Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 1:15

_ _ day of the Lord — (Joel 2:1, Joel 2:11); that is, the day of His anger (Isaiah 13:9; Obadiah 1:15; Zephaniah 1:7, Zephaniah 1:15). It will be a foretaste of the coming day of the Lord as Judge of all men, whence it receives the same name. Here the transition begins from the plague of locusts to the worse calamities (Joel 2:1-11) from invading armies about to come on Judea, of which the locusts were the prelude.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 1:14-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 1:15

The day of the Lord — A day of greater trouble than yet they felt, troubles which God will heap upon them. Shall it come — Unless fasting, prayers and amendment prevent.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
