1 In the seventh month, on the twenty-first [day] of the month, the Lord spoke by Aggaeus the prophet, saying, 2 Speak now to Zorobabel the son of Salathiel, of the tribe of Juda, and to Jesus the son of Josedec, the high priest, and to all the remnant of the people, saying, Who [is there] of you that saw this house in her former glory? and how do ye now look upon it, as it were nothing before your eyes? 4 Yet now be strong, O Zorobabel, saith the Lord; and strengthen thyself, O Jesus the high priest, the son of Josedec; and let all the people of the land strengthen themselves, saith the Lord, and work, for I am with you, saith the Lord Almighty; 5 and my Spirit remains in the midst of you; be of good courage. 6 For thus saith the Lord Almighty; Yet once I will shake the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry [land]; 7 and I will shake all nations, and the choice [portions] of all the nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord Almighty. 8 Mine is the silver, and mine the gold, saith the Lord Almighty. 9 For the glory of this house shall be great, the latter more than the former, saith the Lord Almighty: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord Almighty, even peace of soul for a possession to every one that builds, to raise up this temple. 10 On the four and twentieth [day] of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Aggaeus the prophet, saying, 11 Thus saith the Lord Almighty; Inquire now of the priest [concerning] the law, saying, 12 If a man should take holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and the skirt of his garment should touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No. 13 And Aggaeus said, If a defiled person who is unclean by reason of a dead body, touch any of these, shall it be defiled? And the priests answered and said, It shall be defiled. 14 And Aggaeus answered and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so are all the works of their hands: and whosoever shall approach them, shall be defiled [[because of their early burdens: they shall be pained because of their toils; and ye have hated him that reproved in the gates]]. 15 And now consider, I pray you, from this day and beforetime, before they laid a stone on a stone in the temple of the Lord, what manner of men ye were. 16 When ye cast into the corn-bin twenty measures of barley, and there were [only] ten measures of barley: and ye went to the vat to draw out fifty measures, and there were [but] twenty. 17 I smote you with barrenness, and with blasting, and all the works of your hands with hail; yet ye returned not to me, saith the Lord. 18 Set your hearts now [to think] from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth [day] of the ninth month, even from the day when the foundation of the temple of the Lord was laid; 19 consider in your hearts, whether [this] shall be known on the corn-floor, and whether yet the vine, and the fig-tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive-trees that bear no fruit [are with you]: from this day will I bless [you]. 20 And the word of the Lord came the second time to Aggaeus the prophet, on the four and twentieth [day] of the month, saying, 21 Speak to Zorobabel the son of Salathiel, of the tribe of Juda, saying, I shake the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry [land]; 22 and I will overthrow the thrones of kings, and I will destroy the power of the kings of the nations; and I will overthrow chariots and riders; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword striving against his brother. 23 In that day, saith the Lord Almighty, I will take thee, O Zorobabel, the son of Salathiel, my servant, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a seal: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord Almighty. Τῼ μηνὶ τῷ ἑβδόμῳ, μιᾷ καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνός, ἐλάλησε Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ ᾿Αγγαίου τοῦ προφήτου λέγων· 2 εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς Ζοροβάβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιὴλ ἐκ φυλῆς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν τοῦ ᾿Ιωσεδὲκ τὸν ἱερέα τὸν μέγαν καὶ πρὸς πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ λέγων· 3 τίς ἐξ ὑμῶν, ὃς εἶδε τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ἐν τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ τῇ ἔμπροσθεν; καὶ πῶς ὑμεῖς βλέπετε αὐτὸν νῦν καθὼς