nant of the house of Judah ; they shall feed
thereupon : in the houses of Ashkelon shall
they lie down in the evening : || for the Lord
their God shall "visit them, and "turn away
their captivity.

8 Ifpl have heard the reproach of Moab,
and ithe revilings of the children of Ammon,
whereby they have reproached my people, and
■■magnified themselves against their border.

9 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord of
hosts, the God of Israel, Surely "Moab shall
be as Sodom, and 'the children of Ammon
as Gomorrah, "even the breeding of nettles,
and salt-pits, and a perpetual desolation :
^ the residue of my people shall spoil them,
and the remnant of my people shall possess
them,

10 This shall they have yfor their pride,
because they have reproached and magnified
themselves against the people of the Lord of
hosts.

11 The Lord will be terrible unto them;
for he will t famish all the gods of the earth;
" and men shall worship him, every one from
his place, even all "the isles of the heathen.

12 ir*" Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain
by "my sword.

13 And he will stretch out his hand
against the north, and •»* destroy Assyria ; and
will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like
a wilderness.

14 And ^flocks shall lie down in the midst
of her, all ''the beasts of the nations : both
the II s cormorant and the bittern shall lodge
in the || upper Ijntels of it ; their voice shall
sing in the windows ; desolation shall be in
the thresholds: ||for he shall uncover the
■^ cedar work.

15 This is the rejoicing city 'that dwelt
carelessly, ''that said in her heart, I am, and
there is none beside me : how is she become
a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in !
every one thatpasseth by her 'shall hiss, and
■" wag his hand.

1 A sharp reproof of Jerusalem for divert sins. 8 An
exhortation to wait for the restoration of Israel, 14 and
to rejoice for their salvation by God.

O to lit her that is filthy and polluted,
to the oppressing city !

2 She "obeyed not the voice; she ''re-
ceived not II correction ; she trusted not in
the Lord ; she drew not near to her God.

3 "Her princes within her are roaring
lions; her judges are '' evening wolves ; they
gnaw not the bones till the morrow.

4 Her "prophets are light awd treacherous
persons : her priests have polluted the sanc-
tuary, they have done '"violence to the law.

Jerusalem sharply reproved.

5 8 The just Lord ^is in the midst there-
of; he will not do iniquity : f every morning
doth he bring his judgment to light, he
faileth not; but 'the unjust knoweth no
shame.

6 I have cut off" the nations : their || tow-
ers are desolate; I made their streets waste,
that none passeth by: their cities are de-
stroyed, so that there is no man, that there
is none inhabitant.

7 ''I said. Surely thou wilt fear me, thou
wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling
should not be cut off", howsoever I punished
them : but they rose early, and ' corrupted
all their doings.

8 IT'Thercfore, ■" waitye upon me, saith the
Lord, until the day that I rise up to the
prey : for my determination is to "gather the
nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms,
to pour upon them mine indignation, even all
my fierce anger : for all the earth ° shall be
devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the people Pa
pure t language, that they may all call upon
the name of the Lord, to serve him with one
t consent.

10 "J From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
my suppliants, even the daughter of my dis-
persed, shall bring mine offering.

11 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed
for all thy doings, wherein thou hast trans-
gressed against me : for then I will take away
out of the midst of thee them that ■■ rejoice
in thy prid^, and thou shalt no more be
haughty t because of my holy mountain^

12 I will also leave in the midst of thee
= an afflicted and poor people, and they shall
trust in the name of the Lord.

13 'The remnant of Israel "shall not do
iniquity, ^nor speak lies; neither shall a de-
ceitful tongue be found in their mouth : for
ythey shall feed and lie down, and none shall
make them afraid.

14 U^Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout,
O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the
heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

15 The Lord hath taken away thy judg-
ments, he hath cast out thine enemy : "the
King of Israel, e?;e?z the Lord, ^is in the midst
of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

16 In that day "it shall be said to Jerusa-
lem, Fear thou not : and to Zion, <> Let not
thine hands be || slack.

17 The Lord thy God "in the midst of
thee is mighty ; he will save, ""he willrejoipe
over thee with joy ; t he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.

18 I will gather them that sare sorrowful
for the solemn assembly, who arc of thee, to
whom fthe reproach of it was a burden.

Israel exhorted to rejoice

19 Behold, at that time I will undo all

and 1 1 will get them praise and fame in every
land t where they have been put to shame..

HAGGAI.



CHAP. I.

1 Haggai reproveth the people for neglecting the building
of the hotise. 7 He inciteth them to the building. 12
He promiseth God's assistance to them being forward.

