Haggai Begins Temple Building1 In the a second year of Darius the king, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the Lord came by the prophet b Haggai to c Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, d governor of Judah, and to e Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, 2 “Thus says the Lord of ▼
▼ Lit hosts, sayinghosts, ‘This people says, “The time has not come, even the time for the house of the Lord to be rebuilt.”’” 3 Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses while this house g lies desolate?” 5 Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts ▼
▼ Lit Set your heart on“Consider your ways! 6 “You have i sown much, but ▼
▼ Lit bring inharvest little; you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied; you drink, but there is ▼
▼ Lit not becoming drunknot enough to become drunk; you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes.” 7 Thus says the Lord of hosts ▼
▼ Lit Set your heart on“Consider your ways! 8 “Go up to the ▼
▼ Lit mountainmountains, bring wood and n rebuild the ▼
▼ Lit housetemple, that I may be p pleased with it and be q glorified,” says the Lord. 9 r “You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I s blow it away. Why?” declares the Lord of hosts, “Because of My house which t lies desolate, while each of you runs to his own house. 10 “Therefore, because of you the u sky has withheld ▼
▼ Lit from dewits dew and the earth has withheld its produce. 11 “I called for a w drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on x men, on cattle, and on y all the labor of ▼
▼ Lit the palmsyour hands.” 12 Then aa Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and ab Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, ac 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 ▼
▼ Lit feared before, ae showed reverence for the Lord. 13 Then Haggai, the af messenger of the Lord, spoke ▼
▼ Or the messageby the commission of the Lord to the people saying, “‘ ah I am with you,’ declares the Lord.” 14 So the Lord stirred up the spirit of ai Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, aj governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the ak remnant of the people; and they came and al worked on the house of the Lord of hosts, their God, 15 on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month in the second year of Darius the king.
