The Glory of the Lord - Haggai 2

In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth  day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the  prophet Haggai, saying,  Haggai 2:1 KJV

Haggai 2:2 Speak 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, 

Haggai 2:3 Who 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? 

Haggai 2:4 Yet 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: 

Haggai 2:5 According to the  word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of  Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 

Haggai 2:6  For 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; 

Haggai 2:7 And 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. 

Haggai 2:8 The silver  is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.   

Haggai 2:9 The 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.  

Haggai 2:10 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, 

Haggai 2:11 Thus saith the  LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law,  saying, 

Haggai 2:12 If 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. 

Haggai 2:13 Then 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. 

Haggai 2:14 Then 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. 

Haggai 2:15 And 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: 

Haggai 2:16  Since 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. 

Haggai 2:17 I 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. 

Haggai 2:18  Consider 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.  

Haggai 2:19 Is 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.  

Haggai 2:20 And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,   

Haggai 2:21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I  will shake the heavens and the earth; 

Haggai 2:22 And 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. 

Haggai 2:23 In 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.
