Jesus was the Desire of all nations—(1) as the Kinsman of the whole human family; (2) because He only could bestow those precious blessings which the world needed; (3) because all nations shall one day be made happy in Him.

(3) The verb "shall come" [ baa'uw (Hebrew #935)] is plural, which requires the noun to be understood in the plural, whereas, if Messiah be intended, the noun is singular. Long for Jesus! R. Akiba, whom they accounted “the first oracle of his time, the first and greatest guardian of the tradition and old law,” of whom they said, that “God revealed to him things unknown to Moses,” was induced by this prophecy to acknowledge the impostor Bar-cochab, to the destruction of himself and of the most eminent of his time; fulfilling our Lord‘s words John 5:43, “I am come in My fathers name, and ye receive Me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”, Akiba, following the traditional meaning of the great prophecy which rivetted his own eyes, paraphrased the words, “Yet a little, a little of the kingdom, will I give to Israel upon the destruction of the first house, and after the kingdom, lo! Art thou ignorant and erring? And actually, this isn’t all God has to say about his divine presence. The Jews, who rejected our Lord whom Haggai predicted, still were convinced that the prediction must be fulfilled before the destruction of the second temple. The first had a fulness of 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. The Desire of all nations shall come; Christ, the most desirable, because the most helpful to all nations, which some proselytes in all ages did come to the knowledge of, and did earnestly desire; and who was desired by all that knew their own misery. The desire â 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.

He brings these objections to applying “the desire of all nations” to Messiah: (1) The Hebrew means the quality, not the thing desired, namely, its desirableness or beauty, But the abstract is often put for the concrete. And has he not yet a temple to which he will come [Note: Matthew 18:20; Matthew 28:20.]? yet a little while is long since past, and the true Messiah long since come.

Besides, Messiah may be described as realizing in Himself at His coming "the desires (the noun expressing collectively the plural) of all nations:" whence the verb is plural. Isaiah 65:2.) And the Desire of all nations shall come - The present Hebrew text is as follows: הגוים כל חמדת ובאו . And death was unredeemed with one single ray of brightness. It took four thousand years to make men feel their want of a Saviour; it has taken but half that time to make one moiety of those who, nevertheless, call themselves by His name, to live in practical unbelief; and the other moiety to regard His second coming with terror, and not with joy. Charles Wesley followed this second interpretation when he wrote the Christmas hymn "Hark! Behold the grace, in his treatment of the adulterous woman [Note: John 8:11.]! He is "fairer than the children of men." and his sufficiency to save them, who was to be the light of the Gentiles as well as the glory of his people Israel. So Micah and Isaiah describe many peoples inviting one another Micah 4:2; Isaiah 2:3. Hence chemdath cannot be the accusative of direction, since the thought that the heathen come to the treasures of all the heathen furnishes no suitable meaning; but it is the nominative or subject, and is construed as a collective word with the verb in the plural.

Behold the power, in in his miraculous cures, and irresistible operation on the minds of men [Note: Matthew 21:12.]! And because the nations had not heard of Christ till he came in the flesh, and this coming of the desire of all nations seems to follow presently upon the preaching of the gospel, therefore Junius renders it Desiderati, the desirable ones of all nations, and interprets it, of the elect (the Septuagint also say the same, of οι εκλεκτοι των εθνων), who should come to the second temple in a spiritual sense, worshipping the same God that these good Jews did, and should come with strength of affection (as the Hebrew importeth), should make hard shift to come, Isaiah 66:20 "They shall bring your brethren as an offering to the Lord, upon horses, in chariots, and in litters," that is, though sick, weakly, and unfit for travel, yet rather in litters than not at all. Haggai 2:20-23.—J. These defects however were more than supplied to the latter temple by the presence of Jesus. as a consequence of the shaking of the nations. It is by accident to the sea that it maketh the passenger sick; the ill humours in his stomach disease him. So in Song of Solomon 5:16, He is altogether lovely;" in the Hebrew [w.

