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.

27 You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I, the Lord, am your God and there is no other. And my people shall never again be put to shame.
28 Then afterward I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
29 Even on the male and female slaves, in those days, I will pour out my spirit.
30 I will show portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.
