Book 37 Haggai 001:001 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai, the prophet, to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, 001:002 "This is what Yahweh of Armies says: These people say, 'The time hasn't yet come, the time for Yahweh's house to be built.'" 001:003 Then the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai, the prophet, saying, 001:004 "Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies waste? 001:005 Now therefore this is what Yahweh of Armies says: Consider your ways. 001:006 You have sown much, and bring in little. You eat, but you don't have enough. You drink, but you aren't filled with drink. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm, and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes in it." 001:007 This is what Yahweh of Armies says: "Consider your ways. 001:008 Go up to the mountain, bring wood, and build the house. I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified," says Yahweh. 001:009 "You looked for much, and, behold, it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?" says Yahweh of Armies, "Because of my house that lies waste, while each of you is busy with his own house. 001:010 Therefore for your sake the heavens withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit. 001:011 I called for a drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on that which the ground brings forth, on men, on livestock, and on all the labor of the hands." 001:012 Then Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of Yahweh, their God, and the words of Haggai, the prophet, as Yahweh, their God, had sent him; and the people feared Yahweh. 001:013 Then Haggai, Yahweh's messenger, spoke in Yahweh's message to the people, saying, "I am with you," says Yahweh. 001:014 Yahweh stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and worked on the house of Yahweh of Armies, their God, 001:015 in the twenty fourth day of the month, in the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king. 002:001 In the seventh month, in the twenty first day of the month, the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 002:002 "Speak now to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying, 002:003 'Who is left among you who saw this house in its former glory? How do you see it now? Isn't it in your eyes as nothing? 002:004 Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says Yahweh. 'Be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,' says Yahweh, 'and work, for I am with you,' says Yahweh of Armies. 002:005 This is the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, and my Spirit lived among you. 'Don't be afraid.' 002:006 For this is what Yahweh of Armies says: 'Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; 002:007 and I will shake all nations. The precious things of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory, says Yahweh of Armies. 002:008 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,' says Yahweh of Armies...
