Haggai 2

NIRV 1 A second message came to me from the Lord. It came on the 21st day of the seventh month. The LORD said, NIV 1 on the twenty-first day of the seventh month, the word of the LORD came through the prophet Haggai: NIRV 2 "Speak to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah and the son of Shealtiel. Also speak to the high priest Jeshua, the son of Jehozadak. And speak to all of my people who are still left alive. Ask them, NIV 2 “Speak to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, to Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people. Ask them, NIRV 3 'Did any of you who are here see how beautiful this temple used to be? How does it look to you now? It doesn't look so good, does it? NIV 3 ‘Who of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing? NIRV 4 " 'But be strong, Zerubbabel,' announces the Lord. 'Be strong, Jeshua. Be strong, all of you people in the land,' announces the Lord. 'Start rebuilding. I am with you,' announces the LORD who rules over all. NIV 4 But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the LORD. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the LORD Almighty. NIRV 5 'That is what I promised you when you came out of Egypt. My Spirit continues to be with you. So do not be afraid.' " NIV 5 ‘This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’ NIRV 6 The LORD says, "In a little while I will shake the heavens and the earth once more. I will also shake the ocean and the dry land. NIV 6 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. NIRV 7 I will shake all of the nations. Then what they consider to be priceless will come to my temple. And I will fill the temple with glory," says the LORD who rules over all. NIV 7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. NIRV 8 "The silver belongs to me. So does the gold," announces the LORD. NIV 8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. NIRV 9 "The new temple will be more beautiful than the first one was," says the Lord. "And in this place I will give peace to my people," announces the LORD who rules over all. NIV 9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” NIRV 10 A third message came to me from the Lord. It came on the 24th day of the ninth month of the second year that Darius was king. NIV 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: NIRV 11 The LORD who rules over all speaks. He says, "Ask the priests what the law says. NIV 11 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Ask the priests what the law says: NIRV 12 Suppose someone carries holy meat in the clothes he is wearing. And the clothes touch some bread or stew. Or they touch some wine, olive oil or other food. Then do those things also become holy?" The priests answered, "No." NIV 12 If someone carries consecrated meat in the fold of their garment, and that fold touches some bread or stew, some wine, olive oil or other food, does it become consecrated?’ ” The priests answered, “No.” NIRV 13 So I said, "Suppose someone is made 'unclean' by touching a dead body. And then he touches one of those things. Does it become 'unclean' too?" "Yes," the priests replied. "It does." NIV 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.” NIRV 14 Then I said, "The LORD announces, 'That is how I look at these people and this nation. Anything they do and anything they sacrifice on the altar is "unclean." NIV 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. NIRV 15 " 'Now think carefully about the time before one stone was laid on top of another in my temple. NIV 15 “ ‘Now give careful thought to this from this day on —consider how things were before one stone was laid on another in the LORD’s temple. NIRV 16 People went to get 20 measures of grain. But they could find only 10. They went to where the wine was stored to get 50 measures. But only 20 were there. NIV 16 When anyone came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty. NIRV 17 You worked very hard to produce all of those things. But I struck them with rot, mold and hail. And you still did not turn to me,' announces the Lord. NIV 17 I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail, yet you did not return to me,’ declares the LORD. NIRV 18 " 'It is the 24th day of the ninth month. From this day on, think carefully about the day when the foundation of my temple was laid. Think about it carefully. NIV 18 ‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the LORD’s temple was laid. Give careful thought: NIRV 19 Are any seeds still left in your barns? Until now, your vines and fig trees have not produced any fruit. Your pomegranate and olive trees have not produced any either. " 'But from this day on I will bless you.' " NIV 19 Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. “ ‘From this day on I will bless you.’ ” NIRV 20 A final message came to me from the Lord. It also came on the 24th day of the ninth month. He said, NIV 20 The word of the LORD came to Haggai a second time on the twenty-fourth day of the month: NIRV 21 "Speak to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah. Tell him I will shake the heavens and the earth. NIV 21 “Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. NIRV 22 I will throw down royal thrones. I will smash the power of other kingdoms. I will destroy chariots and their drivers. Horses and their riders will fall. They will be killed with the swords of their relatives. NIV 22 I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms. I will overthrow chariots and their drivers; horses and their riders will fall, each by the sword of his brother. NIRV 23 " 'Zerubbabel, at that time I will pick you,' announces the Lord. 'You are my servant,' announces the Lord. 'You will be like a ring that has my royal seal on it. I have chosen you,' announces the LORD who rules over all." NIV 23 “ ‘On that day,’ declares the LORD Almighty, ‘I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”
