Haggai 1

1In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, 2Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. 3Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4Is it time for you, O you, to dwell in your cieled houses and this house lies waste? 5Now therefore thus says the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. 6You have sown much and bring in little; you eat, but you have not enough; you drink, but you are not filled with drink; you clothe yourself, but there is no one warm; and he that earns wages earns wages to put it into a bag with holes. 7Thus says the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. 8Go up to the mountain and bring wood and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it and I will be glorified, says the LORD. 9You looked for much and, lo, it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew on it. Why? says the LORD of hosts. Because of my house that is waste and you run every man to his own house. 10Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew and the earth is stayed from her fruit. 11And I called for a drought on the land and on the mountains and on the corn and on the new wine, and on the oil and on that which the ground brings forth and on men and on cattle and on all the labor of the hands.

12Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him and the people feared before the LORD. 13Then Haggai the LORD'S messenger spoke in the LORD'S message to the people, saying, I am with you, says the LORD. 14And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and worked in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, 15In the twenty fourth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.

Chapter 2

1In the seventh month, in the twenty first day of the month, the word of the LORD came by the prophet Haggai, saying, 2Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest and to the residue of the people, saying, 3Who is left among you who saw this house in her first glory? and how do you see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? 4Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, says the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land, says the LORD and work: for I am with you, says the LORD of hosts: 5According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so my spirit remains among you: fear not. 6For thus says the LORD of hosts; Yet it is a little while and I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea, and the dry land once,; 7And I will shake all nations and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of hosts. 8The silver is mine and the gold is mine, says the LORD of hosts. 9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, says the LORD of hosts: and in this place I will give peace, says the LORD of hosts.

10In the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 11Thus says the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, 12If one bears holy flesh in the skirt of his garment and with his skirt touches bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No. 13Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. 14Then answered Haggai and said, So is this people and so is this nation before me, says the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean. 15And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid on a stone in the temple of the LORD: 16Since those days were, when one came to a heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the press vat to draw out fifty vessels from the press, there were but twenty. 17I struck you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labors of your hands; yet you did not turn to me, says the LORD. 18Consider now from this day and upward, from the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it. 19Is the seed yet in the barn? yes, as yet the vine and the fig tree and the pomegranate and the olive tree, have not brought forth: But from this day I will bless you.

20And again the word of the LORD came to Haggai in the twenty fourth day of the month, saying, 21Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; 22And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 23In that day, says the LORD of hosts, I will take you, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the LORD and will make you as a signet: for I have chosen you, says the LORD of hosts.
