The Book Of Haggai

Of the parentage of the prophet HAGGAI we know nothing; but the general opinion, founded on the assertion of EPIPHANIUS, is, that he was born at Babylon, during the captivity, and was one of the Jews who returned with Zerubbabel in consequence of the edict of Cyrus.

Concluding Remarks On The Book Of Micah

The beauty and elegance of MICAH’s sytle have been much admired, Bp. LOWTH characterizes it as compressed, short, nervous, and sharp.  It is often elevated, animated, and sublime, and generally truly poetical though occasionally obscure, on account of his sudden transitions from one subject to another.  Threre are, indeed, few beauties or elgances of composition of which examples may not be found in this prophet; and for strength of expression, and sublime and impressive diction, […]

B.C. 785. to A.M. 3279. B.C. 725. being a period of 60 years. It is probable that he was an Israelite, and lived in the kingdom of Samaria, […]
