Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 2:32

_ _ call on ... name of ... LordHebrew, Jehovah. Applied to Jesus in Romans 10:13 (compare Acts 9:14; 1 Corinthians 1:2). Therefore, Jesus is Jehovah; and the phrase means, “Call on Messiah in His divine attributes.”

_ _ shall be delivered — as the Christians were, just before Jerusalem’s destruction, by retiring to Pella, warned by the Saviour (Matthew 24:16); a type of the spiritual deliverance of all believers, and of the last deliverance of the elect “remnant” of Israel from the final assault of Antichrist. “In Zion and Jerusalem” the Saviour first appeared; and there again shall He appear as the Deliverer (Zechariah 14:1-5).

_ _ as the Lord hath said — Joel herein refers, not to the other prophets, but to his own words preceding.

_ _ call — metaphor from an invitation to a feast, which is an act of gratuitous kindness (Luke 14:16). So the remnant called and saved is according to the election of grace, not for man’s merits, power, or efforts (Romans 11:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 2:28-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 2:32

Whosoever shall call — Who hearing the gospel repents and believes in Christ. Delivered — Either from those outward afflictions, or which is infinitely better from eternal miseries, which will swallow up the unbelieving world; "and it will aggravate the ruin of those who perish, that they might have been saved on such easy terms." Is it then easy for a non — elect to repent and believe? May he not as easily pull the sun out of the firmament? In mount Zion — In the true church typified by Zion. Jerusalem — In mystical Jerusalem, the church and the city of the Messiah. Deliverance — Temporal and eternal. Shall call — To believe in Christ, and by him to wait for eternal life.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Joel 2:32

And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call (u) on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the (x) remnant whom the LORD shall call.

(u) God's judgments are for the destruction of the unbelievers, and to exhort the godly to call upon the name of God, who will give them salvation.

(x) Meaning the Gentiles by this; (Romans 10:13).
