Haggai 2 ©
Haggai encourageth the people to the work by promise of greater glory to the second temple than was in the first. Under the type of things holy and unclean he showeth that their sins had kept back God's blessings, which he promiseth them from that time. God's promise to Zerubbabel.
Yet gnow be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and hwork: for iI am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:
For thus saith the LORD of hosts; lYet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the mheavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
And I will shake nall nations, and othe desire of all nations shall come: and pI will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
rThe glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place swill I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
¶And jagain the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
And mI will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, nevery one by the sword of his brother.
In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee oas a signet: for I have pchosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.
