Bible Commentary for Haggai 2:7

Wesley's Notes for Haggai 2:7


2:7 All nations - Which was literally fulfilled in the overthrow of the Persian monarchy by the Grecians, in the civil wars, and succeeding troubles among Alexander's successors, the growth of the Roman power by subduing their neighbours, and their dissentions and home - bred wars. The desire - Christ the most desirable, to all nations, and who was desired by all that knew their own misery, and his sufficiency to save them who was to be the light of the Gentiles, as well as the glory of his people Israel. With glory - The first temple had a glory in its magnificent structure, rich ornaments, and costly sacrifices; but this was a worldly glory; that which is here promised, is a heavenly glory from the presence of Christ in it. He that was the brightness of his father's glory, who is the glory of the church, appeared in this second temple.


Discussion for Haggai 2:7

  • John Buchan on Haggai 2:7
    It seems very clear that if this question was asked in our generation I am sure the answer would be "PEACE". The desire of everyone all over the world would be "PEACE"
    Peace of mind is something far more precious than gold or silver. Peace that I would have clean water something we take for granted. Peace to live in harmony with my neighbour. Peace can be applied to every area of mankind. True peace can only be found in one place, an unselfish heart.
