The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says Yahweh of Armies. Bible other translations

“The silver is mine, and the gold is mine.” The people were poor and Zerubbabel’s temple was nothing spectacular, so the people could easily wonder how the future temple could be filled with glory. But God makes it clear that the silver and gold is His, and so the glory of the future temple will be greater than “former” temple, Solomon’s temple, as Haggai 2:9 says.
