Haggai Begins Temple Building

1 In the second R1 year of Darius the king, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the LORD came by the prophet Haggai R2 to Zerubbabel R3 the son of Shealtiel, governor R4 of Judah, and to Joshua R5 the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, 2 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, F1 `This people says, "The time has not come, even the time for the house of the LORD to be rebuilt.""' 3 Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 "Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses while this house lies R6 desolate?" 5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider F2 your ways! 6 "You have sown R7 much, but harvest F3 little; you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied; you drink, but there is not F4 enough to become drunk; you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes."

7 Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider F5 your ways! 8 "Go up to the mountains, F6 bring wood and rebuild R8 the temple, F7 that I may be pleased R9 with it and be glorified," R10 says the LORD. 9 "You R11 look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow R12 it away. Why?" declares the LORD of hosts, "Because of My house which lies R13 desolate, while each of you runs to his own house. 10 "Therefore, because of you the sky R14 has withheld its F8 dew and the earth has withheld its produce. 11 "I called for a drought R15 on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on men, R16 on cattle, and on all R17 the labor of your F9 hands."

12 Then Zerubbabel R18 the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua R19 the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed R20 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 showed R21 F10 reverence for the LORD. 13 Then Haggai, the messenger R22 of the LORD, spoke by F11 the commission of the LORD to the people saying, " `I R23 am with you,' declares the LORD." 14 So the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel R24 the son of Shealtiel, governor R24 of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant R25 of the people; and they came and worked R26 on the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, 15 on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month in the second year of Darius the king.
