1 Op die een en twintigste dag van die sewende maand het die woord van die HERE deur die diens van die profeet Haggai gekom en gesê:

2 Spreek tog met Serubbábel, die seun van Seáltiël, die goewerneur van Juda, en met Josua, die seun van Jósadak, die hoëpriester, en met die oorblyfsel van die volk en :

3 Wie is onder julle nog oor wat hierdie huis in sy vroeëre heerlikheid gesien het? En hoedanig sien julle dit nou? Lyk dit nie net soos niks in julle nie?

4 Nou dan, skep moed, Serubbábel, spreek die HERE, en skep moed, Josua, hoëpriester, seun van Jósadak, en skep moed, julle almal, volk van die land, spreek die HERE, en werk! Want Ek is met julle, spreek die HERE van die leërskare,

5 met betrekking tot die verbond wat Ek met julle gesluit het by julle uittog uit Egipteland, en my Gees sal in julle midde bestendig bly; wees nie bevrees nie!

6 Want so die HERE van die leërskare: 'n Rukkie nog, 'n kort tydjie, dan sal Ek die hemel en die aarde en die see en die droë grond laat bewe.

7 Ek sal ook al die nasies laat bewe, sodat die skatte van al die nasies sal toevloei; en Ek sal hierdie huis met heerlikheid vervul, die HERE van die leërskare.

8 Aan My behoort die silwer en aan My die goud, spreek die HERE van die leërskare.

9 Die toekomstige heerlikheid van hierdie huis sal groter wees as die vroeëre, die HERE van die leërskare; en op hierdie plek sal Ek vrede gee, spreek die HERE van die leërskare.

10 Op die vier en twintigste van die negende maand in die tweede jaar van Daríus, het die woord van die HERE gekom deur die diens van die profeet Haggai en gesê:

11 So die HERE van die leërskare: Vra tog aan die priesters inligting uit die wet en :

12 As iemand heilige vleis in die slip van sy kleed dra, en hy sou met sy slip aan brood raak of iets wat gekook is, of wyn of olie of watter spys ook al, sal dit heilig word? En die priesters het geantwoord en gesê: Nee.

13 Daarop Haggai: As iemand wat deur 'n lyk verontreinig is, aan al hierdie dinge sou raak, sal dit onrein wees? En die priesters het geantwoord en gesê: Dit sal onrein wees.

14 Toe antwoord Haggai en : Só is in my oë hierdie volk en só hierdie nasie, spreek die HERE, en só is al die werk van hulle hande en wat hulle dáár offer--onrein is dit.

15 Merk dan nou tog op, van hierdie dag af terug! Voordat hulle steen op steen gelê het in die tempel van die HERE,

16 in dié tyd het iemand gekom by 'n koringmied van twintig maat, en daar was maar tien; hy het gekom by die parskuip om vyftig emmers te skep, en daar was maar twintig.

17 Ek het julle swaar getref met brandkoring en heuningdou en hael--al die werk van julle hande--nogtans het niemand van julle hom tot My gewend nie, spreek die HERE.

18 Merk tog op, van hierdie dag af terug, van die vier en twintigste dag van die negende maand, naamlik van die dag af toe hulle die fondament van die tempel van die HERE gelê het; merk op:

19 Is daar nog saad in die skuur? Ja, selfs die wingerdstok en die vyeboom en die granaatboom en die olyfboom het niks opgelewer nie. Van hierdie dag af sal Ek seën.

20 Vir die tweede maal het die woord van die HERE tot Haggai gekom op die vier en twintigste van die maand en gesê:

21 Spreek met Serubbábel, die goewerneur van Juda, en : Ek sal die hemel en die aarde laat bewe.

22 En Ek sal die koningstrone omverwerp en die mag van die heidense koninkryke verdelg; en Ek sal die strydwaens en die wat daarop ry, omverwerp, en die perde en hulle ruiters sal val, die een deur die swaard van die ander.

23 In dié dag, spreek die HERE van die leërskare, sal Ek jou neem, Serubbábel, seun van Seáltiël, my kneg, spreek die HERE, en jou maak tot 'n seëlring, want jou het Ek verkies, spreek die HERE van die leërskare.

In Chapter 2, Haggai comes a second time to Zerubbabel and Joshua, saying,

"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?"

In verses 4-5 he encourages the people to be strong and persevere and in verses 6-9, he promises a great change coming. The Lord will bring about this change because an external church, a church that is just performing rituals, is of no use.

Only a church that leads people to do well in their lives, and in in their thoughts, because that is what the Lord says, is of any use. Once this truth has been falsified, or made “unclean” there is not much left of the church (verses 10-14).

Although there are abundant truths in the Word, in a church that is only external they are not found, because there is no use for them. In spite of the peoples' hardships, no one has bothered to question what they might be doing wrong.

From verse 18 Haggai’s prophecy becomes triumphant. "The seed is yet in the barn and the fig tree and the vine will come." The promise in verse 6 is repeated, "I will shake the heavens and the earth, and the sea and the dry land", i.e. He will overthrow all those who follow their own doctrine and their own false ideas.

The Lord will bring another church that is not the reconstructed ancient church or its representation, but a church built from a new knowledge of the Lord, and a new set of people. This, though not soon, will be the coming of the Lord himself. Zerubbabel is used to represent this as a shining signet, because, though governor, he was not of the Jewish people.
