Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua
son of Jozadak
Whose spirits were stirred up and quickened by the ministry of the prophets, the Lord accompanying it by his Spirit, ( Haggai 1:12 Haggai 1:14 ) ,
and began to build the house of God which is at
to go on with the building of it; for they had laid the foundation before, and perhaps had carried it up to some little height, at least, before they ceased from it, ( Ezra 3:10 )
and with them were the prophets of God helping
with words of counsel, comfort, and exhortation, directing and encouraging them, and promising them protection and success: these are the prophets before named.
