Joel 1:7 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The reason for this warning is given in Hosea 4:16., viz., the punishment which will fall upon Israel. Hosea 4:16. "For Israel has become refractory like a refractory cow; now will Jehovah feed them like a lamb in a wide field." סורר, unmanageable, refractory (Deuteronomy 21:18, cf. Zechariah 7:11). As Israel would not submit to the yoke of the divine law, it should have what it desired. God would feed it like a lamb, which being in a wide field becomes the prey of wolves and wild beasts, i.e., He would give it up to the freedom of banishment and dispersion among the nations.
