18 Then the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
19 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'The fast of the 1fourth, the fast of the 2fifth, the fast of the 3seventh and the fast of the 4tenth months will become 5joy, gladness, and cheerful feasts for the house of Judah; so 6love truth and peace.'
20 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'It will yet be that 7peoples will come, even the inhabitants of many cities.
21 'The inhabitants of one will go to another, saying, "Let us go at once to 8entreat the favor * of the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts; I will also go."
22 'So 9many peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem and to 10entreat the favor * of the LORD.'
23 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'In those days ten men from all the nations will 11grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.""'
