(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 In the second yeere of Darius the king, in the sixt moneth, in the first day of the moneth came the worde of the Lord by Haggai the Prophet vnto Zerubbabel the sonne of Shealtiel, gouernour of Iudah, and to Iosuah the sonne of Iosedech the high priest, saying;

2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hostes, saying; This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lords house should be built.

3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying;

4 Is it time for you, O yee, to dwell in your sieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Nowe therefore thus saith the Lord of hostes; Consider your wayes.

6 Yee haue sowen much and bring in litle: ye eate, but ye haue not inough: yee drinke, but yee are not filled with drinke: yee cloth you, but there is none warme: and hee that earneth wages, earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

7 Thus saith the Lord of hostes, Consider your wayes.

8 Goe vp to the mountaine, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.

9 Ye looked for much, and loe it came to litle: and when yee brought it home, I did blow vpon it: Why, saith the Lord of hostes? because of mine house that is waste, and yee runne euery man vnto his owne house.

10 Therefore the heauen ouer you is stayed from dew, and the earth is staied from her fruite.

11 And I called for a drought vpon the land and vpon the mountaines, and vpon the corne, and vpon the new wine, and vpon the oyle, and vpon that which the ground bringeth forth, & vpon men, and vpon cattell, and vpon all the labour of the hands.

12 Then Zerubbabel the sonne of Shealtiel, and Iosuah the sonne of Iosedech the high priest, with all the remnant of the people obeyed the voyce of the Lord their God, and the words of Haggai the Prophet (as the Lord their God had sent him) and the people did feare before the Lord.

13 Then spake Haggai the Lords messenger in the Lords message vnto the people, saying; I am with you, saith the Lord.

14 And the Lord stirred vp the spirit of Zerubbabel the sonne of Shealtiel gouernour of Iudah, and the spirit of Iosuah the sonne of Iosedech the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people, and they came and did worke in the house of the Lord of hostes their God:

15 In the foure and twentieth day of the sixt moneth, in the second yeere of Darius the King.

Marvin's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 3/16/2015, 2:34pm...

It 's similar to the way some of us are now, we forget about GOD who brought us out of terrible situations, sickness desease death hunger etc. So as in Haggai the prophet let us return back to GOD that we may grow and put him first in our lives. It is he who made us and not we ourselves, praise GOD.


Nicola's Haggai Chapter 1 comment about verse 2 on 1/20/2015, 2:58pm...

Sometimes we are busy with our own affairs that we forget or place less emphasis on the things we should prioritize eg our relationship with God or to even tell somebody about the gospel of truth.


M's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 6/22/2014, 3:42am...

Solomon said that it was all is vanity because he realize that all the things stuff and junk that man have and get is not as important as serving and doing the will of GOD or obeying GOD, when GOD tells us that HE want something done HE want it done just as HE tell us to do it, .we can work 24 7 and not gain anything until we obey GOD, that is why we throw away on our wages and put hole in our pockets as soon as we receive it, it 's gone we never have enough or we are so comfortable in our houses that we forget about serving GOD like we should, we have to line with GOD HE does not have to line up with us.

UCHE AGHANWA's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 1/09/2014, 9:09pm...

Matthew 21:12-13..."My Father's house shall be called a house of prayer". Think of it. Makes me feel guilty for not having done much for the Lord's house.Little wonder then people struggle so much with little or nothing to show for it.God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him...Hebrews 11:6.


Tsango's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 1/07/2014, 2:10pm...

Angel's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 11/07/2013, 9:40am...

We in todays society have neglected the house of the Lord by playing the "game" of Christianity but acting as Christians by following the teachings of Jesus. We are to be separate from the world meaning we shouldn't act like the world for it we act like the world then how will the world know we are different? We shouldn't use the same foul language, the same behavior whether it be to react with anger, bitterness or strife or following in the same sexual paths as the world or any other deviant behavior. We should be willing to take critism and even being mocked for we are not above our master, Jesus, who was mocked etc.

We have also stopped teaching properly in the churches and have not spoken of the Holy Spirit properly who is our power source to God and leads us in our daily lives and reveals the scriptures to us. We have not spoken of hell and the consequences of sin nor taught the proper message of the gospel of grace. Instead of proper teaching we have gone more social and pleasing words to tickle the ears of mankind. Is it no wonder people are turning from the church/body of Christ to the world?


Celest's Haggai Chapter 1 comment on 10/12/2013, 8:05am...

I believe God is saying that whatever it is he has told us to do, we must do it in order for our lives to prosper in the way we hope for. Maybe we're putting off tithing or studying the Word regularly, or going to church, or writing a book, or starting a bible study class, or whatever to build his house. God does not enlist spectators. He expects us to participate in building his church. Once we do that, it doesn't matter what our paycheck says we have, we'll have plenty. And to the comment that there are many who don't believe in God who get blessed. Well, the Devil blesses his people with earthly wealth also. The real difference between God's blessings and Satan's is that God's blessings are attached to eternal life. The Devils blessings are attached to death in a burning pit of fire. Hope this helps.
