World English Bible
Previous Chapter Previous Verse Full Chapter Next Verse Next Chapter
2 "This is what Yahweh of Hosts says: These people say, `The time hasn`t yet come, the time for Yahweh`s house to be built.`"
3 Then the Word of Yahweh came by Haggai, the prophet, saying,
4 "Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies waste?
5 Now therefore this is what Yahweh of Hosts says: Consider your ways.
6 You have sown much, and bring in little. You eat, but you don`t have enough. You drink, but you aren`t filled with drink. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm, and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes in it."
7 This is what Yahweh of Hosts says: "Consider your ways.
8 Go up to the mountain, bring wood, and build the house. I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified," says Yahweh.
