And the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
"Thus says the LORD of hosts: The fast of the 1fourth month and the fast of the 2fifth and the fast of the 3seventh and the fast of the 4tenth shall be to the house of Judah 5seasons of joy and gladness and cheerful feasts. Therefore love 6truth and peace.
"Thus says the LORD of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, even the inhabitants of many cities.
The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, 7'Let us go at once 8to entreat the favor of the LORD and to seek the LORD of hosts; I myself am going.'
229Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem and 10to entreat the favor of the LORD.
Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days 11ten men 12from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, 'Let us go with you, for 13we have heard that God is with you.'"
