Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 3:21

_ _ cleanse ... blood ... not cleansed — I will purge away from Judah the extreme guilt (represented by “blood," the shedding of which was the climax of her sin, Isaiah 1:15) which was for long not purged away, but visited with judgments (Isaiah 4:4). Messiah saves from guilt, in order to save from punishment (Matthew 1:21).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 3:18-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 3:21

And I will cleanse — Purge away both by the spirit of sanctification and by free pardon in the blood of the redeemer. Their blood — Their sinfulness, which before I had not taken away.

Does this verse refer to the time when God will graft Israel back (after the time of the Gentiles)? In other words, Christians now receive cleansing from sin by faith and repentance in Christ but when the Jews are grafted back in (during the tribulation) then God will personally cleanse them from their sin as opposed to salvation by faith in Christ?
