Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Joel 2:7-9.


Joel 2:8

_ _ Neither shall one thrust another — that is, press upon so as to thrust his next neighbor out of his place, as usually occurs in a large multitude.

_ _ when they fall upon the sword — that is, among missiles.

_ _ not be wounded — because they are protected by defensive armor [Grotius]. Maurer translates, “Their (the locusts’) ranks are not broken when they rush among missiles” (compare Daniel 11:22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 2:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 2:8

The sword — The sword shall not be a weapon to destroy them; literally verified in the locusts, and verified in the strange preservations in the most desperate adventures made by the Assyrians or Babylonians.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Joel 2:8

Neither shall one (f) thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and [when] they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

(f) For none will be able to resist them.
