Bible Commentary for Haggai 2:4

Wesley's Notes for Haggai 2:4


2:3 That saw - Near fourscore years ago. This house - The temple built by Solomon.

2:5 My spirit - Of strength and courage, of wisdom and understanding.

2:6 Yet once - After many confirmations of the new covenant, one more, remains to be made. A little while - Tho' above five hundred years, yet this was but a little time compared with that between the promise to Adam and Christ's coming. I will shake - Whether it be metaphorical or literal, it was verified at the time of Christ's coming into the world. After the return of the captivity, by the commotions among the Grecians, Persians, and Romans, which began soon after this time; this was metaphorically fulfilled. And it was literally fulfilled by prodigies and earthquakes, at the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ.
