PEACE FROM ENEMIES, FREEDOM FROM DANGER, QUIET ENJOYMENT OF PROMISED BLESSINGS
HAGGAI 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
PULPIT COMMENTARY God would grant peace from enemies, freedom from danger, and quiet enjoyment of promised blessings. But the promise is not fulfilled by this; the peace promised to the spiritual temple is that peace of heart and conscience which is given by him who is the Prince of Peace, and which includes all the graces of the Christian covenant. The first temple was built by the king whose name is "Peaceful;" the second is glorified by the presence of the "Peace bringer". The end of this verse has an addition not found in the Hebrew, "even peace of soul".
