Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joel 3:6

_ _ Grecians — literally, “Javanites,” that is, the Ionians, a Greek colony on the coast of Asia Minor who were the first Greeks known to the Jews. The Greeks themselves, however, in their original descent came from Javan (Genesis 10:2, Genesis 10:4). Probably the germ of Greek civilization in part came through the Jewish slaves imported into Greece from Phoenicia by traffickers. Ezekiel 27:13 mentions Javan and Tyre as trading in the persons of men.

_ _ far from their border — far from Judea; so that the captive Jews were cut off from all hope of return.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joel 3:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joel 3:6

Remove them — That there might be no hope of their return to their country.
