1:1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, the word of Yahweh 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,
1:2 Thus speaks Yahweh of hosts, saying, This people say, It is not the time [for us] to come, the time for Yahweh's house to be built.
1:3 Then the word of Yahweh came by Haggai the prophet, saying,
1:4 Is it a time for you+ yourselves to dwell in your+ ceiled houses, while this house lies waste?
1:5 Now therefore this is what Yahweh of Hosts says: Consider your+ ways.
