Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the (A)mountains and bring wood and build the [a]temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. (B)You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, (C)I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house. 10 Therefore (D)the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit. 11 For I (E)called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain and the new wine and the oil, on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock, and on (F)all the labor of your hands.”
