Then the word of the Lord of Hosts came to me:
"The Lord of Hosts says this: The fast of the fourth [month],a the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenthb will become times of joy, gladness, and cheerful festivals for the house of Judah. Therefore, love truth and peace."
The Lord of Hosts says this: "Peoples will yet come, the residents of many cities;
the residents of one city will go to another, saying: Let's go at once to plead for the Lord's favor and to seek the Lord of Hosts. I am also going.
Many peoples and strong nations will come to seek the Lord of Hosts in Jerusalem and to plead for the Lord's favor."c23
The Lord of Hosts says this: "In those days, 10 men from nations of every language will grab the robe of a Jewish man tightly, urging: Let us go with you,d for we have heard that God is with you."
