About the Book of Haggai.

books The Book:

Consists of two brief, comprehensive chapters. The object of the prophet was generally to urge the people to proceed with the rebuilding of the temple. Chapter first comprehends the first address (Hag_1:2-11) and its effects (Hag_1:12-15).

Chapter second contains,

  1. The second prophecy (Hag_2:1-9), which was delivered a month after the first.

  2. The third prophecy (Hag_2:10-19), delivered two months and three days after the second; and

  3. The fourth prophecy (Hag_2:20-23), delivered on the same day as the third.

These discourses are referred to in Ezr_5:1; Ezr_6:14; Heb_12:26. (Compare Hag_2:7, Hag_2:8, Hag_2:22.)
