 1. In the second <8147 sh@nayim > year <8141 shaneh > of Darius <1867 Dar<yavesh > the king <4428 melek >, in the sixth <8345 shishshiy > month <2320 chodesh >, in the first <0259 >echad > day <3117 yowm > of the month <2320 chodesh >, came <1961 hayah > the word <1697 dabar > of the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > by Haggai <2292 Chaggay > the prophet <5030 nabiy> > unto Zerubbabel <2216 Z@rubbabel > the son <1121 ben > of Shealtiel <7597 Sh@>altiy>el >, governor <6346 pechah > of Judah <3063 Y@huwdah >, and to Joshua <3091 Y@howshuwa< > the son <1121 ben > of Josedech <3087 Y@howtsadaq >, the high <1419 gadowl > priest <3548 kohen >, saying <0559 >amar >,


 2 Thus <3541 koh > speaketh <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >, saying <0559 >amar >, This <2088 zeh > people <5971 <am > say <0559 >amar >, The time <6256 <eth > is not come <0935 bow> >, the time <6256 <eth > that the LORD'S <3068 Y@hovah > house <1004 bayith > should be built <1129 banah >.


 3 Then came <1961 hayah > the word <1697 dabar > of the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > by Haggai <2292 Chaggay > the prophet <5030 nabiy> >, saying <0559 >amar >,


 4 [Is it] time <6256 <eth > for you, O ye, to dwell <3427 yashab > in your cieled <5603 caphan > houses <1004 bayith >, and this <2088 zeh > house <1004 bayith > [lie] waste <2720 chareb >?


 5 Now <6258 <attah > therefore thus <3541 koh > saith <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >; Consider your ways <1870 derek >.


 6 Ye have sown <2232 zara< > much <7235 rabah >, and bring <0935 bow> > in little <4592 m@<at >; ye eat <0398 >akal >, but ye have not enough <7654 sob<ah >; ye drink <8354 shathah >, but ye are not filled with drink <7937 shakar >; ye clothe <3847 labash > you, but there is none <0369 >ayin > warm <2527 chom >; and he that earneth <7936 sakar > wages <7936 sakar > earneth <7936 sakar > wages <7936 sakar > [to put it] into <0413 >el > a bag <6872 ts@rowr > with holes <5344 naqab >.


 7 Thus <3541 koh > saith <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >; Consider your <5315 nephesh > ways <1870 derek >.


 8 Go <5927 <alah > up to the mountain <2022 har >, and bring <0935 bow> > wood <6086 <ets >, and build <1129 banah > the house <1004 bayith >; and I will take pleasure <7521 ratsah > in it, and I will be glorified <3513 kabad >, saith <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah >.


 9 Ye looked <6437 panah > for much <7235 rabah >, and, lo <2009 hinneh >, [it came] to little <4592 m@<at >; and when ye brought <0935 bow> > [it] home <1004 bayith >, I did blow <5301 naphach > upon it. Why? saith <5002 n@>um > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >. Because <3282 ya<an > of mine house <1004 bayith > that [is] waste <2720 chareb >, and ye run <7323 ruwts > every man <0376 >iysh > unto his own house <1004 bayith >.


 10 Therefore the heaven <8064 shamayim > over <5921 <al > you is stayed <3607 kala> > from dew <2919 tal >, and the earth <0776 >erets > is stayed <3607 kala> > [from] her fruit <2981 y@buwl >.


 11 And I called <7121 qara> > for a drought <2721 choreb > upon the land <0776 >erets >, and upon the mountains <2022 har >, and upon the corn <1715 dagan >, and upon the new <8492 tiyrowsh > wine <8492 tiyrowsh >, and upon the oil <3323 yitshar >, and upon [that] which <0834 >aher > the ground <0127 >adamah > bringeth <3318 yatsa> > forth <3318 yatsa> >, and upon men <0120 >adam >, and upon cattle <0929 b@hemah >, and upon all <3605 kol > the labour <3018 y@giya< > of the hands <3709 kaph >.


