1 The call to rebuild the temple
1 In Ezra 4:24the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord [a]by Haggai the prophet unto 1 Chr. 3:17Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, [b]governor of Judah, and to Ezra 5:2Joshua the son of 1 Chr. 6:15Josedech the high priest, saying,
2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.
3 Then came the word of the Lord Ezra 5:1by Haggai the prophet, saying,
6 Ye have Deut. 28:38sown much, and bring in little; 6 Ye eat, but ye have not enough; 6 Ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; 6 Ye clothe you, but there is none warm; 6 And Zech. 8:10he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag [d]with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
9 ch. 2:16Ye looked for much, and lo, it came to little; 9 And when ye brought it home, ch. 2:17I did [e]blow upon it. 9 Why? saith the Lord of hosts. 9 Because of mine house that is waste, 9 And ye run every man unto his own house.
11 And I 1 Ki. 17:1;2 Ki. 8:1called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, 11 And upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, 11 And upon that which the ground bringeth forth, 11 And upon men, and upon cattle, and ch. 2:17upon all the labour of the hands.
12 Ezra 5:2Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech the high priest, with all 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 did fear before the Lord.
13 Then spake Haggai the Lord's messenger in the Lord's message unto the people, saying, Mat. 28:20;Rom. 8:31I am with you, saith the Lord.
14 And 2 Chr. 36:22;Ezra 1:1the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, ch. 2:21governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; Ezra 5:2,8and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God,
15 In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
