Haggai 2


1  In the seventh7637 month, in the one259 and twentieth6242 day of the month,2320 came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 by3027 the prophet5030 Haggai,2292 saying,559

2  Speak559 now4994 to413 Zerubbabel2216 the son1121 of Shealtiel,7597 governor6346 of Judah,3063 and to413 Joshua3091 the son1121 of Josedech,3087 the high1419 priest,3548 and to413 the residue7611 of the people,5971 saying,559

3  Who4310 is left7604 among you that834 saw7200 853 this2088 house1004 in her first7223 glory?3519 and how4100 do ye859 see7200 it now?6258 is it not3808 in your eyes5869 in comparison of it3644 as nothing?369

4  Yet now6258 be strong,2388 O Zerubbabel,2216 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and be strong,2388 O Joshua,3091 son1121 of Josedech,3087 the high1419 priest;3548 and be strong,2388 all3605 ye people5971 of the land,776 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and work:6213 for3588 I589 am with854 you, saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts:6635

5  According to 853 the word1697 that834 I covenanted3772 with854 you when ye came out3318 of Egypt,4480 4714 so my spirit7307 remaineth5975 among8432 you: fear3372 ye not.408

6  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Yet5750 once,259 it1931 is a little while,4592 and I589 will shake7493 853 the heavens,8064 and the earth,776 and the sea,3220 and the dry2724 land;

7  And I will shake7493 853 all3605 nations,1471 and the desire2532 of all3605 nations1471 shall come:935 and I will fill4390 853 this2088 house1004 with glory,3519 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

8  The silver3701 is mine, and the gold2091 is mine, saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

9  The glory3519 of this2088 latter314 house1004 shall be1961 greater1419 than4480 of the former,7223 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts:6635 and in this2088 place4725 will I give5414 peace,7965 saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

10  In the four702 and twentieth6242 day of the ninth8671 month, in the second8147 year8141 of Darius,1867 came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 by413 Haggai2292 the prophet,5030 saying,559

11  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Ask7592 now4994 853 the priests3548 concerning the law,8451 saying,559

12  If2005 one376 bear5375 holy6944 flesh1320 in the skirt3671 of his garment,899 and with his skirt3671 do touch5060 413 bread,3899 or pottage,5138 or wine,3196 or oil,8081 or any3605 meat,3978 shall it be holy?6942 And the priests3548 answered6030 and said,559 No.3808

13  Then said559 Haggai,2292 If518 one that is unclean2931 by a dead body5315 touch5060 any3605 of these,428 shall it be unclean?2930 And the priests3548 answered6030 and said,559 It shall be unclean.2930

14  Then answered6030 Haggai,2292 and said,559 So3651 is this2088 people,5971 and so3651 is this2088 nation1471 before6440 me, saith5002 the LORD;3068 and so3651 is every3605 work4639 of their hands;3027 and that which834 they offer7126 there8033 is unclean.2931

15  And now,6258 I pray you,4994 consider7760 3824 from4480 this2088 day3117 and upward,4605 from before4480 2962 a stone68 was laid7760 upon413 a stone68 in the temple1964 of the LORD:3068

16  Since those days were,4480 1961 when one came935 to413 a heap6194 of twenty6242 measures, there were1961 but ten:6235 when one came935 to413 the wine vat3342 for to draw out2834 fifty2572 vessels out of the press,6333 there were1961 but twenty.6242

17  I smote5221 you with blasting7711 and with mildew3420 and with hail1259 in854 all3605 the labors4639 of your hands;3027 yet ye turned not369 to413 me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

18  Consider7760 3824 now4994 from4480 this2088 day3117 and upward,4605 from the four702 and twentieth6242 day4480 3117 of the ninth8671 month, even from4480 the day3117 that834 the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid,3245 1964 3068 consider7760 3824 it.

19  Is the seed2233 yet5750 in the barn?4035 yea, as yet5704 the vine,1612 and the fig tree,8384 and the pomegranate,7416 and the olive2132 tree,6086 hath not3808 brought forth:5375 from4480 this2088 day3117 will I bless1288 you.

20  And again8145 the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 Haggai2292 in the four702 and twentieth6242 day of the month,2320 saying,559

21  Speak559 to413 Zerubbabel,2216 governor6346 of Judah,3063 saying,559 I589 will shake7493 853 the heavens8064 and the earth;776

22  And I will overthrow2015 the throne3678 of kingdoms,4467 and I will destroy8045 the strength2392 of the kingdoms4467 of the heathen;1471 and I will overthrow2015 the chariots,4818 and those that ride7392 in them; and the horses5483 and their riders7392 shall come down,3381 every one376 by the sword2719 of his brother.251

23  In that1931 day,3117 saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 will I take3947 thee, O Zerubbabel,2216 my servant,5650 the son1121 of Shealtiel,7597 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and will make7760 thee as a signet:2368 for3588 I have chosen977 thee, saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635


