15 “‘Now give careful thought(A) to this from this day on[a]—consider how things were before one stone was laid(B) on another in the Lord’s temple.(C) 16 When anyone came to a heap(D) of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat(E) to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty.(F) 17 I struck all the work of your hands(G) with blight,(H) mildew and hail,(I) yet you did not return(J) to me,’ declares the Lord.(K) 18 ‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought(L) to the day when the foundation(M) of the Lord’s temple was laid. Give careful thought: 19 Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate(N) and the olive tree have not borne fruit.(O)

“‘From this day on I will bless(P) you.’”
