Bible: Haggai 2:1-5

The Glory to Come

2:1 On the twenty-first day of the seventh month, 1  the Lord spoke again through the prophet Haggai: 2  2:2 Ask the following questions to 3  Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, the high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak, 4  and the remnant of the people: 2:3 Who among you survivors saw the former splendor of this temple? 5  How does it look to you now? Isn’t it nothing by comparison? 2:4 Even so, take heart, Zerubbabel,’ says the Lord. ‘Take heart, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and 6  all you citizens of the land,’ 7  says the Lord, ‘and begin to work. For I am with you,’ says the Lord who rules over all. 2:5 Do not fear, because I made a promise to your ancestors when they left Egypt, and my spirit 8  even now testifies to you.’ 9