οὐχ ὑπάρχοντα ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν; 4 καὶ νῦν κατίσχυε, Ζοροβάβελ, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ κατίσχυε, ᾿Ιησοῦ ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιωσεδὲκ ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας, καὶ κατισχυέτω πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ ποιεῖτε· διότι μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν ἐγώ εἰμι, λέγει Κύριος ὁ παντοκράτωρ, 5 καὶ τὸ πνεῦμά μου ἐφέστηκεν ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν· θαρσεῖτε, 6 διότι τάδε λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ· ἔτι ἅπαξ ἐγὼ σείσω τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ τὴν ξηράν· 7 καὶ συσσείσω πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, καὶ ἥξει τὰ ἐκλεκτὰ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν, καὶ πλήσω τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον δόξης, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ. 8 ἐμὸν τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ ἐμὸν τὸ χρυσίον, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ. 9 διότι μεγάλη ἔσται ἡ δόξα τοῦ οἴκου τούτου ἡ ἐσχάτη ὑπὲρ τὴν πρώτην, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ· καὶ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ δώσω εἰρήνην, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ, καὶ εἰρήνην ψυχῆς εἰς περιποίησιν παντὶ τῷ κτίζοντι τοῦ ἀναστῆσαι τὸν ναὸν τοῦτον. - 10 Τετράδι καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ ἐνάτου μηνός, ἔτους δευτέρου, ἐπὶ Δαρείου, ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρὸς ᾿Αγγαῖον τὸν προφήτην λέγων· 11 τάδε λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ· ἐπερώτησον δὴ τοὺς ἱερεῖς νόμον λέγων· 12 ἐὰν λάβῃ ἄνθρωπος κρέας ἅγιον ἐν τῷ ἄκρῳ τοῦ ἱματίου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἅψηται τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ ἱματίου αὐτοῦ ἄρτου ἢ ἑψήματος ἢ οἴνου ἢ ἐλαίου ἢ παντὸς βρώματος, εἰ ἁγιασθήσεται; καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπαν· οὔ. 13 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αγγαῖος· ἐὰν ἅψηται μεμιασμένος ἀκάθαρτος ἐπὶ ψυχῇ ἐπὶ παντὸς τούτων, εἰ μιανθήσεται; καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπαν· μιανθήσεται. 14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ᾿Αγγαῖος καὶ εἶπεν· οὕτως ὁ λαὸς οὗτος καὶ οὕτως τὸ ἔθνος τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ οὕτως πάντα τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν, καὶ ὃς ἐὰν ἐγγίσῃ ἐκεῖ, μιανθήσεται ἕνεκεν τῶν λημμάτων αὐτῶν τῶν ὀρθρινῶν, ὀδυνηθήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου πόνων αὐτῶν· καὶ ἐμισεῖτε ἐν πύλαις ἐλέγχοντας 15 καὶ νῦν θέσθε δὴ εἰς τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ὑπεράνω πρὸ τοῦ θεῖναι λίθον ἐπὶ λίθον ἐν τῷ ναῷ Κυρίου, 16 τίνες ᾖτε, ὅτε ἐνεβάλλετε εἰς κυψέλην κριθῆς εἴκοσι σάτα, καὶ ἐγένοντο κριθῆς δέκα σάτα· καὶ εἰσεπορεύεσθε εἰς τὸ ὑπολήνιον ἐξαντλῆσαι πεντήκοντα μετρητάς, καὶ ἐγένοντο εἴκοσι. 17 ἐπάταξα ὑμᾶς ἐν ἀφορίᾳ καὶ ἐν ἀνεμοφθορίᾳ καὶ ἐν χαλάζῃ πάντα τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με, λέγει Κύριος. 18 ὑποτάξατε δὴ τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐπέκεινα· ἀπὸ τῆς τετράδος καὶ εἰκάδος τοῦ ἐνάτου μηνὸς καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας, ἧς τεθεμελίωται ὁ ναὸς Κυρίου· θέσθε ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ὑμῶν, 19 εἰ ἔτι ἐπιγνωσθήσεται ἐπὶ τῆς ἅλω καὶ εἰ ἔτι ἡ ἄμπελος καὶ ἡ συκῆ καὶ ἡ ῥοὰ καὶ τὰ ξύλα τῆς ἐλαίας τὰ οὐ φέροντα καρπόν, ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης εὐλογήσω. - 20 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου ἐκ δευτέρου πρὸς ᾿Αγγαῖον τὸν προφήτην τετράδι καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνὸς λέγων· 21 εἰπὸν πρὸς Ζοροβάβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιὴλ ἐκ φυλῆς ᾿Ιούδα λέγων· ἐγὼ σείω τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ τὴν ξηρὰν 22 καὶ καταστρέψω θρόνους βασιλέων καὶ ὀλοθρεύσω δύναμιν βασιλέων τῶν ἐθνῶν καὶ καταστρέψω ἅρματα καὶ ἀναβάτας, καὶ καταβήσονται ἵπποι καὶ ἀναβάται αὐτῶν, ἕκαστος ἐν ρομφαίᾳ πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ. 23 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ, λήψομαί σε Ζοροβάβελ τὸν τοῦ Σαλαθιήλ, τὸν δοῦλόν μου, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ θήσομαί σε ὡς σφραγῖδα, διότι σὲ ᾑρέτισα, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ.