1 τῷ ἑβδόμῳ μηνὶ μιᾷ καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνὸς ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐν χειρὶ Αγγαιου τοῦ προφήτου λέγων

2 εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς Ζοροβαβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιηλ ἐκ φυλῆς Ιουδα καὶ πρὸς Ἰησοῦν τὸν τοῦ Ιωσεδεκ τὸν ἱερέα τὸν μέγαν καὶ πρὸς πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ λέγων

3 τίς ἐξ ὑμῶν ὃς εἶδεν τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ἐν τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ τῇ ἔμπροσθεν καὶ πῶς ὑμεῖς βλέπετε αὐτὸν νῦν καθὼς οὐχ ὑπάρχοντα ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν

4 καὶ νῦν κατίσχυε Ζοροβαβελ λέγει κύριος καὶ κατίσχυε Ἰησοῦ ὁ τοῦ Ιωσεδεκ ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας καὶ κατισχυέτω πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς λέγει κύριος καὶ ποιεῖτε διότι μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν ἐγώ εἰμι λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ

5 καὶ τὸ πνεῦμά μου ἐφέστηκεν ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν θαρσεῖτε

6 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ ἔτι ἅπαξ ἐγὼ σείσω τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ τὴν ξηράν

7 καὶ συσσείσω πάντα τὰ ἔθνη καὶ ἥξει τὰ ἐκλεκτὰ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν καὶ πλήσω τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον δόξης λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ

8 ἐμὸν τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ ἐμὸν τὸ χρυσίον λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ

9 διότι μεγάλη ἔσται ἡ δόξα τοῦ οἴκου τούτου ἡ ἐσχάτη ὑπὲρ τὴν πρώτην λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ καὶ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ δώσω εἰρήνην λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ καὶ εἰρήνην ψυχῆς εἰς περιποίησιν παντὶ τῷ κτίζοντι τοῦ ἀναστῆσαι τὸν ναὸν τοῦτον

10 τετράδι καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ ἐνάτου μηνὸς ἔτους δευτέρου ἐπὶ Δαρείου ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Αγγαιον τὸν προφήτην λέγων

11 τάδε λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ ἐπερώτησον τοὺς ἱερεῖς νόμον λέγων

12 ἐὰν λάβῃ ἄνθρωπος κρέας ἅγιον ἐν τῷ ἄκρῳ τοῦ ἱματίου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἅψηται τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ ἱματίου αὐτοῦ ἄρτου ἢ ἑψέματος ἢ οἴνου ἢ ἐλαίου ἢ παντὸς βρώματος εἰ ἁγιασθήσεται καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπαν οὔ

13 καὶ εἶπεν Αγγαιος ἐὰν ἅψηται μεμιαμμένος ἐπὶ ψυχῇ ἀπὸ παντὸς τούτων εἰ μιανθήσεται καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπαν μιανθήσεται

14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Αγγαιος καὶ εἶπεν οὕτως ὁ λαὸς οὗτος καὶ οὕτως τὸ ἔθνος τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ λέγει κύριος καὶ οὕτως πάντα τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ὃς ἐὰν ἐγγίσῃ ἐκεῖ μιανθήσεται ἕνεκεν τῶν λημμάτων αὐτῶν τῶν ὀρθρινῶν ὀδυνηθήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου πόνων αὐτῶν καὶ ἐμισεῖτε ἐν πύλαις ἐλέγχοντας

15 καὶ νῦν θέσθε δὴ εἰς τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ὑπεράνω πρὸ τοῦ θεῖναι λίθον ἐπὶ λίθον ἐν τῷ ναῷ κυρίου

16 τίνες ἦτε ὅτε ἐνεβάλλετε εἰς κυψέλην κριθῆς εἴκοσι σάτα καὶ ἐγένετο κριθῆς δέκα σάτα καὶ εἰσεπορεύεσθε εἰς τὸ ὑπολήνιον ἐξαντλῆσαι πεντήκοντα μετρητάς καὶ ἐγένοντο εἴκοσι

17 ἐπάταξα ὑμᾶς ἐν ἀφορίᾳ καὶ ἐν ἀνεμοφθορίᾳ καὶ ἐν χαλάζῃ πάντα τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος

18 ὑποτάξατε δὴ τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐπέκεινα ἀπὸ τῆς τετράδος καὶ εἰκάδος τοῦ ἐνάτου μηνὸς καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἐθεμελιώθη ὁ ναὸς κυρίου θέσθε ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ὑμῶν

19 εἰ ἔτι ἐπιγνωσθήσεται ἐπὶ τῆς ἅλω καὶ εἰ ἔτι ἡ ἄμπελος καὶ ἡ συκῆ καὶ ἡ ῥόα καὶ τὰ ξύλα τῆς ἐλαίας τὰ οὐ φέροντα καρπόν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης εὐλογήσω

