ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid, consider it.
 Is the
seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree,
hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
 And again the word of the LORD came unto
Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah,
saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I
will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that
ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel,
saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.
