Haggai   1


 1. In the second <08147> year <08141> of Darius <01867> the king <04428>, in the sixth <08345> month <02320>, in the first <0259> day <03117> of the month <02320>, came <01961> the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> by Haggai <02292> the prophet <05030> unto Zerubbabel <02216> the son <01121> of Shealtiel <07597>, governor <06346> of Judah <03063>, and to Joshua <03091> the son <01121> of Josedech <03087>, the high <01419> priest <03548>, saying <0559>,


 2  Thus <03541> speaketh <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>, saying <0559>, This <02088> people <05971> say <0559>, The time <06256> is not come <0935>, the time <06256> that the LORD'S <03068> house <01004> should be built <01129>.


 3  Then came <01961> the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> by Haggai <02292> the prophet <05030>, saying <0559>,


 4  [Is it] time <06256> for you, O ye, to dwell <03427> in your cieled <05603> houses <01004>, and this <02088> house <01004> [lie] waste <02720>?


 5  Now <06258> therefore thus <03541> saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>; Consider your ways <01870>.


 6  Ye have sown <02232> much <07235>, and bring <0935> in little <04592>; ye eat <0398>, but ye have not enough <07654>; ye drink <08354>, but ye are not filled with drink <07937>; ye clothe <03847> you, but there is none <0369> warm <02527>; and he that earneth <07936> wages <07936> earneth <07936> wages <07936> [to put it] into <0413> a bag <06872> with holes <05344>.


 7  Thus <03541> saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>; Consider your <05315> ways <01870>.


 8  Go <05927> up to the mountain <02022>, and bring <0935> wood <06086>, and build <01129> the house <01004>; and I will take pleasure <07521> in it, and I will be glorified <03513>, saith <0559> the LORD <03068>.


 9  Ye looked <06437> for much <07235>, and, lo <02009>, [it came] to little <04592>; and when ye brought <0935> [it] home <01004>, I did blow <05301> upon it. Why? saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>. Because <03282> of mine house <01004> that [is] waste <02720>, and ye run <07323> every man <0376> unto his own house <01004>.


 10  Therefore the heaven <08064> over <05921> you is stayed <03607> from dew <02919>, and the earth <0776> is stayed <03607> [from] her fruit <02981>.


 11  And I called <07121> for a drought <02721> upon the land <0776>, and upon the mountains <02022>, and upon the corn <01715>, and upon the new <08492> wine <08492>, and upon the oil <03323>, and upon [that] which <0834> the ground <0127> bringeth <03318> forth <03318>, and upon men <0120>, and upon cattle <0929>, and upon all <03605> the labour <03018> of the hands <03709>.


 12. Then Zerubbabel <02216> the son <01121> of Shealtiel <07597>, and Joshua <03091> the son <01121> of Josedech <03087>, the high <01419> priest <03548>, with all <03605> the remnant <07611> of the people <05971>, obeyed <08085> the voice <06963> of the LORD <03068> their God <0430>, and the words <01697> of Haggai <02292> the prophet <05030>, as the LORD <03068> their God <0430> had sent <07971> him, and the people <05971> did fear <03372> before <06440> the LORD <03068>.


 13  Then spake <0559> Haggai <02292> the LORD'S <03068> messenger <04397> in the LORD'S <03068> message <04400> unto the people <05971>, saying <0559>, I [am] with you, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>.


 14  And the LORD <03068> stirred <05782> up the spirit <07307> of Zerubbabel <02216> the son <01121> of Shealtiel <07597>, governor <06346> of Judah <03063>, and the spirit <07307> of Joshua <03091> the son <01121> of Josedech <03087>, the high <01419> priest <03548>, and the spirit <07307> of all <03605> the remnant <07611> of the people <05971>; and they came <0935> and did <06213> work <04399> in the house <01004> of the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>, their God <0430>,


 15  In the four <0702> and twentieth <06242> day <03117> of the sixth <08345> month <02320>, in the second <08147> year <08141> of Darius <01867> the king <04428>.


Haggai   2


 1. In the seventh <07637> [month], in the one <0259> and twentieth <06242> [day] of the month <02320>, came <01961> the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> by the prophet <05030> Haggai <02292>, saying <0559>,


 2  Speak <0559> now <04994> to Zerubbabel <02216> the son <01121> of Shealtiel <07597>, governor <06346> of Judah <03063>, and to Joshua <03091> the son <01121> of Josedech <03087>, the high <01419> priest <03548>, and to the residue <07611> of the people <05971>, saying <0559>,


 3  Who <04310> [is] left <07604> among you that saw <07200> this <02088> house <01004> in her first <07223> glory <03519>? and how <04100> do ye see <07200> it now <06258>? [is it] not in your eyes <05869> in comparison <03644> of it as nothing <0369>?


