Haggai 1


1:1 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 to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor
 of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest,
 saying,
1:2 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.
1:3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet,
 saying,
1:4 [Is it] time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses,
 and this house [lie] waste?
1:5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your
 ways.
1:6 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 yourselves, but there is none warm; and he that earneth
 wages earneth wages [to put it] into a bag with holes.
1:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
1:8 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.
1:9 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 my house that [is] waste, and ye run every
 man to his own house.
1:10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the
 earth is stayed [from] her fruit.
1:11 And I called for a drouth 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 labor of the hands.
1:12 Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of
 Josedech, 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.
1:13 Then spoke Haggai the LORD'S messenger in the LORD'S
 message to the people, saying, I [am] with you, saith the LORD.
1:14 And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of
 Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son
 of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant
 of the people; and they came and performed work in the house of
 the LORD of hosts, their God,
1:15 In the four and twentieth day of the same month, in the
 second year of Darius the king.
