The Order to Build the House1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the [2month 1sixth], day one of the month, came the word of the lord by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying, Say to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, from the tribe of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech the [2priest 1great], saying, 2 Thus says the lord almighty, saying, This people say, [3is not 4come 1The 2time] to build the house of the lord. 3 And came to pass the word of the lord by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 Is [2indeed 3time 4for you 1it] to live in [3houses 1your 2vaulted], but this house is quite desolate? 5 And now, thus says the lord almighty, Arrange your hearts for your journeys! 6 You sowed much, and carried in little; you ate and not unto fullness; you drank and not unto intoxication; you clothed yourselves, and were not heated by these; and the one of the ones [2wages 1gathering] gathered them in a bundle having holes being made in it. 7 Thus says the lord almighty, Establish your hearts for your journeys! 8 Ascend into the mountain, and cut wood! and you shall build the house. And I will think well by it, and I will be glorified, said the lord. 9 You looked for much, and there became little; and it was carried into the house, and I blew it away. On account of this, thus says the lord almighty, Because my house is deserted, and you [2pursue 1each] unto his own house. 10 On account of this [3withholds 1the 2heaven] of dew, and the earth keeps back its resources. 11 And I will bring the broadsword upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the grain, and upon the wine, and upon the olive oil, and as much as [3brings forth 1the 2earth], and upon the men, and upon the cattle, and upon all the toils of their hands. 12 And they heard (Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel from the tribe of Judah, and Joshua the son of Josedech the [2priest 1great], and all the rest of the people) the voice of the lord their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, in so far as what [3sent 4him 1the lord 2their God] for them. And [3feared 1the 2people] from in front of the lord. 13 And [5said 1Haggai 2the 3messenger 4of the lord] among the messengers of the lord, Say to the people! I am with you, says the lord. 14 And the lord awakened the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel from the tribe of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech the [2priest 1great], and the spirit of the rest of the people. And they entered and did the works in the house of the lord almighty, their God, 15 on the fourth and twentieth day of the [2month 1sixth], in the second year of Darius the king.
