Bible: Haggai 2:3-5

2:3 Who among you survivors saw the former splendor of this temple? 1  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 2  all you citizens of the land,’ 3  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 4  even now testifies to you.’ 5
