Prophet Haggai 1:1-8

1:1In the second year of king Darius, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came, by the hand of Haggai the prophet, to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Jesus the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying:
1:2Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying: This people claims that the time has not yet arrived for building the house of the Lord.
1:3But the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying:
1:4Is it time for you to dwell in paneled houses, while this house is deserted?
1:5And now, thus says the Lord of hosts: Set your hearts upon your ways.
1:6You sowed much and have brought in little. You consumed and have not been satisfied. You drank and have not been inebriated. You covered yourselves and have not been warmed. And whoever gathered wages, has put them in a bag with holes.
1:7Thus says the Lord of hosts: Set your hearts upon your ways.
1:8Ascend to the mountain, bring wood and build the house, and it shall be acceptable to me, and I shall be glorified, says the Lord.

Luke 9:7-9

9:7Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all the things that were being done by him, but he doubted, because it was said
9:8by some, “For John has risen from the dead,” yet truly, by others, “For Elijah has appeared,” and by still others, “For one of the prophets from of old has risen again.”
9:9And Herod said: “I beheaded John. So then, who is this, about whom I hear such things?” And he sought to see him.
