    Definitions for Haggai 1:10

    Stayed - Detained; held.

    Clarke's Commentary on Haggai 1:10

    Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew - It appears from the following verse that God had sent a drought upon the land, which threatened them with scarcity and famine.

    Barnes' Notes on Haggai 1:10

    Therefore, for you, - on your account; (As in Psalm 44:43.) for your sins, (Jon.) He points out the moral cause of the drought, whereas men think of this or that cause of the variations of the seasons, and we, e. g., take into our mouths Scriptural words, as "murrain of cattle," and the like, and think of nothing less than why it was sent, or who sent it. Haggai directs the mind to the higher Cause, that as they withheld their service from God, so, on their account and by His will, His creatures withheld their service from them.

    Wesley's Notes on Haggai 1:10

    1:10 Is stayed - God hath forbidden them, to drop down dew.
