Verse 23

Joel 2:23. He hath given you the former rain moderately The season of the former rain was about the middle of October. The Hebrew word לצדקה , rendered moderately, literally signifies, according to righteousness: and is equivalent with according to judgment. Archbishop Newcome renders it, in just proportion: and he will cause to come the latter rain in the first month Which was Nisan, partly answering to our March. The regular season for this rain was three months before harvest, Amos 4:7; that is, before wheat-harvest, which was later than the barley-harvest in Judea. Of the former and latter rain, see note on Hosea 6:3.
