Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Haggai 1:4

_ _ Is it time — It is not time (Haggai 1:2), ye say, to build Jehovah’s house; yet how is it that ye make it a fit time not only to build, but to “dwell” at ease in your own houses?

_ _ you, O ye — rather, for “you, you”; the repetition marking the shameful contrast between their concern for themselves, and their unconcern for God [Maurer]. Compare a similar repetition in 1 Samuel 25:24; Zechariah 7:5.

_ _ ceiled — rather, “wainscoted,” or “paneled,” referring to the walls as well as the ceilings; furnished not only with comfort but luxury, in sad contrast to God’s house not merely unadorned, but the very walls not raised above the foundations. How different David’s feelings (2 Samuel 7:2)!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Haggai 1:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Haggai 1:4

Ceiled — Arched and richly adorned.
