Holman Bible Dictionary
Phrase Haggai used in his prophecy of a renewed Temple (Haggai 2:7
). Some translations (KJV, NIV) interpret the underlying Hebrew as a prophecy of the coming Messiah. Other translations render the phrase “treasure” (TEV, NRSV, REB) or “wealth” (NAS) of all nations in parallel to the gold and silver of Haggai 2:8
. The messianic interpretation first appears in the Latin Vulgate translation, while the treasures would show Yahweh's power to restore the glory of His house despite the people's poverty.
