Joel 2:1 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

1. Blow ye the horn in Zion ] see, in justification of this rendering of shôphâr, on Amo 2:2. The horn is to be sounded, in order to give notice of impending danger, and arouse the people to meet it (cp. on Amo 3:6).

sound an alarm ] The word, though it often has the sense of shouting, is used also to denote the long, continuous blast of the horn, which, in contradistinction to a succession of short, sharp notes, was the signal of danger (Num 10:9, though the reference there is not to the shôphâr, but to the ḥatzôtzerâh).

tremble ] aroused viz., by the ‘alarm,’ from their security.

for the day of Jehovah cometh, for it is at hand (or near)] Repeated, with some variation, from Joe 1:15. at hand (or near), exactly as Joe 1:15, Joe 3:14.

Part I. Chap. Joe 1:2 to Joe 2:17

Description of the present calamity (ch. 1.). The terrible “Day of Jehovah,” of which it is the harbinger (Joe 2:1-11), but which may yet be averted by the nation’s timely repentance (Joe 2:12-17).
