    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15

    ¡Ay del día! Porque cercano está el día del SEÑOR, y vendrá como destrucción hecha por el Todopoderoso.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joel 1:15

    Verse 15. Alas for the
    day!] The Syriac repeats this, the Vulgate, Septuagint, and Arabic, thrice: "Alas, alas, alas, for the day!" As a destruction from the Almighty] The destruction that is now coming is no ordinary calamity; it is as a signal judgment immediately inflicted by the Almighty.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. Alas for the
    day! for the day of the Lord [is] at hand , etc.] A time of severer and heavier judgments than these of the locusts, caterpillars, etc. which were a presage and emblem of greater ones, even of the total destruction of their city, temple, and nation, either by the Chaldeans, or by the Romans, or both: and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come ; unawares, suddenly, and irresistibly: there is in the Hebrew text an elegant play on words, which may be rendered, as “wasting from the waster”, or “destruction from the destroyer, shall it come” F22 ; even from the almighty God, who is able to save and destroy, and none can deliver out of his hands; (see Isaiah 13:6); the word signifies one powerful and victorious, as Aben Ezra observes; and so it does in the Arabic language.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    An exhortation to repentance. (Hos. 14:1-3) Blessings
    promised, showin the rich comforts of the gospel. (Hos. 14:4-8) The just and the wicked (Hos. 14:9)

    Hos. 14:1-3 Israel is exhorted to return unto Jehovah, from their sin and idols, by faith in his mercy, and grace through the promise Redeemer, and by diligently attending on his worship and service. Tak away iniquity; lift it off as a burden we are ready to sink under, or as the stumbling-block we have often fallen over. Take it all away by free and full forgiveness, for we cannot strike any of it off. Receiv our prayer graciously. They do not say what good they seek, but refe it to God. It is not good of the world's showing, but good of God' giving. They were to consider their sins, their wants, and the remedy and they were to take, not sacrifices, but words stating the desires of their hearts, and with them to address the Lord. The whole forms clear description of the nature and tendency of a sinner's conversio to God through Jesus Christ. As we draw near to God by the prayer of faith, we should first beseech him to teach us what to ask. We must be earnest with him to take away all iniquity.

    Hos. 14:4-8 Israel seeks God's face, and they shall not seek it is vain. His anger is turned from them. Whom God loves, he loves freely not because they deserve it, but of his own good pleasure. God will be to them all they need. The graces of the Spirit are the hidden manna hidden in the dew; the grace thus freely bestowed on them shall not be in vain. They shall grow upward, and be more flourishing; shall grow a the lily. The lily, when come to its height, is a lovely flower, Matt 6:28,29. They shall grow downward, and be more firm. With the flower of the lily shall be the strong root of the cedar of Lebanon. Spiritual growth consists most in the growth of the root, which is out of sight They shall also spread as the vine, whose branches extend very widely When believers abound in good works, then their branches spread. The shall be acceptable both to God and man. Holiness is the beauty of soul. The church is compared to the vine and the olive, which brin forth useful fruits. God's promises pertain to those only that atten on his ordinances; not such as flee to this shadow only for shelter in a hot gleam, but all who dwell under it. When a man is brought to God all who dwell under his shadow fare the better. The sanctifying fruit shall appear in his life. Thus believers grow up into the experienc and fruitfulness of the gospel. Ephraim shall say, God will put it int his heart to say it, What have I to do any more with idols! God' promises to us are more our security and our strength for mortifyin sin, than our promises to God. See the power of Divine grace. God wil work such a change in him, that he shall loathe the idols as much a ever he loved them. See the benefit of sanctified afflictions. Ephrai smarted for his idolatry, and this is the fruit, even the taking awa his sin, Is. 27:9. See the nature of repentance; it is a firm and fixe resolution to have no more to do with sin. The Lord meets penitent with mercy, as the father of the prodigal met his returning son. God will be to all true converts both a delight and a defence; they shal sit under his shadow with delight. And as the root of a tree; From m is thy fruit found: from Him we receive grace and strength to enable u to do our duty.

    Hos. 14:9 Who profit by the truths the prophet delivered? Such as se themselves to understand and know these things. The ways of God' providence towards us are right; all is well done. Christ is Foundation Stone to some, to others a Stone of stumbling, and a Rock of offence. That which was ordained to life, becomes, through their abus of it, death to them. The same sun softens wax and hardens clay. But those transgressors certainly have the most dangerous, fatal falls, wh fall in the ways of God, who split on the Rock of Ages, and suck poiso out of the Balm of Gilead. Let sinners in Zion fear this. May we lear to walk in the right ways of God, as his righteous servants, and ma none of us be disobedient and unbelieving, and stumble at the word __________________________________________________________________
