Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried , saying , Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear , nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD.
And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
But they refused to hearken , and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear .
Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried , and they would not hear ; so they cried , and I would not hear , saith the LORD of hosts:
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong , ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid , that the temple might be built .
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew , saying , We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
