A Call to Rebuild the Temple

1On August 29 of the second year of King Darius’s reign, the Lord gave a message through the prophet Haggai to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest.H8147H8141H1867H4428H8345H2320H259H3117H2320H1697H3068H3027H2292H5030H2216H1121H7597H6346H3063H3091H1121H3087H1419H3548H559 2“This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: The people are saying, ‘The time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the Lord.’”H559H3068H6635H559H5971H559H6256H935H6256H3068H1004H1129 3Then the Lord sent this message through the prophet Haggai:H1697H3068H3027H2292H5030H559 4“Why are you living in luxurious houses while my house lies in ruins?H6256H3427H5603H1004H1004H2720 5This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: Look at what’s happening to you!H559H3068H6635H7760H3824H1870 6You have planted much but harvest little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but cannot keep warm. Your wages disappear as though you were putting them in pockets filled with holes!H2232H7235H935H4592H398H7654H8354H7937H3847H2527H7936H7936H6872H5344 7“This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: Look at what’s happening to you!H559H3068H6635H7760H3824H1870 8Now go up into the hills, bring down timber, and rebuild my house. Then I will take pleasure in it and be honored, says the Lord.H5927H2022H935H6086H1129H1004H7521H3513H559H3068 9You hoped for rich harvests, but they were poor. And when you brought your harvest home, I blew it away. Why? Because my house lies in ruins, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, while all of you are busy building your own fine houses.H6437H7235H4592H935H1004H5301H5002H3068H6635H3282H1004H2720H7323H376H1004 10It’s because of you that the heavens withhold the dew and the earth produces no crops.H8064H3607H2919H776H3607H2981 11I have called for a drought on your fields and hills—a drought to wither the grain and grapes and olive trees and all your other crops, a drought to starve you and your livestock and to ruin everything you have worked so hard to get.”H7121H2721H776H2022H1715H8492H3323H127H3318H120H929H3018H3709

Obedience to God’s Call

12Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of God’s people began to obey the message from the Lord their God. When they heard the words of the prophet Haggai, whom the Lord their God had sent, the people feared the Lord.H2216H1121H7597H3091H1121H3087H1419H3548H7611H5971H8085H6963H3068H430H1697H2292H5030H3068H430H7971H5971H3372H6440H3068 13Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave the people this message from the Lord: “I am with you, says the Lord!”H559H2292H3068H4397H3068H4400H5971H559H5002H3068 14So the Lord sparked the enthusiasm of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the enthusiasm of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God’s people. They began to work on the house of their God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies,H3068H5782H7307H2216H1121H7597H6346H3063H7307H3091H1121H3087H1419H3548H7307H7611H5971H935H6213H4399H1004H3068H6635H430 15on September 21 of the second year of King Darius’s reign.H702H6242H3117H8345H2320H8147H8141H1867H4428
