Context Readings

The Temple Lies In Ruins

7 Thus sayeth the LORD of Hosts: Consider your own ways in your hearts, 8 get you up to the mountain, fetch wood, and build up the house: that it may be acceptable unto me, and that I may show mine honour, sayeth the LORD. 9 Ye looked for much, and lo it is come to little: and though ye bring it home, yet do I blow it away. And why so, sayeth the LORD of Hosts? Even because that my house lieth so waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
