Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Haggai 1:8

_ _ Go up to the mountain — Moriah [Rosenmuller]; Lebanon [Henderson]. Rather, generally, the mountains around, now covered with wood, the growth of the long period of the captivity. So Nehemiah 8:15, “Go forth unto the mount,” that is, the neighboring hills [Maurer].

_ _ wood — Haggai specifies this as being the first necessary; not to the exclusion of other materials. Stones also were doubtless needed. That the old walls were not standing, as the Hebrew interpreters quoted by Jerome state, or the new walls partly built, appears from Haggai 2:18, where express mention is made of laying the foundations.

_ _ I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified — I will be propitious to suppliants in it (1 Kings 8:30), and shall receive the honor due to Me which has been withheld. In neglecting the temple, which is the mirror of My presence, ye dishonor Me [Calvin]; in its being built, ye shall glorify Me.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Haggai 1:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
