HAGGAI
In the second year of King Darius, in the sixth month, first day of the month: To Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, Governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.

NOTE: It must be remembered that Darius was made King over the Chaldeans and Persia and not over the Medes or the entire kingdom of Babylon (Cp. Daniel 9: 1; 11: 1; Ezra 4: 24; 6: 14b).

MALACHI

COMMENTARY: The period of Prophesying, starting in chronological order according to the reign of the Kings of Israel and Judah [King Uzziah or Azariah thru Zedekiah or Mattaniah], are the Prophets: Isaiah, Amos, Hosea, Micah, Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Daniel, Ezekiel, 2 Jeremiah (??), Haggai, and Zechariah; covering a span of approximately 244 to 283 years. In order to arrive at a better understanding of prophetic fulfillment, especially when it comes to "Messianic" expectations, it might be prudent as well as vital, to consider this ordering of historic events; whether pre-exilic, exilic, or post-exilic, among the Israelites (Hebrews, Jews, etc.).

It is interesting that of the 9 kings that are mentioned, Jeroboam II is the ONLY non-Judean one; being the son of Joash. Not only that, but things really started to unravel socially, politically, religiously for the Israelites whafter the death of King Josiah. Pharaoh Necho of Egypt imprisoned Jehozadak son of Josiah in Hamath, where he later died. Then he appoints another son of Josiah, Eliakim [Jehoiakim] to rule in Jerusalem. Jehoiakim and the region became a vassal state to Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar. Jehoiakim rebelled against Babylon's authority and Judea was destroyed. Jehoiakim died in the land but his son Jehoiachin and the royal family as well as the servants and many of the inhabitants were taken captive to Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar renamed Zedekiah was actually King Jehoiachin's uncle, Mattaniah. Zedekiah was the last recorded Judean king and he rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar, too; for which he paid an awful price. His sons were killed right before his eyes, and then he was blinded and taken in bronze fetters to Babylon
