Do not fear.'14 6 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while15 I will once more shake the heavens and the earth,16 the sea and the dry land. 7 I will shake all nations, and the desired17 of all nations will come, and I will fill this house18 with glory,19' says the LORD Almighty. 8 'The silver is mine and the gold20 is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty. 9 'The glory21 of this present house22 will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the LORD Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,23' declares the LORD Almighty."
