“Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying;”
King James Version (KJV)
1. In the second yeere of Darius the king, in the sixt moneth, in the first day of the moneth came the worde of the Lord by Haggai the Prophet vnto Zerubbabel the sonne of Shealtiel, gouernour of Iudah, and to Iosuah the sonne of Iosedech the high priest, saying; 2. Thus speaketh the Lord of hostes, saying; This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lords house should be built. 3. Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying; 4. Is it time for you, O yee, to dwell in your sieled houses, and this house lie waste? 5. Nowe therefore thus saith the Lord of hostes; Consider your wayes. 6. Yee haue sowen much and bring in litle: ye eate, but ye haue not inough: yee drinke, but yee are not filled with drinke: yee cloth you, but there is none warme: and hee that earneth wages, earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
