Joel 2:29

29 In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants—men and women alike.

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.