 4  Yet now <06258> be strong <02388>, O Zerubbabel <02216>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>; and be strong <02388>, O Joshua <03091>, son <01121> of Josedech <03087>, the high <01419> priest <03548>; and be strong <02388>, all <03605> ye people <05971> of the land <0776>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>, and work <06213>: for I [am] with you, saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>:


 5  [According to] the word <01697> that I covenanted <03772> with you when ye came <03318> out of Egypt <04714>, so my spirit <07307> remaineth <05975> among <08432> you: fear <03372> ye not.


 6  For thus <03541> saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>; Yet <05750> once <0259>, it [is] a little <04592> while, and I will shake <07493> the heavens <08064>, and the earth <0776>, and the sea <03220>, and the dry <02724> [land];


 7  And I will shake <07493> all <03605> nations <01471>, and the desire <02532> of all <03605> nations <01471> shall come <0935>: and I will fill <04390> this <02088> house <01004> with glory <03519>, saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>.


 8  The silver <03701> [is] mine, and the gold <02091> [is] mine, saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>.


 9  The glory <03519> of this <02088> latter <0314> house <01004> shall be greater <01419> than of the former <07223>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>: and in this <02088> place <04725> will I give <05414> peace <07965>, saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>.


 10. In the four <0702> and twentieth <06242> [day] of the ninth <08671> [month], in the second <08147> year <08141> of Darius <01867>, came <01961> the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> by Haggai <02292> the prophet <05030>, saying <0559>,


 11  Thus <03541> saith <0559> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>; Ask <07592> now <04994> the priests <03548> [concerning] the law <08451>, saying <0559>,


 12  If <02005> one bear <05375> holy <06944> flesh <01320> in the skirt <03671> of his garment <0899>, and with his skirt <03671> do touch <05060> bread <03899>, or pottage <05138>, or wine <03196>, or oil <08081>, or any <03605> meat <03978>, shall it be holy <06942>? And the priests <03548> answered <06030> and said <0559>, No <03808>.


 13  Then said <0559> Haggai <02292>, If <0518> [one that is] unclean <02931> by a dead body <05315> touch <05060> any <03605> of these <0428>, shall it be unclean <02930>? And the priests <03548> answered <06030> and said <0559>, It shall be unclean <02930>.


 14  Then answered <06030> Haggai <02292>, and said <0559>, So <03651> [is] this <02088> people <05971>, and so <03651> [is] this <02088> nation <01471> before <06440> me, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>; and so <03651> [is] every <03605> work <04639> of their hands <03027>; and that which <0834> they offer <07126> there <08033> [is] unclean <02931>.


 15  And now <04994>, I pray <04994> you, consider from this <02088> day <03117> and upward <04605>, from before <02962> a stone <068> was laid <07760> upon a stone <068> in the temple <01964> of the LORD <03068>:


 16  Since those [days] were, when [one] came <0935> to an heap <06194> of twenty <06242> [measures], there were [but] ten <06235>: when [one] came <0935> to the pressfat <03342> for to draw <02834> out fifty <02572> [vessels] out of the press <06333>, there were [but] twenty <06242>.


 17  I smote <05221> you with blasting <07711> and with mildew <03420> and with hail <01259> in all <03605> the labours <04639> of your hands <03027>; yet ye [turned] not to me, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>.


 18  Consider now <04994> from this <02088> day <03117> and upward <04605>, from the four <0702> and twentieth <06242> day <03117> of the ninth <08671> [month, even] from the day <03117> that the foundation <03245> of the LORD'S <03068> temple <01964> was laid, consider [it].


 19  Is the seed <02233> yet <05750> in the barn <04035>? yea, as yet <05704> the vine <01612>, and the fig <08384> tree, and the pomegranate <07416>, and the olive <02132> tree <06086>, hath not brought <05375> forth <05375>: from this <02088> day <03117> will I bless <01288> [you].


 20. And again <08145> the word <01697> of the LORD <03068> came <01961> unto Haggai <02292> in the four <0702> and twentieth <06242> [day] of the month <02320>, saying <0559>,


 21  Speak <0559> to Zerubbabel <02216>, governor <06346> of Judah <03063>, saying <0559>, I will shake <07493> the heavens <08064> and the earth <0776>;


 22  And I will overthrow <02015> the throne <03678> of kingdoms <04467>, and I will destroy <08045> the strength <02392> of the kingdoms <04467> of the heathen <01471>; and I will overthrow <02015> the chariots <04818>, and those that ride <07392> in them; and the horses <05483> and their riders <07392> shall come <03381> down <03381>, every <0376> one <0376> by the sword <02719> of his brother <0251>.


 23  In that day <03117>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>, will I take <03947> thee, O Zerubbabel <02216>, my servant <05650>, the son <01121> of Shealtiel <07597>, saith <05002> the LORD <03068>, and will make <07760> thee as a signet <02368>: for I have chosen <0977> thee, saith <05002> the LORD <03068> of hosts <06635>.
