¶ Haggai 1 v1-11

{ heart }   [HG] 1v1

In the second year of Darius the king,
in the sixth month, in the first day of the month
came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet
unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah,
and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak the high priest,
saying;

{ heart }   [HG] 1v2

Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts,
saying:


This people say,

 ‘The time is not come,
the time
that the LORD'S house should be built’.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v3

Then came the word of the LORD
by Haggai, the prophet,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 1v4

Is it time for you, O ye,
to dwell in your ceiled houses,
and this house lie waste?

{ heart }   [HG] 1v5

Now, therefore,
thus saith the LORD of hosts;

 ‘Consider your ways’.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v6

Ye have sown much,
and bring in little;
ye eat,
but ye have not enough;
ye drink,
but ye are not filled with drink;
ye clothe you,
but there is none warm;
and he that earneth wages
earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v7

Thus saith the LORD of hosts,

 ‘Consider your ways’.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v8

Go up to the mountain, and bring wood,
and build the house;
and I will take pleasure in it,
and I will be glorified,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v9

Ye looked for much
and, lo, it came to little;
and when ye brought it home,
I did blow upon it:
Why?


Saith the LORD of hosts.

Because of MINE house that is waste,
and ye run every man unto his own house.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v10

Therefore, the heavens over you
is stayed from dew,
and the earth
is stayed from her fruit.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v11

And I called for a drought
upon the land,
and upon the mountains,
and upon the grain,
and upon the new wine,
and upon the oil,
and upon that which the ground bringeth forth,
and upon men,
and upon cattle,
and upon all the labor of the hands.

¶ Haggai 1 v12-15

{ heart }   [HG] 1v12

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 the LORD, their GOD,
and the words of Haggai, the prophet,
as the LORD, their GOD, had sent him,
and the people did fear before the LORD.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v13

Then spake Haggai, the LORD'S messenger,
in the LORD'S message unto the people,
saying,

I AM with you,

Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [HG] 1v14

And the LORD 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 did work in the house
of the LORD of hosts, their GOD,

{ heart }   [HG] 1v15

In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month,
in the second year of Darius the king.

¶ Haggai 2 v1-9

{ heart }   [HG] 2v1

In the seventh month,
in the one and twentieth day of the month,
came the word of the LORD
by the prophet Haggai,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 2v2

Speak now
to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel,
governor of Judah,
and to Joshua, the son of Jehozadak,
the high priest,
and to the residue of the people,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 2v3

Who is left among you
that saw this house in her first glory?
and how do ye see it now?
Is it not in your eyes
in comparison of it
as nothing?

{ heart }   [HG] 2v4

Yet now
be strong, O Zerubbabel,


Saith the LORD;

And be strong, O Joshua, son of Jehozadak,
the high priest;
and be strong all ye people of the land,


Saith the LORD,

And work;
for I AM with you,


Saith the LORD of hosts:

{ heart }   [HG] 2v5

According to the word
that I covenanted with you
when ye came out of Egypt,
so MY SPIRIT remaineth among you;
fear ye not.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v6

For thus saith the LORD of hosts:

Yet once, it is a little while,
and I will shake the heavens, and the earth,
and the sea, and the dry land;

{ heart }   [HG] 2v7

And I will shake all nations,
and the DESIRE of all nations shall come;
and I will fill this house with glory,


Saith the LORD of hosts.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v8

The silver is MINE,
and the gold is MINE,


Saith the LORD of hosts.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v9

The glory of this latter house shall be greater
than of the former,


Saith the LORD of hosts;

And in this place will I give peace,

Saith the LORD of hosts.

¶ Haggai 2 v10-19

{ heart }   [HG] 2v10

In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month,
in the second year of Darius,
came the word of the LORD
by Haggai, the prophet,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 2v11

Thus saith the LORD of hosts:

Ask now the priests concerning the law,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 2v12

If one bear holy flesh
in the skirt of his garment,
and with his skirt do touch
bread,
or pottage,
or wine,
or oil,
or any meat,
shall it be holy?


And the priests answered
and said,

No.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v13

Then said Haggai,

If one that is unclean by a dead body
touch any of these,
shall it be unclean?


And the priests answered
and said,

It shall be unclean.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v14

Then answered Haggai,
and said,

So is this people, and so is this nation
before ME,


Saith the LORD;

And so is every work of their hands;
and that which they offer there
is unclean.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v15

And now, I pray you,

 ‘Consider from this day and upward,
from before a stone was laid upon a stone
in the temple of the LORD’;

{ heart }   [HG] 2v16

Since those days were,
when one came
to an heap of twenty measures,
there were but ten;
when one came to the press-fat
for to draw out fifty vessels
out of the press,
there were but twenty.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v17

I smote you with blasting and with mildew
and with hail
in all the labors of your hands;
yet ye turned not to ME,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v18

Consider now from this day and upward,
from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month,
even from the day
that the foundation of the LORD'S temple
was laid,
consider it.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v19

Is the seed yet in the barn?
yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree,
and the pomegranate, and the olive tree,
hath not brought forth:
from this day will I bless you.

¶ Haggai 2 v20-23

{ heart }   [HG] 2v20

And again the word of the LORD
came unto Haggai
in the four and twentieth day of the month,
saying,

{ heart }   [HG] 2v21

Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah,
saying,

 ‘I will shake the heavens and the earth’.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v22

And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms,
and I will destroy the strength
of the kingdoms of the heathen;
and I will overthrow the chariots,
and those who ride in them;
and the horses and their riders
shall come down,
every one by the sword of his brother.

{ heart }   [HG] 2v23

In that day,

Saith the LORD of hosts,

Will I take thee, O Zerubbabel,
MY servant,
the son of Shealtiel,


Saith the LORD,

And will make thee as a signet;
for I have chosen thee,


Saith the LORD of hosts.
