    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:8

    Mía es la plata, y mío es el oro, dijo el SEÑOR de los ejércitos.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. The
    silver [is] mine, and the gold [is] mine, saith the Lord of hosts .] This seems designed to anticipate an objection taken from the gold and silver, with which the first temple was either decorated, or were in gifts dedicated to it; and which, it might easily be foreseen, would be wanting in the second temple; and in answer to which the Lord observes, that all the gold and silver in the world were his, were made by him, and were at his dispose; and therefore whatever were bestowed upon the former temple was only giving him his own; what he had a prior right to, and was no accession of riches or honour to him; and so it would be the same, let what would be expended on this; and therefore it was an article very inconsiderable, and of little significance; nor did he regard, or was he delighted with anything of this kind; and, was he so disposed, he could easily command all the gold and silver in the world together, and bring it into this house, to enrich and adorn it, without doing any injury to any person; but these were things he delighted not in; and, besides, he had a far greater glory in view to put upon this house, as follows:

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - Those who are hearty in the
    Lord's service shall receive encouragemen to proceed. But they could not build such a temple then, as Solomo built. Though our gracious God is pleased if we do as well as we can in his service, yet our proud hearts will scarcely let us be pleased unless we do as well as others, whose abilities are far beyond ours Encouragement is given the Jews to go on in the work notwithstanding They have God with them, his Spirit and his special presence. Though he chastens their transgressions, his faithfulness does not fail. The Spirit still remained among them. And they shall have the Messiah amon them shortly; "He that should come." Convulsions and changes would tak place in the Jewish church and state, but first should come grea revolutions and commotions among the nations. He shall come, as the Desire of all nations; desirable to all nations, for in him shall all the earth be blessed with the best of blessings; long expected an desired by all believers. The house they were building should be fille with glory, very far beyond Solomon's temple. This house shall be filled with glory of another nature. If we have silver and gold, we must serve and honour God with it, for the property is his. If we have not silver and gold, we must honour him with such as we have, and he will accept us. Let them be comforted that the glory of this latte house shall be greater than that of the former, in what would be beyon all the glories of the first house, the presence of the Messiah, the Son of God, the Lord of glory, personally, and in human nature. Nothin but the presence of the Son of God, in human form and nature, coul fulfil this. Jesus is the Christ, is He that should come, and we are to look for no other. This prophecy alone is enough to silence the Jews and condemn their obstinate rejection of Him, concerning whom all their prophets spake. If God be with us, peace is with us. But the Jews unde the latter temple had much trouble; but this promise is fulfilled is that spiritual peace which Jesus Christ has by his blood purchased for all believers. All changes shall make way for Christ to be desired an valued by all nations. And the Jews shall have their eyes opened to behold how precious He is, whom they have hitherto rejected.
