1 NEL settimo mese, nel ventesimoprimo giorno del mese, la parola del Signore fu rivelata per lo profeta Aggeo, dicendo:

2 Parla ora a Zorobabel, figliuolo di Sealtiel, governatore di Giuda, ed a Iosua, figliuolo di Iosadac, sommo sacerdote, ed al rimanente del popolo, dicendo:

3 Chi di voi è rimasto, che abbia veduta questa Casa nella sua primiera gloria? e qual la vedete voi al presente? non è essa, appo quella, come nulla agli occhi vostri?

4 Ma pure, fortificati ora, o Zorobabel, dice il Signore; fortificati parimente, o Iosua, figliuolo di Iosadac, sommo sacerdote; fortificatevi ancora voi, o popol tutto del paese, dice il Signore; e mettetevi all’opera; perciocchè io sono con voi, dice il Signor degli eserciti;

5 secondo la parola che io patteggiai con voi, quando usciste di Egitto; e il mio Spirito dimorerà nel mezzo di voi; non temiate.

6 Perciocchè, così ha detto il Signor degli eserciti: Ancora una volta, fra poco, io scrollerò il cielo, e la terra, e il mare, e l’asciutto;

7 scrollerò ancora tutte le genti, e la scelta di tutte le nazioni verrà; ed io empierò questa Casa di gloria, ha detto il Signor degli eserciti.

8 L’argento è mio, e l’oro è mio, dice il Signor degli eserciti.

9 Maggiore sarà la gloria di questa seconda Casa, che la gloria della primiera, ha detto il Signor degli eserciti; ed io metterò la pace in questo luogo, dice il Signor degli eserciti.

10 NEL ventesimoquarto giorno del nono mese, nell’anno secondo di Dario, la parola del Signore fu rivelata per lo profeta Aggeo, dicendo:

11 Così ha detto il Signor degli eserciti: Domanda ora i sacerdoti, intorno alla Legge, dicendo:

12 Se un uomo porta della carne consacrata nel lembo del suo vestimento, e tocca col suo lembo del pane, o della polta, o del vino, o dell’olio, o qualunque altra vivanda, sarà quella santificata? E i sacerdoti risposero, e dissero: No.

13 Poi Aggeo disse: Se alcuno, essendo immondo per un morto, tocca qualunque di queste cose, non sarà ella immonda? E i sacerdoti risposero, e dissero: Sì, ella sarà immonda.

14 Ed Aggeo rispose, e disse: Così è questo popolo, e così, è questa nazione, nel mio cospetto, dice il Signore; e così è ogni opera delle lor mani; anzi quello stesso che offeriscono quivi è immondo.

15 Or al presente, ponete mente, come, da questo giorno addietro, avanti che fosse posta pietra sopra pietra nel Tempio del Signore;

16 da che le cose sono andate così, altri è venuto ad un mucchio di venti misure, e ve ne sono state sol dieci; altri è venuto al tino per attingere cinquanta barili, e ve ne sono stati sol venti.

17 Io vi ho percossi d’arsura, e di rubigine, e di gragnuola, in tutte le opere delle vostre mani; ma voi non vi siete curati di convertirvi a me, dice il Signore.

18 Ora considerate, avanti questo giorno, che è il ventesimoquarto del nono mese: considerate dal giorno che il Tempio del Signore è stato fondato.

19 Vi era egli più grano ne’ granai? fino alla vite, e al fico, e al melagrano e all’ulivo, nulla ha portato; ma da questo giorno innanzi io vi benedirò.

20 E LA parola del Signore fu indirizzata la seconda volta ad Aggeo, nel ventesimoquarto giorno del mese, dicendo:

21 Parla a Zorobabel, governatore di Giuda, dicendo: Io scrollerò il cielo, e la terra;

22 e sovvertirò il trono de’ regni, e distruggerò la forza de’ reami delle genti; e sovvertirò i carri, e quelli che saranno montati sopra; e i cavalli, e i lor cavalieri, saranno abbattuti, ciascuno per la spada del suo fratello.

23 In quel giorno, dice il Signor degli eserciti, io ti prenderò, o Zorobabel, figliuolo di Sealtiel, mio servitore, dice il Signore; e ti metterò come un suggello; perciocchè io ti ho eletto, dice il Signor degli eserciti.

  


Exploring the Meaning of Haggai 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

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.
