哈该书 2:1-23

对新殿的应许

1七月二十一日,耶和华对先知哈该说: 2“你去告诉撒拉铁的儿子犹大省长所罗巴伯约撒答的儿子大祭司约书亚和所有的余民, 3‘你们当中有谁见过这殿昔日的荣耀呢?现在你们看这殿如何?看上去岂不是一文不值吗? 4所罗巴伯啊,你要刚强,这是耶和华说的。约撒答的儿子大祭司约书亚啊,你要刚强;这地方的所有百姓啊,你们要刚强。这是耶和华说的。你们要动工,因为我与你们同在。这是万军之耶和华说的。 5这是你们离开埃及时我对你们的应许。不要惧怕,我的灵仍住在你们当中。

6“‘万军之耶和华说,不久,我要再次震动天、地、海洋和旱地。 7万军之耶和华说,我要震动万国,万国的珍宝都要送到这殿,我要使这殿充满荣耀。 8万军之耶和华说,金子是我的,银子也是我的。 9万军之耶和华说,我要使这殿比从前更加荣耀。万军之耶和华说,我要在这地方赐下平安。’”

指出百姓的罪

10大流士王执政第二年九月二十四日,耶和华对先知哈该说: 11“万军之耶和华说,‘你去问祭司, 12如果有人用衣服兜着祭肉,而衣服碰到饼、汤、酒、油或其他食物,这些被衣服碰到的食物会成为圣洁之物吗?’”祭司们答道:“不会。” 13哈该又说:“如果因碰过尸体而变得不洁净的人接触这些食物,这些食物会变得不洁净吗?”祭司答道:“会变得不洁净。” 14于是哈该说:“耶和华说,‘这百姓和这国家在我面前也是如此。他们手中的各样工作和他们在那里所献的都不洁净。’

耶和华应许赐福

15“‘从今以后,你们要回想重建耶和华殿之前的光景。 16那时,有人盼望得到二十斗谷物,却只有十斗。有人盼望得到五十桶酒,榨酒池中却只有二十桶。 17我曾用虫灾、霉灾和冰雹毁灭你们的作物,你们仍没有归向我。这是耶和华说的。 18九月二十四日是我的殿奠定根基的日子。你们要思想这个日子,要认真思想。 19虽然粮仓里没有种子,葡萄树、无花果树、石榴树和橄榄树没结果子,但从今以后,我要赐福给你们。’”

拣选所罗巴伯

20同一天,耶和华第二次对哈该说: 21“你告诉犹大省长所罗巴伯,‘我必震动天地, 22推翻君王的宝座,消灭列国的势力,掀翻他们的战车和驾车的人,使战马跌倒、骑士自相残杀。 23万军之耶和华说,我的仆人撒拉铁的儿子所罗巴伯啊,到那日,我必使你像我盖印的戒指,因为我拣选了你。这是万军之耶和华说的。’”

King James Version

Haggai 2:1-23

1In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying, 2.1 by: Heb. by the hand of 2Speak 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, 3Who 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? 4Yet 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: 5According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7And 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. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9The 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¶ In 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, 11Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, 12If 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. 13Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. 14Then 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 offer there is unclean. 15And 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: 16Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty. 17I 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. 18Consider now from this day and upward, 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. 19Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.

20¶ And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, 21Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; 22And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I 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. 23In 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.
