1 In the asecond year of Darius the king, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the LORD came by the prophet bHaggai to cZerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, dgovernor of Judah, and to eJoshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, 2 “Thus says the LORD of Ihosts, ‘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 a[lies] desolate?” 5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, “IConsider your ways! 6 You have asown much, but Iharvest little; [you] eat, but [there is] not [enough] to be satisfied; [you] drink, but [there is] IInot [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.”

Why?” declares the LORD of hosts, “Because of My house which c[lies] desolate, while each of you runs to his own house. 10 Therefore, because of you the asky has withheld Iits dew and the earth has withheld its produce. 11 I called for a adrought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on bmen, on cattle, and on call the labor of Iyour hands.”

Haggai reproveth the people for neglecting the building of the house.

1 ¶ 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 Josedech, the high priest, saying, 2 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. 3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 [Is it] time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house [lie] waste? 5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. 6 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.

He inciteth them to the building.

7 ¶ Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. 8 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. 9 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. 10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed [from] her fruit. 11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, 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 labour of the hands.
