    Clarke's Commentary on Joel 2:26

    Praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you - In so destroying this formidable enemy; and so miraculously restoring the land to fertility, after so great a devastation.

    Barnes' Notes on Joel 2:26

    And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied - It is of the punishment of God, when people eat and are not satisfied (see Hosea 4:10); it is man's sin, that they are satisfied, and do not to praise God, but the more forget Him Hosea 13:6. And so God's blessings become a curse to him. God promises to restore His gifts, and to give grace withal, that they should own and thank Him.

    Who hath dealt wondrously with you - "First, wonderfully He afflicted and chastened them, and then gave them wonderful abundance of all things, and very great and miraculous consolation after vehement tribulution, so that they might truly say, This is the change of the Right Hand of the Most High."

    And My people shall never be ashamed - o: "So that they persevere in His service. Although he incur temporal confusion, yet this shall not last for ever, but the people of the predestinate, penitent, and patient in adversity, will be saved forever."

    Wesley's Notes on Joel 2:26

    2:26 Wondrously - In one year giving as much as the locusts wasted in the years foregoing. Ashamed - Neither disappointed of your hopes, nor necessitated to seek relief among the heathen.
