Zechariah 8:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The prophet begins by charging the people with their unconcern about building the house of God. Haggai 1:2. "Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: This people saith, It is not time to come, the time for the house of Jehovah to be built." העם הזּה, iste populus, not my people, or Jehovah's people, but hazzeh (this) in a contemptuous sense. Of the two clauses, (a) "It is not time to come," and (b) "The time of the house of Jehovah," the latter gives the more precise definition of the former, the בּא (to come) being explained as meaning the time to build the house of Jehovah. The meaning is simply this: the time has not yet arrived to come and build the house of Jehovah; for לא in this connection signifies "not yet," as in Genesis 2:5; Job 22:16. A distinction is drawn between coming to the house of Jehovah and building the house, as in Haggai 1:14. There is no ground, therefore, for altering the text, as Hitzig proposes, inasmuch as the defective mode of writing the infinitive בּא is by no means rare (compare, for example, Exodus 2:18; Leviticus 14:48; Numbers 32:9; 1 Kings 13:28; Isaiah 20:1); and there is no foundation whatever for the absurd rendering of the words of the text, "It is not the time of the having arrived of the time of the house," etc. (Hitzig).