It was the received expression of God‘s manifestation of Himself in the tabernacle Exodus 40:34-35. in Soloman‘s temple, 1 Kings 8:11; 2 Chronicles 5:14; 2 Chronicles 7:1-12, and of the ideal temple Ezekiel 43:5; Ezekiel 44:4. which Ezekiel saw, after the likeness of that of Solomon, that “the glory of the Lord filled the house.” When then of this second temple God uses the self-same words, that He will “fill it with glory,” with what other glory should He fill it than His own? We cannot in English express the delicacy of the phrase, whereby manifoldness is combined in unity, the Object of desire containing in itself many objects of desire. That exile began in 587 B.C. xiv. The happy days that do not come, the quiet content that surely will be reached at last—all are in Him, and in the life and the home to which He would lead us if we would but go. But what is decisive against it is the fact, that the coming of the nations to the Messiah would be a thought completely foreign to the context, since the Messiah cannot without further explanation be identified with the temple. God was never said to give these offerings to Himself. Haggai 2:7 7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired k by all nations will come, and I will fill this house l with glory, m ’ says the Lord Almighty. 1:8 , ch. "Come, Desire of nations, come! ", So until now and in eternity, "Christ is the longing of all holy souls, who long for nothing else, than to please Him, daily to love Him more, to worship Him better. The rendering of the Authorised Version, which is based on Jeromeâs et venit desideratus cunctis gentibus, is grammatically impossible with the present text, for the verb âcomeâ is plural, not singular. Biblical Commentary Haggai 1:15b – 2:9 EXEGESIS: THE CONTEXT: Haggai is a post-exilic prophet, serving during the period following the Babylonian Exile. Art thou ambitious of honors? ], He did in due season honour the temple with his presence—, [The season of his appearance there was foretold [Note: He was to come while the temple was standing; Malachi 3:1 and the text. This is a difficult place if understood of a person: but חמדת chemdath, desire, cannot well agree with באו bau, they shall come. This "desire" could be an impersonal reference to the wealth that the nations desire (cf. (2) Messiah was not desired by all nations, but a "root out of a dry ground," having "no beauty that we should desire Him" (Isaiah 53:2). III. "The whole creation," Paul saith, "groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." Come to Jesus! "in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption." It is true that some learned men suppose that חמדות chemdoth, desirable things, may have been the original reading: but this is supported by no MS., nor is באו found in the singular number in any. ", Akiba, following the traditional meaning of the great prophecy which rivetted his own eyes, paraphrased the words, "Yet a little, a little of the kingdom, will I give to Israel upon the destruction of the first house, and after the kingdom, lo! He is manna, “containing in Him all sweetness and pleasurable delight.” Thirstest thou? But Esaias is very bold and saith, I was found of them that sought Me not.”, So until now and in eternity, “Christ is the longing of all holy souls, who long for nothing else, than to please Him, daily to love Him more, to worship Him better. “Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.” And in truth He became the “desire of the nations,” much more than of the Jews; as, Paul says, (Romans 10:19-20; quoting Deuteronomy 32:21. xvi., p. 268. God was never said to give these offerings to Himself. Still, although written 170 years before our Lord came, it had not apparently much effect until the time, when, from the prophecies of Daniel it was clear, that He must shortly come. And I will shake all nations] First, by the civil wars between the Triumviri, not long before Christ’s incarnation. And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. We’ll read that. Long for Jesus! 7. For most glad would I be to see such a man.” The “good tidings of great joy” were “to all people” (Luke 2:10). Here he is widely mistaken, for it is used of days perpetually; and of the ark, 2 Samuel 6:9; and of mounts coming against Jerusalem, Jeremiah 32:24; and of trees coming to adorn the temple, Isaiah 60:13; and of silver and gold coming into the temple, Joshua 6:19; and Jeremiah 6:20, Why doth incense come to me? "He is the King of glory." A building is filled with what it contains; a mint or treasure-house may be filled with gold: the temple of God was “filled,” we are told, with “the glory of the Lord.” His creatures bring Him such things as they can offer; they bring Isaiah 60:6 “gold and incense;” they Psalm 72:10 “bring presents” and “offer gifts;” they do it, moved by His Spirit, as acceptable to Him. But the principal difficulty lies in the verb ובאו ubau, they shall come. Haggai 2:19.—A. - I seek Him Who for us died; I long for Him Who for us rose. All nature acknowledged the power of Jesus Christ, and the world was reformed. And in truth He became the "desire of the nations," much more than of the Jews; as, Paul says, (Romans 10:19-20; quoting Deuteronomy 32:21.

