itself, yet in those multitudes, strong and irresistible. A great lion - Such waste as lions make, these the locusts do, and the Assyrians will make.

1:8 The husband of her youth - Espoused to her, but snatched away by an untimely death.

1:9 The drink - offering - By the destruction of the vines, all wine (out of which they ought to offer the drink - offering) failed.
