NET © Notes

tn Heb “set your heart.” A similar expression occurs in v. 15.

sn The twenty-fourth day of the ninth month was Kislev 24 or December 18, 520. See v. 10. Here the reference is to “today,” the day the oracle is being delivered.

sn The day work…was resumed. This does not refer to the initial founding of the Jerusalem temple in 536 b.c. but to the renewal of construction three months earlier (see 1:15). This is clear from the situation described in v. 19 which accords with the food scarcities of that time already detailed in Hag 1:10-11.

tn Heb “set your heart.” A similar expression occurs in v. 15 and at the beginning of this verse.
