Zechariah 7:4-7 MSG

4 God-of-the-Angel-Armies gave me this Message for them,
5 for all the people and for the priests: "When you held days of fasting every fifth and seventh month all these seventy years, were you doing it for me?
6 And when you held feasts, was that for me? Hardly. You're interested in religion, I'm interested in people.
7 "There's nothing new to say on the subject. Don't you still have the message of the earlier prophets from the time when Jerusalem was still a thriving, bustling city and the outlying countryside, the Negev and Shephelah, was populated?
