Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Haggai 1:10

_ _ heaven ... is stayed from dew — literally, “stays itself.” Thus heaven or the sky is personified; implying that inanimate nature obeys Jehovah’s will; and, shocked at His people’s disobedience, withholds its goods from them (compare Jeremiah 2:12, Jeremiah 2:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Haggai 1:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Haggai 1:10

Is stayed — God hath forbidden them, to drop down dew.
