    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:1

    ¶ Porque he aquí que en aquellos días, y en aquel tiempo en que haré tornar la cautividad de Judá y de Jerusalén,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joel 3:1

    Verse 1. For, behold, in those days] According to the preceding
    prophecy, these days should refer to Gospel times, or to such as should immediately precede them. But this is a part of the prophecy which is difficult to be understood. All interpreters are at variance upon it; some applying its principal parts to Cambyses; his unfortunate expedition to Egypt; the destruetion of fifty thousand of his troops (by the moving pillars of sand) whom he had sent across the desert to plunder the rich temple of Jupiter Ammon; his return to Judea, and dying of a wound which he received from his own sword, in mounting his horse, which happened at Ecbatane, at the foot of Mount Carmel. On which his army, composed of different nations, seeing themselves without a head, fell out, and fought against each other, till the whole were destroyed. And this is supposed to be what Ezekiel means by Gog and Magog, and the destruction of the former. See Ezek. xxxviii. and 39.

    Others apply this to the victories gained by the Maccabees, and to the destruction brought upon the enemies of their country; while several consider the whole as a figurative prediction of the success of the Gospel among the nations of the earth. It may refer to those times in which the Jews shall be brought in with the fullness of the Gentiles, and be re-established in their own land. Or there may be portions in this prophecy that refer to all the events; and to others that have not fallen yet within the range of human conjecture, and will be only known when the time of fulfillment shall take place. In this painful uncertainty, rendered still more so by the discordant opinions of many wise and learned men, it appears to be my province, as I have nothing in the form of a new conjecture to offer, to confine myself to an explanation of the phraseology of the chapter; and then leave the reader to apply it as may seem best to his own judgment.

    I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem.] This may refer to the return from the Babylonish captivity; extending also to the restoration of Israel, or the ten tribes.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. For, behold, in those days, and at that time , etc.] Which Kimchi refers to the times of the Messiah; and is true of the latter times of the Messiah, of his spiritual reign yet to come: when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem : not from the Edomites, Tyrians, and Philistines, that had carried them captive in the times of Ahaz; nor from Babylon, where they had been carried captive by Nebuchadnezzar; for nothing of what is after foretold followed upon the return of these captivities: but this designs the present captivity of the Jews, and the restoration of them to their own land; of which (see Isaiah 52:8 Jeremiah 30:3,9,18-21).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    God's judgments. (Joel 2:1-14) Exhortations to fasting and prayer blessings promised. (Joel 2:15-27) A promise of the Holy Spirit, and of future mercies. (Joel 2:28-32)

    Joel 2:1-14 The priests were to alarm the people with the near approac of the Divine judgments. It is the work of ministers to warn of the fatal consequences of sin, and to reveal the wrath from heaven agains the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men. The striking descriptio which follows, shows what would attend the devastations of locusts, but may also describe the effects from the ravaging of the land by the Chaldeans. If the alarm of temporal judgments is given to offendin nations, how much more should sinners be warned to seek deliveranc from the wrath to come! Our business therefore on earth must especiall be, to secure an interest in our Lord Jesus Christ; and we should see to be weaned from objects which will soon be torn from all who now make idols of them. There must be outward expressions of sorrow and shame fasting, weeping, and mourning; tears for trouble must be turned int tears for the sin that caused it. But rending the garments would be vain, except their hearts were rent by abasement and self-abhorrence by sorrow for their sins, and separation from them. There is n question but that if we truly repent of our sins, God will forgiv them; but whether he will remove affliction is not promised, yet the probability of it should encourage us to repent.

    Joel 2:15-27 The priests and rulers are to appoint a solemn fast. The sinner's supplication is, Spare us, good Lord. God is ready to succou his people; and he waits to be gracious. They prayed that God woul spare them, and he answered them. His promises are real answers to the prayers of faith; with him saying and doing are not two things. Some understand these promises figuratively, as pointing to gospel grace and as fulfilled in the abundant comforts treasured up for believers in the covenant of grace.

    Joel 2:28-32 The promise began to be fulfilled on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured out, and it was continued in the converting grace and miraculous gifts conferred on both Jews an Gentiles. The judgments of God upon a sinful world, only go before the judgment of the world in the last day. Calling on God suppose knowledge of him, faith in him, desire toward him, dependence on him and, as evidence of the sincerity of all this, conscientious obedienc to him. Those only shall be delivered in the great day, who are no effectually called from sin to God, from self to Christ, from thing below to things above __________________________________________________________________
