Choose the answer - B) did not believe the Holy Scripture.
The Old Russian tale of Tsar Aggay was collected, among others, by Alexander Afanasyev (a collector of Russian folklore). And she got into his hands through the collected works of Vladimir Dal, who in turn found it among old manuscripts brought from one of the districts of the Arkhangelsk province.
The king was punished for:
B) did not believe Scripture.
This king was very proud, he even decided that he could criticize the Holy Scriptures and change it according to his own understanding. But this is not allowed to anyone. therefore, the proud king received his punishment immediately. We choose the second answer under the letter B.
The story of Tsar Aggaeus is an example of Old Russian literature.

Because I DID NOT BELIEVE THE SCRIPTURE.
The ancient story about King Aggaeus speaks of a rich king who so believed in the inviolability and infinity of his wealth that he could not believe the words of the Holy Scripture that the rich would become poor and even tore out a page with these words. God punished him by making sure that no one recognized the king, and an angel ruled the city at that time and Haggai knew how it happens - to become a beggar.
Correct answer B - Didn't believe the Scripture.
King Haggai was so sure that his future was guaranteed by his real wealth that he dared to snatch from the Gospel, which, like the Old Testament, is included in the Holy Scriptures, a page that was displeasing to his royal majesty, with the words that the rich would become impoverished and the poor would get rich.
The Gospel says that all sins can be forgiven, except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Scriptures are inspired by God, so the punishment for the blasphemy of King Haggai followed immediately.