IN ^the second year of Darius the king, in
the sixth month, in the first day of the
month, came the word of the Lord fby
Haggai the prophet unto ''Zerubbabel the
son of Shealtiel, || governor of Judah, and to
■^Joshuatheson of "^ Josedech,the high priest,
saying,

.2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts,
saying, This people say, The time is not
come, the time that the Lord's house should
be built.

3 Then came the word of the Lord «by
Haggai the prophet, saying,

4 ^Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in
your ceiled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Now, therefore, thus saith the Lord of
hosts; t^ Consider your ways.

6 Ye have •■ sown much, and bring in lit-
tle; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye
drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye
clothe you, but there is none warm; and 'he
that earneth wages, earneth wages to put it
into a bag t with holes.

7 IT Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consi-
der your ways.

8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood,
and build the house; and I will take plea-
sure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the
Lord.

9 ''Ye looked for much, and lo, it came
to little ; and when ye brought it home, ' I
did II blow Upon it. Why? saith the Lord
of hosts. Because of mine house that is
waste, and ye run every man unto his own
house.

10 Therefore, ""the heaven over you is
stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed
from her fruit.

11 And I "called for a drought upon the
land, and upon the mountains^ and upon the
corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the
oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth
forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and
"upon all. the labour of the hands.

12 If p Then Zerubbabel the son of Sheal-
tiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the
high priest, with all the remnant of the
people, obeyed the voice of the Lord their
God, and the words of Haggai the prophet,
as the Lord their God had sent him, and
the people did fear before the Lord.

13 Then spake Haggai the Lord's mes-
senger in the Lord's message unto the peo-
ple, saying, 1 1 am with you, saith the Lord.

14 And ' the Lord stirred up the spirit
of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, 'go-
vernor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua
the son of Josedech, the high priest, and
the spirit of all the remnant of the people ;
' and they came and did work in the house
of the Lord of hosts, their God,

15 In the four and twentieth day of the
sixth month, in the second year of Darius
the king.

CHAP. H.

1 He enccmrageth the people to the woric, by promise of
greater glory to the second temple than was in the
first. 10 In the type of holy things and unclean he
sheweth their sins hindered the work. 20 God's pro-
mise to Zerubbabel.

IN the seventh month, in the one and
twentieth day of the month, came the
word of the Lord t by the prophet Haggai,
saying,

2 Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of
Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua
the son of Josedech the high priest, and to
the residue of the people, saying,

3 "Who is left among you that saw this
house in her first glory ? and how do ye see
it now ? '' is it not in your eyes in comparison
of it as nothing ?

4 Yet now "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 work : for I am with you, saith
the Lord of hosts :

5 •<■ According to the word that I covenant-
ed with you when ye came out of Egypt, so
« my Spirit remaineth among you ; fear ye

not.

781



Haggai encourageth the people.

6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts ; ""Yet
once, it is a little while, and el will shake
the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and
the dry land;

7 And I will shake all nations, '■ and the
Desire of all nations shall come : and I will fill
this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts,

8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,
saith the Lord of hosts.

9 ' The glory of this latter house shall be
greater than of the former, saith the Lord
of hosts : and in this place will I give ■" peace,
saith the Lord of hosts.

-^ 10 Uln the four and twentieth day of the
^ ninth month, in the second year of Darius,
came the word of the Lord by Haggai the
prophet, saying,

11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, 'Ask
now the priests concerning the law, saying,

12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his
garment, and with his skirt do touch bread,
or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall
it be holy? And the priests answered and
said, No.

13 Then said Haggai, If one that is ""un-
clean by adead body touch any of these, shall
it be unclean? And the priests answered
and said, It shall be unclean.

14 Then answered Haggai, and said, " So
is this people, and so is this nation before me,
saith the Lord ; and so is every work of their
hands; and that which they ofier there 'is
unclean.

15 And now, I pray you, "consider from
this day and upward, from before a stone was
laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord :

God's promise to Zerubbabel.

16 Since those days were, p when one came
to an heap of twenty measures, there were
but ten : when one came to the press-fat for
to draw out fifty vessels out of the press,
there were hut tv/enty.

17 1 1 smote you with blasting and with
mildew and with hail "^in all the labours of
your hands ; =yet ye turned not to me, saith
the Lord.

18 Consider now from this day and up-
ward, from the four and twentieth day of
the ninth month, even from 'the day that the
foundation of the Lord's temple was laid,
consider it.

19 "Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as
yet the vine, and the fig-tree, and the pome-
granate, and the olive-tree, hath not brought
forth : from this day will I bless you.

