And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai Or a "second" F19 time, even on the same day as the former: in the four and twentieth day of the month; of the ninth month Chisleu, ( Haggai 2:10 ) : saying; as follows:
F19 (tynv) "secundo", V. L. Pagninus, Montanus, Junius & Tremellius, Piscator, Cocceius; "secunda vice", Burkius.
“Think about this eighteenth day of December, the day when the foundation of the LORD ’s Temple was laid. Think carefully.
I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn. You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.”
On that same day, December 18, the LORD sent this second message to Haggai:
“Tell Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah, that I am about to shake the heavens and the earth.
I will overthrow royal thrones and destroy the power of foreign kingdoms. I will overturn their chariots and riders. The horses will fall, and their riders will kill each other.
Hebrew On the twenty-fourth day of the [ninth] month; see note on 2:10 .
