Ask them, ‘Who of you is left who saw this housez in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?a But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord. ‘Be strong,b Joshua son of Jozadak,c the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am withd you,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘This is what I covenantede with you when you came out of Egypt.f And my Spiritg remains among you. Do not fear.’h
