1:1

1:1 In the second year of Darius the King, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came by the hand of the prophet Haggai, saying, "Speak to Zorobabel the son of Salathiel, of the tribe of Judah, and to Jesus the son of Josedec, the high priest, saying,

1:2 Thus saith the Lord Almighty, saying, This people say, The time is not come to build the House of the Lord."

The command to rebuild the Lord's House

1:3 And the word of the Lord came by the hand of the prophet Haggai, saying,

1:4 "Is it time for you to dwell in your ceiled houses, whereas our House is desolate?

1:6 Ye have sown much, but brought in little; ye have eaten, and are not satisfied; ye have drunk, and are not satisfied with drink, ye have clothed yourselves, and have not become warm thereby: and he that earns wages hath gathered them into a bag full of holes."

1:7 Thus saith the Lord Almighty; "Consider your ways.
