Reformation Study Bible – Hag 2:9
Hag 2:9

2:9 glory. This promise of greater glory is realized in Christ, the greatest manifestation of God’s presence and glory (Mal. 3:1; John 1:14). Christ gives His glory to His church, the new temple of God (Eph. 2:21; 3:20, 21).

in this place I will give peace. This peace (Hebrew shalom) means more than the absence of conflict. It implies prosperity and a sense of total well-being. Christ gives peace to believers now (John 14:27), but ultimate fulfillment awaits the time when the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:22).
