So here, the object of this longing was manifold, but met in one, was concentrated in One, 1 Corinthians 1:30. Haggai 2:7 plainly connects the filling of God's house with glory to the prior fact of the "Desire of all nations" having been brought into it; and "the desirable things" of all nations such as their wealth, their gold and silver, could not in any sense be viewed as "the glory" of God's house.
