In the seventh month, in the twenty-first day of the month, the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai the prophet, saying,
"Speak now to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying,
'Who is left among you who saw this house in its former glory? How do you see it now? Isn't it in your eyes as nothing?
Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says Yahweh. 'Be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,' says Yahweh, 'and work, for I am with you,' says Yahweh of Hosts.
This is the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, and my Spirit lived among you. Don't be afraid.'
For this is what Yahweh of Hosts says: 'Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land;
and I will shake all nations. The precious things of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory, says Yahweh of Hosts.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,' says Yahweh of Hosts.
'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,' says Yahweh of Hosts; 'and in this place will I give peace,' says Yahweh of Hosts."
