Joel 2:29

29 and also on male and female slaves in those days I will pour out my Spirit.

Joel 2:29 Meaning and Commentary

Joel 2:29

And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those
days will I pour my Spirit.
] Men servants and maidservants should partake of the gifts and grace of the Spirit in great, abundance; and many of them were effectually called by grace, through the ministry of the word; and some servants became ministers of it; all which appears from ( 1 Corinthians 7:21 1 Corinthians 7:22 ) ( 1 Timothy 6:1 1 Timothy 6:2 ) ( Philemon 1:10 Philemon 1:11 Philemon 1:16 ) ; for that is not true what the Jews F16 say, the Shechinah or divine Majesty does not rest but upon a wise man, and one mighty and rich; or prophecy, as Maimonides F17 has it.


F16 T. Bab. Sabbat, fol. 92. 1.
F17 Moreh Nevochim, par. 2. c. 32.

Joel 2:29 In-Context

27 You will know that I am with Isra'el and that I am ADONAI your God, and that there is no other. Then my people will never again be shamed.
28 "After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions;
29 and also on male and female slaves in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
30 I will show wonders in the sky and on earth - blood, fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and terrible Day of ADONAI."
