“Therefore the heauen ouer you is stayed from dew, and the earth is staied from her fruite.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. ¶ Thus saith the Lord of hostes, Consider your wayes. 8. Goe vp to the mountaine, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord. 9. Ye looked for much, and loe it came to litle: and when yee brought it home, I did blow vpon it: Why, saith the Lord of hostes? because of mine house that is waste, and yee runne euery man vnto his owne house. 10. Therefore the heauen ouer you is stayed from dew, and the earth is staied from her fruite. 11. And I called for a drought vpon the land and vpon the mountaines, and vpon the corne, and vpon the new wine, and vpon the oyle, and vpon that which the ground bringeth forth, & vpon men, and vpon cattell, and vpon all the labour of the hands. 12. ¶ Then Zerubbabel the sonne of Shealtiel, and Iosuah the sonne of Iosedech the high priest, with all the remnant of the people obeyed the voyce of the Lord their God, and the words of Haggai the Prophet (as the Lord their God had sent him) and the people did feare before the Lord. 13. Then spake Haggai the Lords messenger in the Lords message vnto the people, saying; I am with you, saith the Lord.
