학개 1

성전을 지으라는 여호와의 명령

1페르시아의 다리우스황제 2년 6월 일에 여호와께서 예언자 학개를 통하여 스 알디엘의 아들인 유다 총독 스룹바벨과 여호사닥의 아들인 대제사장 여호수아에게 말씀하셨다.

“전능한 나 여호와가 말한다. 이 백성들이 성전을 건축할 때가 아직 되지 않았다고 말하고 있다.

여호와께서 다시 예언자 학개를 통하여 말씀하셨다.

“내 성전은 황폐한 채로 있는데 너희는 호화 주택에 살고 있느냐?

그러므로 전능한 나 여호와가 말한다. 너희는 자기 소행을 잘 살펴보아라.

너희가 많이 심었으나 적게 거두었으며 너희가 먹어도 배부르지 않고 마셔도 흡족하지 않으며 입어도 따뜻하지 않고 품삯을 받아도 구멍 뚫린 지갑에 넣는 격이 되었다.

“전능한 나 여호와가 말한다. 너희는 자기 소행을 잘 살펴보아라.

너희는 산에 올라가서 목재를 가져다가 성전을 건축하라. 그러면 내가 그것으로 기뻐하고 영광을 얻을 것이다. 이것은 나 여호와의 말이다.

너희가 많은 수확을 기대했으나 얻은 것은 적었으며 너희가 수확한 것을 집으로 가져갔으나 내가 그것을 날려 버렸다. 그 이유가 무엇이냐? 이것은 내 집이 황폐한데도 너희가 자기 집안 일에만 급급하였기 때문이다.

10 그래서 너희 때문에 하늘이 이슬을 내리지 않고 땅에서 농산물이 나지 않게 되었으며

11 또 내가 가뭄이 들게 하였으므로 들과 산과 곡식과 새 포도주와 기름과 땅의 모든 농산물과 사람과 짐승과 애써 수고한 모든 것이 피해를 입게 되었다.”

백성들의 순종

12 그때 스알디엘의 아들 스룹바벨과 여호사닥의 아들인 대제사장 여호수아와 남은 모든 백성이 예언자 학개가 전한 여호와의 말씀에 순종하였다. 이것은 그들의 하나님 여호와께서 학개를 보내셨기 때문이었다. 그래서 백성들은 여호와를 두려워하였다.

13 그때 학개는 “내가 너희와 함께한다” 는 여호와의 말씀을 백성들에게 전하였다.

14 여호와께서 스알디엘의 아들인 유다 총독 스룹바벨과 여호사닥의 아들인 대제사장 여호수아와 그리고 남아 있는 모든 백성의 마음을 감동시키시므로 그들이 자기들의 하나님, 전능하신 여호와의 성전을 재건하기 시작했는데

15 그때는 다리우스황제 2년 6월 24일이었다.

Haggai 1

Haggai Begins Temple Building

1In the second year of [a]Darius the king [of Persia], on the first day of the sixth month (Aug 29, 520 b.c.), the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘These people say, “The time has not come that the Lord’s house (temple) should be [b]rebuilt.”’” Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying, “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].”

Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! Go up to the hill country, bring lumber and rebuild My house (temple), that I may be pleased with it and be glorified,” says the Lord [accepting it as done for My glory]. You look for much [harvest], but it comes to little; and even when you bring that home, I blow it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house, which lies in ruins while each of you runs to his own house [eager to enjoy it]. 10 Therefore, because of you [that is, your sin and disobedience] the heavens withhold the dew and the earth withholds its produce. 11 I called for a drought on the land and the hill country, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on men, on cattle, and on all the labor of your hands.”

12 Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people [who had returned from exile], listened carefully and obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the words of Haggai the prophet, since the Lord their God had sent him. And the people [reverently] feared the Lord. 13 Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, spoke the Lord’s message to the people saying, “‘I am with you,’ declares the Lord.” 14 So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and worked on the house of the Lord of hosts, their God, 15 on the [c]twenty-fourth day of the sixth month (Sept 21, 520 b.c.) in the second year of Darius the king.

Notas al pie

  1. Haggai 1:1 Darius the Great ruled Persia (capital city, Persepolis) from 522-486 b.c. He was an avid builder who used paid workers for his projects instead of slaves, a concept which at that time was revolutionary. He was a gifted visionary, and an energetic king whose social and economic goals endured and greatly benefited both his subjects and future generations. He developed efficient highways, standardized coinage, weights, measures, and he promoted religious tolerance and human rights.
  2. Haggai 1:2 The people of Judah had completed seventy years of captivity in Babylon (Jer 25:11, 12; Dan 9:2). In October 539 b.c., the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon, whereupon Cyrus the Great (founder of the Persian Empire, his reign extended from 559-529 b.c.) issued a decree permitting the Jews to return home and mandating the rebuilding of the temple (Ezra 1:1-4). Some 50,000 returned (Ezra 2:64, 65) and shortly thereafter laid the foundation of the temple (Ezra 3:8-10), but when neighboring Samaritans antagonized the Jews, work on the temple stopped and the temple work lay dormant for some sixteen years. It was during the reign of Darius the Great that Haggai and Zechariah rebuked the people and admonished them to complete the temple. The people responded and the temple was completed in 516 b.c.
  3. Haggai 1:15 Just twenty-three days elapsed from the original prophecy and the resumption of work on the temple.
