(חֶמְדִּת כָּלאּהִגּוֹיַם, the delight of all the nations; Sept. τὰ ἐκλεκτὰ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν ; Vulg. desideratus cunctis gentibus) is an expression (Haggai 2:7) usually referred as a title to the Messiah (see in Henderson, Comment. in loc.), but denoting rather the choicest treasures of the Gentiles (comp. Isaiah 60:3-7), which are figuratively represented as an oblation to the Messianic dispensation (see Moore, Comment. in loc.; Sartorius, De venturo gentiue Desiderio, Tub. 1756).
