NET © Notes

tn Heb “all the days of.”

sn Darius ruled Persia ca. 522-486 B.C.

sn The purpose of the opening verses of this chapter is to summarize why the Jews returning from the exile were unable to complete the rebuilding of the temple more quickly than they did. The delay was due not to disinterest on their part but to the repeated obstacles that had been placed in their path by determined foes.
