1 H8147 In the second H8141 year H1867 of Darius H4428 the king H8345 , in the sixth H2320 month H259 , in the first H3117 day H2320 of the month H1697 , came the word H3068 of the LORD H3027 by H2292 Haggai H5030 the prophet H2216 to Zerubbabel H1121 the son H7597 of Shealtiel H6346 , governor H3063 of Judah H3091 , and to Joshua H1121 the son H3087 of Josedech H1419 , the high H3548 priest H559 [H8800] , saying,
2 H559 [H8804] Thus speaketh H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H559 [H8800] , saying H5971 , This people H559 [H8804] say H6256 , The time H935 [H8800] is not come H6256 , the time H3068 that the LORD'S H1004 house H1129 [H8736] should be built.
3 H1697 Then came the word H3068 of the LORD H3027 by H2292 Haggai H5030 the prophet H559 [H8800] , saying,
4 H6256 Is it time H3427 [H8800] for you, O ye, to dwell H5603 [H8803] in your panelled H1004 houses H1004 , and this house H2720 lie waste?
5 H559 [H8804] Now therefore thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H7760 H3824 [H8798] ; Consider H1870 your ways.
6 H2232 [H8804] Ye have sown H7235 [H8687] much H935 [H8687] , and bring H4592 in little H398 [H8800] ; ye eat H7654 , but ye have not enough H8354 [H8800] ; ye drink H7937 [H8800] , but ye are not filled with drink H3847 [H8800] ; ye clothe H2527 yourselves, but there is none warm H7936 [H8693] ; and he that earneth wages H7936 [H8693] earneth wages H6872 to put it into a bag H5344 [H8803] with holes.
7 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H7760 H3824 [H8798] ; Consider H1870 your ways.
8 H5927 [H8798] Go up H2022 to the mountain H935 [H8689] , and bring H6086 wood H1129 [H8798] , and build H1004 the house H7521 [H8799] ; and I will take pleasure H3513 [H8735] in it, and I will be glorified H559 [H8804] , saith H3068 the LORD.
9 H6437 [H8800] Ye looked H7235 [H8687] for much H4592 , and, lo, it came to little H935 [H8689] ; and when ye brought H1004 it home H5301 [H8804] , I did blow H5002 [H8803] upon it. Why? saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H3282 . Because H1004 of my house H2720 that is waste H7323 [H8801] , and ye run H376 every man H1004 to his own house.
10 H8064 Therefore the heavens H3607 [H8804] over you withhold H2919 the dew H776 , and the earth H3607 [H8804] withholdeth H2981 her fruit.
11 H7121 [H8799] And I called H2721 for a drought H776 upon the land H2022 , and upon the mountains H1715 , and upon the grain H8492 , and upon the new wine H3323 , and upon the oil H127 , and upon that which the ground H3318 [H8686] bringeth forth H120 , and upon men H929 , and upon cattle H3018 , and upon all the labour H3709 of the hands.
12 H2216 Then Zerubbabel H1121 the son H7597 of Shealtiel H3091 , and Joshua H1121 the son H3087 of Josedech H1419 , the high H3548 priest H7611 , with all the remnant H5971 of the people H8085 [H8799] , obeyed H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 their God H1697 , and the words H2292 of Haggai H5030 the prophet H3068 , as the LORD H430 their God H7971 [H8804] had sent H5971 him, and the people H3372 [H8799] did fear H6440 before H3068 the LORD.
13 H559 [H8799] Then spoke H2292 Haggai H3068 the LORD'S H4397 messenger H3068 in the LORD'S H4400 message H5971 to the people H559 [H8800] , saying H5002 [H8803] , I am with you, saith H3068 the LORD.
14 H3068 And the LORD H5782 [H8686] stirred up H7307 the spirit H2216 of Zerubbabel H1121 the son H7597 of Shealtiel H6346 , governor H3063 of Judah H7307 , and the spirit H3091 of Joshua H1121 the son H3087 of Josedech H1419 , the high H3548 priest H7307 , and the spirit H7611 of all the remnant H5971 of the people H935 [H8799] ; and they came H6213 [H8799] and did H4399 work H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 , their God,
