Haggai 2

2:1 In the seventh [month], in the one and twentieth [day] of
 the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai,
2:2 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,
2:3 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?
2:4 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:
2:5 [According to] the word that I covenanted with you when ye
 came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye
2:6 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];
2:7 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.
2:8 The silver [is] mine, and the gold [is] mine, saith the LORD
 of hosts.
2:9 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.
2:10 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,
2:11 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Ask now the priests
 [concerning] the law, saying,
2:12 If one shall bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment,
 and with his skirt shall touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or
 oil, or any food, shall it be holy? And the priests answered
 and said, No.
2:13 Then said Haggai, If [one that is] unclean by a dead body
 shall touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests
 answered and said, It shall be unclean.
2:14 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]
2:15 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
2:16 Since those [days] were, when [one] came to a heap of
 twenty [measures], there were [but] ten: when [one] came to the
 press-vat to draw out fifty [vessels] out of the press, there
 were [but] twenty.
2:17 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.
2:18 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].
2:19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yes, 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].
2:20 And again the word of the LORD came to Haggai in the four
 and twentieth [day] of the month, saying,
2:21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will
 shake the heavens and the earth;
2:22 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.
2:23 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.
