Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
10 On the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month in the second year of Darius, the LORD's word came to Haggai the prophet: 10 On the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to the prophet Haggai:
11 This is what the LORD of heavenly forces says: Go ahead and ask the priests for a ruling: 11 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Ask the priests what the law says:
12 "If someone lifts holy meat into the hem of one's garment and that hem touches bread, stew, wine, oil, or any kind of food, will it be made holy?" And the priests responded, "No." 12 If a person carries consecrated meat in the fold of his garment, and that fold touches some bread or stew, some wine, oil or other food, does it become consecrated?' " The priests answered, "No."
13 Haggai said, "If an unclean person touches any of these things, will it become unclean?" And the priests responded, "It will be unclean." 13 Then Haggai said, "If a person defiled by contact with a dead body touches one of these things, does it become defiled?" "Yes," the priests replied, "it becomes defiled."
14 Then Haggai responded: Thus has this people and this nation become to me, says the LORD, and everything that they do with their hands. Whatever they offer is unclean. 14 Then Haggai said, " 'So it is with this people and this nation in my sight,' declares the LORD. 'Whatever they do and whatever they offer there is defiled.
