Main point summary
Consider your ways, seek first the pleasure and glory of God, and know that despite your unfaithfulness, I am with you says the Lord of host.
Discourse 1:1-15
Haggai 1:1-15
a In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month,
In the second year of the reign of king Darius, on the first day of the sixth month,
the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet to b Zerubbabel the son of c Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to d Joshua the son of e Jehozadak, the high priest:
the word of the Lord came through the agency of Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest saying:
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
"The reigning Lord over all says this:
These people say
“These people have said,
the time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the Lord .”
‘The time for rebuilding the Lord’s temple has not yet come.’
Then the word of the Lord came f by the hand of Haggai the prophet,
Then the Lord responded to the people through the agency of Haggai the prophet, saying,
g “Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses,
“Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your richly houses
while h this house lies in ruins?
while the house of the Lord lies in ruins?”
Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts:
So then the Lord who reigns over all says,
i Consider your ways.
"Consider your ways!"
j You have sown much,
Notice that even though you have sown much,
and harvested little.
you harvested little,
k You eat,
though you eat,
but you never have enough;
your hunger never goes away,
you drink,
though you drink,
but you never have your fill.
you're never satisfied,
You clothe yourselves,
though you clothe yourselves,
but no one is warm.
it never gives warmth,
And he who l earns wages does so
and though you toil to earn,
to put them into a bag with holes.
you receive wages only to waste it away.
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
i Consider your ways.
Go up to the hills
and bring wood
and build the house,
that m I may take pleasure in it
and that n I may be glorified,
says the Lord .
j You looked for much,
and behold,
it came to little.
And when you brought it home,
o I blew it away.
declares the Lord of hosts.
Because of my house h that lies in ruins,
while each of you busies himself with his own house.
Therefore p the heavens above you have withheld the dew,
and the earth has withheld its produce.
And q I have called for a drought on the land and the hills, on r the grain, the new wine, the oil, on what the ground brings forth, on man and beast, and s on all their labors.”
t Then u Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and u Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all v the remnant of the people, obeyed 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 feared the Lord .
Then Haggai, the messenger of the Lord , spoke to the people with the Lord ’s message,
w “I am with you, declares the Lord .”
And x the Lord stirred up the spirit of u Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of y Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all z the remnant of the people.
And they came
and a worked on the house of the Lord of hosts, their God,
b on the twenty-fourth day of the month, in the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