 12. Then Zerubbabel <2216 Z@rubbabel > the son <1121 ben > of Shealtiel <7597 Sh@>altiy>el >, and Joshua <3091 Y@howshuwa< > the son <1121 ben > of Josedech <3087 Y@howtsadaq >, the high <1419 gadowl > priest <3548 kohen >, with all <3605 kol > the remnant <7611 sh@>eriyth > of the people <5971 <am >, obeyed <8085 shama< > the voice <6963 qowl > of the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > their God <0430 >elohiym >, and the words <1697 dabar > of Haggai <2292 Chaggay > the prophet <5030 nabiy> >, as the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > their God <0430 >elohiym > had sent <7971 shalach > him, and the people <5971 <am > did fear <3372 yare> > before <6440 paniym > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah >.


 13 Then spake <0559 >amar > Haggai <2292 Chaggay > the LORD'S <3068 Y@hovah > messenger <4397 mal>ak > in the LORD'S <3068 Y@hovah > message <4400 mal>akuwth > unto the people <5971 <am >, saying <0559 >amar >, I [am] with you, saith <5002 n@>um > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah >.


 14 And the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > stirred <5782 <uwr > up the spirit <7307 ruwach > of Zerubbabel <2216 Z@rubbabel > the son <1121 ben > of Shealtiel <7597 Sh@>altiy>el >, governor <6346 pechah > of Judah <3063 Y@huwdah >, and the spirit <7307 ruwach > of Joshua <3091 Y@howshuwa< > the son <1121 ben > of Josedech <3087 Y@howtsadaq >, the high <1419 gadowl > priest <3548 kohen >, and the spirit <7307 ruwach > of all <3605 kol > the remnant <7611 sh@>eriyth > of the people <5971 <am >; and they came <0935 bow> > and did <6213 <asah > work <4399 m@la>kah > in the house <1004 bayith > of the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >, their God <0430 >elohiym >,


 15 In the four <0702 >arba< > and twentieth <6242 <esriym > day <3117 yowm > of the sixth <8345 shishshiy > month <2320 chodesh >, in the second <8147 sh@nayim > year <8141 shaneh > of Darius <1867 Dar<yavesh > the king <4428 melek >.

 7 And I will shake <7493 ra<ash > all <3605 kol > nations <1471 gowy >, and the desire <2532 chemdah > of all <3605 kol > nations <1471 gowy > shall come <0935 bow> >: and I will fill <4390 male> > this <2088 zeh > house <1004 bayith > with glory <3519 kabowd >, saith <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >.


 8 The silver <3701 keceph > [is] mine, and the gold <2091 zahab > [is] mine, saith <5002 n@>um > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >.

 10. In the four <0702 >arba< > and twentieth <6242 <esriym > [day] of the ninth <8671 t@shiy<iy > [month], in the second <8147 sh@nayim > year <8141 shaneh > of Darius <1867 Dar<yavesh >, came <1961 hayah > the word <1697 dabar > of the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > by Haggai <2292 Chaggay > the prophet <5030 nabiy> >, saying <0559 >amar >,


 11 Thus <3541 koh > saith <0559 >amar > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah > of hosts <6635 tsaba> >; Ask <7592 sha>al > now <4994 na> > the priests <3548 kohen > [concerning] the law <8451 towrah >, saying <0559 >amar >,

And the priests <3548 kohen > answered <6030 <anah > and said <0559 >amar >, No <3808 lo> >.

 16 Since those [days] were, when [one] came <0935 bow> > to an heap <6194 <arem > of twenty <6242 <esriym > [measures], there were [but] ten <6235 <eser >: when [one] came <0935 bow> > to the pressfat <3342 yeqeb > for to draw <2834 chasaph > out fifty <2572 chamishshiym > [vessels] out of the press <6333 puwrah >, there were [but] twenty <6242 <esriym >.


 17 I smote <5221 nakah > you with blasting <7711 sh@dephah > and with mildew <3420 yeraqown > and with hail <1259 barad > in all <3605 kol > the labours <4639 ma<aseh > of your hands <3027 yad >; yet ye [turned] not to me, saith <5002 n@>um > the LORD <3068 Y@hovah >.
