desire of all nations

Haggai 2:7

2:7 desire of all nations. The “desire of all nations” can be no one less than the Lord Jesus Christ, the world’s Redeemer. He did, in a precursive sense, fill Herod’s temple with His glory (see John 1:14; 2:13-16), but never the restoration temple. This specific prophecy evidently harks back to the Edenic promise of Genesis 3:15. He was not merely the desire of Israel, but the “desire of all nations!” Some versions incorrectly say this refers to the wealth of all nations coming to the temple.
