1In the seventh [month], on the twenty-first of the month, a word of YHWH has been by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying, 2“Now speak to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying, 3Who among you has been left that saw this house in its former glory? And what are you seeing it now? Is it not, compared with it, as nothing in your eyes? 4And now, be strong, O Zerubbabel,” "" A declaration of YHWH, "" “And be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest, "" And be strong, all you people of the land,” "" A declaration of YHWH, "" “And do, for I [am] with you,” "" A declaration of YHWH of Hosts. 5“The thing that I covenanted with you, "" In your coming forth from Egypt, "" And My Spirit is remaining in your midst, do not fear.” 6For thus said YHWH of Hosts: “Yet once more—it [is] a little, "" And I am shaking the heavens and the earth, "" And the sea, and the dry land, 7And I have shaken all the nations, "" And they have come [to] the desire of all the nations, "" And I have filled this house [with] glory,” said YHWH of Hosts. 8“The silver [is] Mine, and the gold [is] Mine,” "" A declaration of YHWH of Hosts. 9“Greater is the glory of this latter house, "" Than of the former,” said YHWH of Hosts, "" “And I give peace in this place,” "" A declaration of YHWH of Hosts.

10On the twenty-fourth of the ninth [month], in the second year of Darius, a word of YHWH has been by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying, 11Thus said YHWH of Hosts: “Now ask the priests of the Law, saying, 12Behold, [when] one carries holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and he has come with his skirt against the bread, or against the stew, or against the wine, or against the oil, or against any food—is it holy?” And the priests answer and say, “No.” 13And Haggai says, “If the unclean of body comes against any of these, is it unclean?” And the priests answer and say, “It is unclean.” 14And Haggai answers and says, “So [is] this people, and so [is] this nation before Me,” a declaration of YHWH, “and so [is] every work of their hands, and that which they bring near there—it is unclean. 15And now, please lay [it] to your heart, "" From this day and onward, "" Before the laying of stone to stone in the temple of YHWH. 16From that time [one] has come to a heap of twenty, "" And it has been ten, "" He has come to the wine vat to draw out fifty measures, "" And it has been twenty. 17I have struck you with blasting, "" And with mildew, and with hail—All the work of your hands, "" And there is none of you with Me,” "" A declaration of YHWH. 18“Now set [it] to your heart, from this day and onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth [month], even from the day that the temple of YHWH has been founded, set [it] to your heart. 19Is the seed yet in the barn? And until now the vine and the fig, "" And the pomegranate, and the olive-tree, "" Have not borne—from this day I bless.”

20And there is a word of YHWH a second time to Haggai, on the twenty-fourth of the month, saying, 21“Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah, saying, I am shaking the heavens and the earth, 22And have overturned the throne of kingdoms, "" And I have destroyed the strength of kingdoms of the nations, "" And overturned chariot and its charioteers, "" And horses and their riders have come down, "" Each by the sword of his brother. 23In that day,” a declaration of YHWH of Hosts, "" “I take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,” "" A declaration of YHWH, "" “And have set you as a signet, "" For I have fixed on you,” "" A declaration of YHWH of Hosts!