He is the Saviour, the physician, nay, salvation itself. No wonder that a Saviour from themselves, and from sin and death, was the "Desire of all nations.". The gold upon the walls, even had the second temple been adorned like the first did not fill the temple of Solomon. In the year 520 b.c., when the ten tribes had already been scattered among the heathen for 200 years, and the Judaeans for more than seventy years, the Messianic hope of Israel could not be any longer altogether unknown to the nations. He is the Eternal and Uncreated Wisdom of the Father! A pious modern writer speaks of "the unseen desirables of the spiritual world." Isaiah 65:2.) He whom they longed for, either through the knowledge of Him spread by the Jews in their dispersion, or mutely by the aching craving of the human heart, longing for the restoration from its decay. (3) The verb, “shall come,” is plural, which requires the noun to be understood in the plural, whereas if Messiah be intended, the noun is singular. So Ignatius, "Let fire, cross, troops of wild beasts, dissections, rendings, scattering of bones, mincing of limbs, grindings of the whole body, ill tortures of the devil come upon me, only may I gain Jesus Christ. Neither shall they come empty handed, but with all their desirable things (so some render this text), colligent omnes suos thesauros, saith Calvin, they shall come with strong affections, with liberal contributions, as Acts 4:34, and as Tyrus, who, when once converted, leaves hoarding and heaping up wealth (as formerly), and finds another manner of employment for it, namely, to uphold God’s worship, and to feed and clothe his saints, Isaiah 23:18. Its retention in some of the modern commentaries is mainly attributable to a natural unwillingness to give up a direct Messianic prophecy. Still, although written 170 years before our Lord came , it had not apparently much effect until the time, when, from the prophecies of Daniel it was clear, that He must shortly come . Wishest thou for a blissful life? And I shake all nations, and the costly of all nations will come, and I shall fill this house with glory, saith Jehovah of hosts. However richly any building might be overlaid with gold, no one could say that it is filled with it. Simeon referred to the infant Jesus as "the glory of your people Israel" ( Luke 2:32). So here. he has died for us [Note: Ephesians 5:2.]. The gospel (saith Forbes on Revelation 14:6) hath three degrees of operation in the hearts of men. Their present was dark; their future was darker still. Haggai 2:13, Haggai 2:14.—Spurgeon, My Sermon Notes: Ecclesiastes to Malachi, p. 362. But the plural בּאוּ is hardly reconcilable with this. Dukes, Christian World Pulpit, vol. ], "It is well to remember ... that from earliest days the majority of Christian interpreters followed the Jewish tradition in referring the passage to the coming of Israel"s Messiah." His business, as an extraordinary messenger, was to expound the providences of God, and to give directions concerning particular duties, as he had done, ch. First, it falleth to men’s ears as the sound of many waters, a confused sound, which commonly bringeth neither terror nor joy; but yet a wondering and acknowledgment of a strange force, and more than human power, Mark 1:22-23, Luke 4:32, John 7:46. The words in brackets ( ) are not in the Hebrew Bible. vi., p. 248; Preacher's Monthly, vol. fill this house with glory—(Hag 2:9). The *Jews did not obey God. Long then for Him, love Him, sigh for Him! Haggai 2:11-14.—Ibid., p. 123. Haggai 1:9, ESV: "You looked for much, and behold, it came to little. So Isaiah Isa 26:8-9, "The desire of our soul is to Thy Name and to the remembrance of Thee: with my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me, will I seek Thee early." But what is implied is not that the nations definitely desired Him, but that He was the only one to satisfy the yearning desires which all felt unconsciously for a Saviour, shown in their painful rites and bloody sacrifices. ]: at twelve years old he sat there among the doctors [Note: Luke 2:46. C. Hare, Sermons in Herstmonceux Church, vol. And the desire of all nations shall come.—Haggai 2:7. Are we trying at least to desire our Lord's return? Fix in us Thy humble home. For not only in the two poetical descriptions referred to, but also in Habakkuk 3:6, the manifestation of God upon Sinai is represented as a trembling or shaking of the earth, whereby the powers of the heaven were set in motion, and the heavens dropped down water. ]: the urim and thummin, or breast-plate, whereby the high-priest discovered the Divine will, was also gone: the fire, that came down from heaven, was extinguished. 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. Long then for Him, love Him, sigh for Him! Exodus 40:34-35; 1 Kings 8:10-11; Ezekiel 43:1-12). Thus a Lapide. The Desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of Hosts. This longing increased as the time drew near, when Christ should come. he is God over all [Note: Romans 9:5.]