Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 1:5

_ _ Awake — out of your ordinary state of drunken stupor, to realize the cutting off from you of your favorite drink. Even the drunkards (from a Hebrew root, “any strong drink”) shall be forced to “howl,” though usually laughing in the midst of the greatest national calamities, so palpably and universally shall the calamity affect all.

_ _ wine ... new wine — “New” or “fresh wine,” in Hebrew, is the unfermented, and therefore unintoxicating, sweet juice extracted by pressure from grapes or other fruit, as pomegranates (Song of Songs 8:2). “Wine” is the produce of the grape alone, and is intoxicating (see on Joel 1:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 1:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 1:5

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