Says the Lord You looked for much but indeed it came To little And when you brought it home I blew it Away Why says the Lord of hosts Because of my house that is in Ruins While every one of you runs to his own House Therefore the heavens above you withhold The Dew and the Earth withholds its Fruit For I called for a drought on the land And the mountains on the Grain and the New wine and the oil On whatever the ground brings forth on Men and livestock and on all the labor Of your hands Then zerubbabel the son of shiatil and Joshua the son of jehoshadakh the high Priest with all the remnant of the People obeyed the voice of the Lord Their God and the words of haggai the Prophet As the Lord their God had sent him And the people feared the presence of The Lord Then haggai the Lord's messenger spoke The Lord's message to the people saying I am with you says the Lord So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shield governor of Judah And the spirit of Joshua the son of

Jehoshadakh the high priest and the Spirit of all the remnant of the people And they came and worked on the house of The Lord of hosts their God On the 24th day of the sixth month in The second year of King Darius