20 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου ἐκ δευτέρου πρὸς Αγγαιον τὸν προφήτην τετράδι καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνὸς λέγων

21 εἰπὸν πρὸς Ζοροβαβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιηλ ἐκ φυλῆς Ιουδα λέγων ἐγὼ σείω τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ τὴν ξηρὰν

22 καὶ καταστρέψω θρόνους βασιλέων καὶ ὀλεθρεύσω δύναμιν βασιλέων τῶν ἐθνῶν καὶ καταστρέψω ἅρματα καὶ ἀναβάτας καὶ καταβήσονται ἵπποι καὶ ἀναβάται αὐτῶν ἕκαστος ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ

23 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ λήμψομαί σε Ζοροβαβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιηλ τὸν δοῦλόν μου λέγει κύριος καὶ θήσομαί σε ὡς σφραγῖδα διότι σὲ ᾑρέτισα λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ

1 In die vigesima et quarta mensis, in sexto mense, in anno secundo Darii regis.

2 In septimo mense, vigesima et prima mensis, factum est verbum Domini in manu Aggæi prophetæ, dicens:

3 Loquere ad Zorobabel, filium Salathiel, ducem Juda, et ad Jesum, filium Josedec, sacerdotem magnum, et ad reliquos populi, dicens:

4 [Quis in vobis est derelictus,
qui vidit domum istam in gloria sua prima?
et quid vos videtis hanc nunc?
numquid non ita est, quasi non sit in oculis vestris?

5 Et nunc confortare, Zorobabel, dicit Dominus;
et confortare, Jesu, fili Josedec, sacerdos magne;
et confortare, omnis populus terræ, dicit Dominus exercituum:
et facite (quoniam ego vobiscum sum, dicit Dominus exercituum)

6 verbum quod pepigi vobiscum cum egrederemini de terra Ægypti:
et spiritus meus erit in medio vestrum: nolite timere.

7 Quia hæc dicit Dominus exercituum:
Adhuc unum modicum est,
et ego commovebo cælum, et terram, et mare, et aridam.

8 Et movebo omnes gentes,
et veniet desideratus cunctis gentibus:
et implebo domum istam gloria,
dicit Dominus exercituum.

9 Meum est argentum, et meum est aurum,
dicit Dominus exercituum.

10 Magna erit gloria domus istius novissimæ plus quam primæ,
dicit Dominus exercituum:
et in loco isto dabo pacem,
dicit Dominus exercituum.]

11 In vigesima et quarta noni mensis, in anno secundo Darii regis, factum est verbum Domini ad Aggæum prophetam, dicens:

12 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Interroga sacerdotes legem, dicens:

13 Si tulerit homo carnem sanctificatam in ora vestimenti sui, et tetigerit de summitate ejus panem, aut pulmentum, aut vinum, aut oleum, aut omnem cibum, numquid sanctificabitur? Respondentes autem sacerdotes, dixerunt: Non.

14 Et dixit Aggæus: Si tetigerit pollutus in anima ex omnibus his, numquid contaminabitur? Et responderunt sacerdotes, et dixerunt: Contaminabitur.

15 Et respondit Aggæus, et dixit: [Sic populus iste,
et sic gens ista ante faciem meam, dicit Dominus,
et sic omne opus manuum eorum:
et omnia quæ obtulerunt ibi, contaminata erunt.

16 Et nunc ponite corda vestra a die hac et supra,
antequam poneretur lapis super lapidem in templo Domini.

17 Cum accederetis ad acervum viginti modiorum,
et fierent decem;
et intraretis ad torcular, ut exprimeretis quinquaginta lagenas,
et fiebant viginti.

18 Percussi vos vento urente, et aurugine,
et grandine omnia opera manuum vestrarum:
et non fuit in vobis qui reverteretur ad me, dicit Dominus.

19 Ponite corda vestra ex die ista, et in futurum,
a die vigesima et quarta noni mensis:
a die qua fundamenta jacta sunt templi Domini,
ponite super cor vestrum.

20 Numquid jam semen in germine est,
et adhuc vinea, et ficus,
et malogranatum, et lignum olivæ non floruit? ex die ista benedicam.]

21 Et factum est verbum Domini secundo ad Aggæum in vigesima et quarta mensis, dicens:

22 Loquere ad Zorobabel ducem Juda, dicens: [Ego movebo cælum pariter et terram,

23 et subvertam solium regnorum,
et conteram fortitudinem regni gentium:
et subvertam quadrigam et ascensorem ejus,
et descendent equi, et ascensores eorum,
vir in gladio fratris sui.

24 In die illa, dicit Dominus exercituum, assumam te,
Zorobabel, fili Salathiel, serve meus, dicit Dominus:
et ponam te quasi signaculum,
quia te elegi, dicit Dominus exercituum.]

Next: Zechariah 1
