Joel 2:30 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Wonders in the heavens and in the earth - This refers to those dreadful sights, dreadful portents, and destructive commotion, by which the Jewish polity was finally overthrown, and the Christian religion established in the Roman empire.
