This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

The vine: Dr. Shaw observes, that in Barbary, in the month of June the locusts are no sooner hatched than they collect themselves into compact bodies, each a "furlong or more square; and marching directly after they are come to life, make their way towards the sea and let nothing escape them, eating up everything that is green or juicy; not only the lesser vegetables, but the vine likewise, the fig-tree, the pomegranate, the palm, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field." Joe 1:10; Hab 3:17-18

the pomegranate: Num 13:23; Psa 92:12; Son 2:3, Son 4:13, Son 7:7-9

joy: Joe 1:16; Psa 4:7; Isa 9:3, Isa 16:10, Isa 24:11; Jer 48:3; Hos 9:1-2