20 TI And again the word of the Lord
came unto Haggai in the four and twen-
tieth day of the month, saying,

21 Speak to Zerubbabel, ''governor of
Judah, saying, yl will shake the heavens and
the earth;

22 And ^\ will overthrow the throne of
kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of
the kingdoms of the heathen ; and =^1 will
overthrow the chariots, and those that ride
in them; and the horses and their riders
shall come down, every one by the sword
of his brother.

23 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 as a signet; for'=I have chosen
thee, saith the Lord of hosts'.

T



The vision of the horses, Sfc.

8 I saw by night, and behold ■> a man
riding upon a red horse, and he stood among
the myrtle-trees that were in the bottom;
and behind him were there 'red horses,
[| speckled, and white.

9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these ?
And the angel that talked with me said unto
me, I will shew thee what these be.

10 And the man that stood among the
myrtle-trees answered and said, ^ These are
they whom the Lord hath sent to walk to
and fro through the earth.

1 i > And they answered the angel of the
Lord that stood among the myrtle-trees, and
said. We have walked to and fro through the
earth, and behold, all the earth sitteth still,
and is at rest.

12 IF Then the angel of the Lord an-
swered and said, "O Lord of hosts, how
long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem
and on the cities of Judah, against which
thou hast had indignation "these threescore
and ten years ? "

13 And the Lord answered the angel
that talked with me with ° good words and
coinfortable words.

14 So the angel that communed with
me said unto me. Cry thou, saying. Thus
saith the Lord of hosts; I am p jealous "for
Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jea-
lousy.

15 And I am very sore displeased with the
heathen that are at ease : for 1 1 was but a
little displeased, and they helped forward the
aiffliction.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord; 'I am
returned to Jerusalem with mercies: mine house
shall be built in it, saith the Lord of hosts,
and ' a line shall be stretched forth upon Je-
rusalem.

17 Cry yet, saying. Thus saith the Lord
of hosts; My cities through f prosperity shall
yet be spread abroad ; ' and the Lord shall
yet comfort Zion, and " shall yet choose
Jerusalem.

18 IT Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw,
and behold four horns.

19 And I said unto the angel that talked
with me. What be these ? and he answered
me, ^ These are the horns which have scat-
tered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.

20 And the Lord shewed me four car-
penters.

21 Then said I, What come these to do?
And he spake, saying, These are the horns
which have scattered Judah, so that no man
did hft up his head : but these are come to
fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gen-
tiles, which y lifted up their horn over the
land of Judah to scatter it.

The redemption of Zion.
CHAP. n.

1 God, in the care of Jerusalem, sendeth to measure it.
6 The redemption of Zion. 10 The promise of God's
presence.

I LIFTED up ritine eyes again, and look-
ed, and behold " a man with a measuring
line in his hand.

2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And
he said unto me, ^To measure Jerusalem, to
see what is the breadth thereof, and what is
the length thereof.

3 And behold, the angel that talked with
me went forth, and another angel went out
to meet him,

4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this
young man, saying, "Jerusalem shall be inha-
bited as towns without walls for the multi-
tude of men and cattle therein :

5 For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her
^ a wall of fire round about, ^ and will be the
glory in the midst of her.

6 IT Ho, ho, come forth, and flee ''from the
land of the north, saith the Lord : for I have
ff spread you abroad as the four winds of the
heaven, saith the Lord.

7 ^ Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest
with the daughter of Babylon.

8 For thus saith the Lord- of hosts : After
the glory hath he sent me unto the nations
which spoiled you : for he that 'toucheth you,
toucheth the apple of his eye.

9 For behold, I will "^ shake my hand upon
them, and they shall be a spoil to their ser-
vants : and ' ye shall know that the Lord of
hosts hath sent me.

10 IT "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of
Zion : for lo, I come, and I "will dwell in
the midst of thee, saith the Lord.

11 "And many nations shall be joined to
the Lord Pin that day, and shall be "J my
people : and I will dwell in the midst of thee,
and "^thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts
hath -sent me unto thee.

12 And the Lord shall ^inherit Judah his
portion in the holy land, and 'shall choose
Jerusalem again.

13 "Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord:
for he is raised up ^out of this holy habita-
tion.

CHAP. m.

1 Tinder the type of Joshua, the restoration of the church,
8 Christ the Branch is promised.

AND he shewed me "Joshua the high
priest standing before the angel of the
Lord, and ^ || Satan standing at his right
hand tto resist him.

2 And the Lord said unto Satan, " The

Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord

that ^ hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee :

is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

3 Now Joshua was clothed with ""filthy
garments, and stood before the angel.

4 And he answered and spake unto those
that stood before him, saying, Take away the
filthy garments from him. * And unto him he
said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity tor
