Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 1:7

_ _ barked — Bochart, with the Septuagint and Syriac, translates, from an Arabic root, “hath broken,” namely, the topmost shoots, which locusts most feed on. Calvin supports English Version.

_ _ my vine ... my fig tree — being in “My land,” that is, Jehovah’s (Joel 1:6). As to the vine-abounding nature of ancient Palestine, see Numbers 13:23, Numbers 13:24.

_ _ cast it away — down to the ground.

_ _ branches ... white — both from the bark being stripped off (Genesis 30:37), and from the branches drying up through the trunk, both bark and wood being eaten up below by the locusts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