. For the latter remark is at once proved to be untenable by the prophecy of Isaiah and Micah, to the effect that all nations will flow to the mountain of God's house. He that was the brightness of his Father’s glory, who is the glory of the church, appeareth in this second temple. “in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” That which the whole world sighed and mourned for, knowingly or unknowingly, light to disperse its darkness, liberty from its spiritual slavery, restoration from its degradation, could not come to us without some one, who should impart it to us. Chandler labors to vindicate the present translation; but he makes rash assertions, and is abandoned by the Hebrew text. Haggai 2:7 Parallel Verses [⇓ See commentary ⇓] Haggai 2:7, NIV: "I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty." To interpret that glory of anything material, is to do violence to language, to force on words of Scripture an unworthy sense, which they refuse to bear. The majority of the commentators have referred these words to the glorification of the temple through the appearance of Jesus in it, and appeal to Exodus 40:34-35; 1 Kings 8:10-11; 2 Chronicles 5:13-14, according to which passages the glory of Jehovah filled the tabernacle and Solomon's temple at their dedication, so that they identify kâbhōd (glory) with kebhōd Yehōvâh (glory of Jehovah) without reserve. When then of this second temple God uses the self-same words, that He will "fill it with glory," with what other glory should He fill it than His own? But this is impracticable, although the expression kâbhōd is chosen by the prophet with a reference to those events, and the fulfilment of our prophecy did commence with the fact that Jehovah came to His temple in the person of Jesus Christ (Malachi 3:1). Nevertheless, of this there can be no doubt, that the world, by woful experience, had learned its need, had found out its want of a Saviour. Recount this chronicle of two generations, one with memories of a glorious past and one with some hopes for a faithful future. 520 during the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem (B.C. He is “the Holy of holies;” He “is everlasting Righteousness,” justifying and sanctifying all who believe and hope in Him. So 'a man of desires' - i:e., one desired or desirable (margin, Daniel 9:23; Daniel 10:3; Daniel 10:11). In this section, "Zechariah pursues the same end as Haggai, rebuilding the temple as the center of worship and world rule, and as a place of pilgrimage for the nations (8:20-23; Haggai 2:7-9 Haggai 2:7-9  And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, said the LORD of hosts. (Comp. i., p. 1. Haggai 2:7 (7) and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory," says the LORD of hosts. Compare Isaiah 60:5, where the words, "the possessions (riches) of the heathen (chēl gōyı̄m) will come to thee," i.e., be brought to Jerusalem, express the same thought; also Isaiah 60:11. Herod doubtless thought to advance his own claims on the Jewish people by his material adorning of the temple; yet, although mankind do covet gold and silver, few could seriously think that, while a pagan immoral but observant poet could speak of "gold undiscovered and so better placed," or our own of the "pale and common drudge 'Tween man and man," a Hebrew prophet could recognize gold and silver as "the desire of all nations." 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. I will shake 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 the subduing their neighbours, and their dissensions and homebred wars, all hushed by Augustus a little before Christ’s birth. Saith the Lord of hosts: this is a solemn sealing the certainty of the thing in this prophet, and Zechariah, and Malachi, who style him Lord of hosts near a hundred times. ].”, He more than supplied all those things which were wanting in this temple—, [Though many of the sacred vessels were restored to the Jews by Cyrus, there was much that was irrecoverably lost. Exodus 3:21-22; Exodus 11:2-3; Exodus 12:35-36). Haggai 2:17.—Ibid., Evening by Evening, p. 218. He sent them into exile. The Jews, who rejected our Lord whom Haggai predicted, still were convinced that the prediction must be fulfilled before the destruction of the second temple. The prophet Haggai mentions certain remarkable events which should distinguish the Messiah's coming—(1) all nations were to be shaken; (2) the Jewish Temple should be filled with His glory. All nations â 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. In the history it is said, “the glory of the Lord filled the temple;” for there man relates what God did. It was enslaved, and the better self longed to be free; every motion of grace in the multitudinous heart of man was a longing for its Deliverer; every weariness of what it was, every fleeting vision of what was better, every sigh from out of its manifold ills, were notes of the one varied cry, "Come and help us." ], but in Christ it shone with brighter, though less dazzling splendour. I. He appeared—(1) at the very period marked out for His birth; (2) in the very manner which had been foretold; (3) for the performance of the very work which had been before marked out for Him. Sigh for Jesus! The small book of Haggai stands on par with other prophetic books in many respects. So Paul sums up all the truths and gifts of the Gospel, all which God shadowed out in the law and had given us in Christ, under the name of “the good things to come.” A pious modern writer speaks of “the unseen desirables of the spiritual world.” A psalmist expresses at once the collective, “God‘s Word” and the “words” contained in it, by an idiom like Haggai‘s, joining the feminine singular as a collective with the plural verb; “How sweet are Thy word unto my taste,” literally “palate.”. [Note: Charles L. Feinberg, " Haggai," in The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, p893.]. The prospect of this event was peculiarly consoling on account of, The presence of Christ in the temple “filled it with glory.” It rendered the latter temple far more glorious than the former [Note: Haggai 2:9. Haggai 2:8. Moore and others translate “the beauty,” or “the desirable things (the precious gifts) of all nations shall come” (Isaiah 60:5, Isaiah 60:11; Isaiah 61:6).
