    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:19

    A ti, oh SEÑOR, clamaré; porque fuego consumió los pastos del desierto, y llama abrasó todos los árboles del campo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joel 1:19

    Verse 19. O
    Lord, to thee will I cry] Let this calamity come as it may, we have sinned, and should humble ourselves before God; and it is such a calamity as God alone can remove, therefore unto him must we cry.

    The fire hath devoured the pastures] This may either refer to a drought, or to the effects of the locusts; as the ground, after they have passed over it, everywhere appears as if a sheet of flame had not only scorched, but consumed every thing.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. O Lord, to thee will I cry , etc.] Or pray, as the Targum; with great vehemency and earnestness, commiserating the case of man and beast: these are the words of the prophet, resolving to use his interest at the through of grace in this time of distress, whatever others did: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness ; or, “of the plain” F27 though in the wildernesses of Judea, there were pastures for cattle:

    Kimchi interprets them of the shepherds’ tents or cotes, as the word F28 is sometimes used; which were will not to be pitched where there were pastures for their flocks: and so the Targum renders it, “the habitations of the wilderness”; these, whether pastures or habitations, or both, were destroyed by fire, the pastures by the locusts, as Kimchi; which, as Pliny F29 says, by touching burn the trees, herbs, and fruits of the earth; (see Joel 2:3); or by the Assyrians or Chaldeans, who by fire and sword consumed all in their way; or by a dry burning blasting wind, as Lyra; and so the Targum interprets it of a strong east wind like fire: it seems rather to design extreme heat and excessive drought, which burn up all the produce of the earth: and the flame hath burnt all the trees of the field ; which may be understood of flashes of lightning, which are common in times of great heat and drought; (see Psalm 83:14).


    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 __________________________________________________________________
