The foundation of the Temple (Zech 8:9-8:9)

“Thus says Yahweh of hosts.

‘Let your hands be strong!

You recently have been hearing

These words

From the mouth

Of the prophets.

They were present

When the foundation

Was laid

For the rebuilding

Of the Temple,

The house of Yahweh of hosts.’”

Yahweh of hosts, via Zechariah, talked about the foundation of the Temple.  Their hands had to be strong to finish this work.  They had heard from the prophets who were present at the foundation laying.  They were now about to rebuild the Temple.
