2 aIn the seventh month, ain the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the Lord †by the prophet Haggai, saying, 2 Speak now to bZerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, bgovernor of Judah, and to bJoshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to cthe residue of the people, saying,
And how do ye see it now?
fIs it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?
For iI am with you, saith the Lord of hosts:
And pI will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
8 uThe silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.
10 aIn the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, bin the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord bby Haggai the prophet, saying, 11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; cAsk now the priests concerning the law, saying, 12 If one bear dholy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, eNo. 13 Then said Haggai, If one that is funclean by a dead body gtouch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, gIt shall be unclean. 14 Then answered Haggai, and said,
And so is pevery work of their hands;
And that which they offer there is unclean.
From before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
When one came to mthe pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
In pall the labours of your hands;
Yet ye qturned not to me, saith the Lord.
rFrom the four and twentieth day of the ninth month,
Yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth:
xI will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And yI will overthrow the throne of kingdoms,
And yI will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen;
And zI will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them;
And the horses and their riders shall come down,
aEvery one by the sword of his brother.
And will make thee cas a signet:
