Chapter Summary

The word nplS, which can be called the central concern of the book of Joel, also expresses some of the aspects of fertility. As a continuation of these aspects, the following verse, Joel 2:24, gives the promise that Yahweh is the one that will fill the threshing floors and the wine presses of the country. Again can be stated the fact that in the time of Joel, the Judean people did not worship Yahweh alone, and, as far as can be concluded from Joel, this was the case even in the temple cultus. Th. Chary has understood the book of Malachi as having been preoccupied with the renewal of the traditional cult. In effecting this renewal, Malachi wanted to reform the cult and in some way to cut off the ties which connected the post-exilic cult with the pre-exilic one.
