The exile to Babylon is over, the people have been back in their homeland for 18 years, but the effort to rebuild the temple had ground to a halt. The people’s lives were hard and not filled with abundance, but they were unable or unwilling to look at the root of their woes.

“Now go up into the hills, bring down timber, and rebuild my house. Then I will take pleasure in it and be honored, says the LORD.” (Haggai 1:8, NLT)
