Amos 8:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Effects of the rain. Joel 2:24. "And the barns become full of corn, and the vats flow over with new wine and oil. Joel 2:25. And I repay to you the years which the locust has eaten, the licker, and the devourer, and the gnawer, my great army which I sent among you. Joel 2:26. And ye will eat, eat and be satisfied, and praise the name of Jehovah your God, who hath done wondrously with you; and my people shall not be put to shame to all eternity. Joel 2:27. And ye will know that I am in the midst of Israel, and I((am) Jehovah your God, and none else, and my people shall not be put to shame to all eternity." Joel 2:24 is practically the same as Joel 2:19, and the counterpart to Joel 1:10-12. השׁיק from שׁוּק, to run, hiphil only here and Joel 3:13, to run over, to overflow; pilel, Psalm 65:10, shōqēq, to cause to overflow. יקבים, the vats of the wine-presses, into which the wine flows when trodden out; here it also applies to the vats of the oil-presses, into which the oil ran as it was pressed out. Through these bountiful harvests God would repay to the people the years, i.e., the produce of the years, which the locusts ate. The plural, shânı̄m, furnishes no certain proof that Joel referred in ch. 1 to swarms of locusts of several successive years; but is used either with indefinite generality, as in Genesis 21:7, or with a distinct significance, viz., as a poetical expression denoting the greatness and violence of the devastation. On the different names of the locusts, see at Joel 1:4. It is to be observed here that the copula stands before the last two names, but not before yeleq, so that the last three names belong to one another as co-ordinates (Hitzig), i.e., they are merely different epithets used for 'arbeh, the locusts.
