Yahweh Sabaoth says this, “Think carefully about your behaviour. You have sown much and harvested little; you eat but never have enough, drink but never have your fill, put on clothes but feel no warmth. The wage-earner gets his wages only to put them in a bag with a hole in it.”
Yahweh Sabaoth says this, “Think carefully about your behaviour. Go up into the hills, fetch timber and rebuild the House; and I shall take pleasure in it and manifest my glory there — Yahweh says.
The abundance you expected proved to be little. When you brought the harvest in, I blasted it. And why? – Yahweh Sabaoth declares. Because while my House lies in ruins, each of you is busy with his own house. That is why the sky has withheld the rain and the earth withheld its yield. I have called down drought on land and hills, on grain, on new wine, on olive oil and on all the produce of the ground, on humans and animals and all your labours.” ‘ (Hag. 1:5-11)
