Haggai 1:10-11

Context
1:10 This is why the sky 1  has held back its dew and the earth its produce. 2  1:11 Moreover, I have called for a drought that will affect the fields, the hill country, the grain, new wine, fresh olive oil, and everything that grows from the ground; it also will harm people, animals, and everything they produce.’” 3 

1 tn The Hebrew text has “over you” (so KJV), but this is redundant in contemporary English and has been left untranslated.

2 sn This linkage of human sin to natural disaster is reminiscent of the curse brought upon the earth by Adam’s disobedience (Gen 3:17-19; see Rom 8:20-22).

3 tn Heb “all the labor of hands” (similar KJV, NASB, NIV); cf. NAB “all that is produced by hand.”
