Encouraging the people

1 On the twenty-first day of the seventh month, the LORD's word came through Haggai the prophet: 2 Say to Judah's Governor Zerubbabel, Shealtiel's son, and to the Chief Priest Joshua, Jehozadak's son, and to the rest of the people: 3 Who among you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Doesn't it appear as nothing to you? 4 So now, be strong, Zerubbabel, says the LORD. Be strong, High Priest Joshua, Jehozadak's son, and be strong, all you people of the land, says the LORD. Work, for I am with you, says the LORD of heavenly forces. 5 As with our agreement when you came out of Egypt, my spirit stands in your midst. Don't fear. 6 This is what the LORD of heavenly forces says: In just a little while, I will make the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land quake. 7 I will make all the nations quake. The wealth of all the nations will come. I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of heavenly forces. 8 The silver and the gold belong to me, says the LORD of heavenly forces. 9 This house will be more glorious than its predecessor, says the LORD of heavenly forces. I will provide prosperity in this place, says the LORD of heavenly forces.
