The Word of the LORD came the second time to Haggai in the twenty-fourth day of the month, saying,
"Speak to Zerubbavel, governor of Yehudah, saying, 'I will shake the heavens and the eretz.
I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms. I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations. I will overthrow the chariots, and those who ride in them. The horses and their riders will come down, everyone by the sword of his brother.
In that day, says the LORD of Hosts, will I take you, Zerubbavel, my servant, the son of She'alti'el,' says the LORD, 'and will make you as a signet, for I have chosen you,' says the LORD of Hosts."
