Bible: Haggai 2:3-9

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  2:6 Moreover, the Lord who rules over all says: ‘In just a little while 6  I will once again shake the sky 7  and the earth, the sea and the dry ground. 2:7 I will also shake up all the nations, and they 8  will offer their treasures; 9  then I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord who rules over all. 2:8 The silver and gold will be mine,’ says the Lord who rules over all. 2:9 The future splendor of this temple will be greater than that of former times,’ 10  the Lord who rules over all declares, ‘and in this place I will give peace.’ 11
