And how do you see it now? Does it not IIseem to you like nothing IIIin comparison? 4 But now Iatake courage, Zerubbabel,’ declares the LORD, ‘take courage also, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and all you people of the land take courage,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work; for bI am with you,’ declares the LORD of hosts. 5 ‘As for the Iapromise which I IImade you when you came out of Egypt, IIIMy bSpirit is abiding in your midst; cdo not fear!’ 6 For thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘aOnce more Iin a blittle while, I am going to cshake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. 7 I will shake aall the nations; and Ithey will come with the bwealth of all nations, and I will cfill this house with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts. 8 ‘The asilver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the LORD of hosts. 9 ‘The latter aglory of this house will be greater than the bformer,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘and in this place I will give cpeace,’ declares the LORD of hosts.”

10 ¶ On the atwenty-fourth of the ninth [month], in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Haggai the prophet, saying, 11 “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘aAsk now the priests [for] a Iruling: 12 If a man carries aholy meat in the Ifold of his garment, and touches bread with IIthis fold, or cooked food, wine, oil, or any [other] food, will it become holy?’” And the priests answered, “No.” 13 Then Haggai said, “aIf one who is unclean from a Icorpse touches any of these, will [the latter] become unclean?” And the priests answered, “It will become unclean.” 14 Then Haggai said, “ ‘aSo is this people. And so is this nation before Me,’ declares the LORD, ‘and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean. 15 But now, do Iaconsider from this day IIonward: before one bstone was placed on another in the temple of the LORD, 16 Ifrom that time [when] one came to a [grain] heap of twenty [measures], there would be only ten; and [when] one came to the wine vat to draw fifty IImeasures, there would be [only] twenty. 17 I smote you [and] every work of your hands with ablasting wind, mildew and hail; Iyet you [did] not [come back] to Me,’ declares the LORD. 18 ‘Do Iaconsider from this day IIonward, from the btwenty-fourth day of the ninth [month]; from the day when the temple of the LORD was cfounded, Iconsider: 19 Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree, it has not borne [fruit]. Yet from this day on I will abless [you].’”

20 ¶ Then the word of the LORD came a second time to Haggai on the atwenty-fourth [day] of the month, saying, 21 “Speak to aZerubbabel governor of Judah, saying, ‘I am going to bshake the heavens and the earth. 22 I will aoverthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the bpower of the kingdoms of the Inations; and I will coverthrow the chariots and their riders, and the dhorses and their riders will go down, eeveryone by the sword of another.’ 23 ‘On that day,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like a Iasignet [ring], for bI have chosen you,’” declares the LORD of hosts.

He encourageth the people to the work, by promise of greater glory to the second Temple than was in the first.

1 ¶ In the seventh [month], in the one and twentieth [day] of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying, 2 Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying, 3 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? 4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, 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: 5 [According to] the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6 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]; 7 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. 8 The silver [is] mine, and the gold [is] mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 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.

In the type of holy things and unclean, he sheweth their sins hindered the work.

10 ¶ 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, 11 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests [concerning] the law, saying, 12 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. 13 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. 14 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. 15 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: 16 Since those [days] were, when [one] came to an heap of twenty [measures], there were [but] ten: when [one] came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty [vessels] out of the press, there were [but] twenty. 17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye [turned] not to me, saith the LORD. 18 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]. 19 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].

God's promise to Zerubbabel.

20 ¶ And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth [day] of the month, saying, 21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; 22 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 that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 23 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.
