Then Zerubbabel1 son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant2 of the people obeyed3 the voice of the LORD their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the LORD their God had sent him. And the people feared4 the LORD.
Then Haggai,5 the LORD's messenger,6 gave this message of the LORD to the people: "I am with7 you," declares the LORD.
So the LORD stirred up8 the spirit of Zerubbabel9 son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jehozadak,10 the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant11 of the people. They came and began to work on the house of the LORD Almighty, their God,
on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month12 in the second year of King Darius.13
